Geneva Academy 2024-2025 Applications

Hi Everyone,

Has anyone got any interview with the Academy? when I was going through previous year posts, I saw there were interviews by the Academy


Same. It looks like before they conducted interviews with the potential candidates in
Feb/March. Maybe it’s the same this year, just candidates don’t share this info 


Hi .. I contacted the Academy and I was informed that this time they are not going to conduct interviews and the results will most probably be out by end of next week mentioning whether the application is rejected/Accepted or put on a waiting list.


Thank you a lot! Let's wait until the end of next week then

If anyone does get a response from the Academy, please do inform on the group. It would be great if everyone could also specify if they took the scholarship or the non-scholarship track :) Good luck guys :))

Hello! Would anyone know if it's possible to be offered a slot without a scholarship (despite having applied via scholarship track) or will non-selection for scholarship necessarily mean the application won't be considered vis-a-vis self-paying ones? I read a comment/reply somewhere that implied applicants via self-paying route would receive their results separately and now I feel positively confused. Hehe. Thank you!!!

So, from what I know Geneva usually does not give the option where if you had applied via the scholarship track, you'd also be considered for the non-scholarship track. They're very distinct tracks (idk why). I thought this was the general rule, except there's an entry on LLM Guide from the previous year discussion about how this one person was given an offer (no scholarship) even though he applied via the scholarship track. Idk how accurate this is because there's nothing about this on Geneva's official website.
People who apply via the non-scholarship track get their results before the non-scholarship track (at least this was the trend before - you can check previous year board for this). They have some funding campaign and depending on the amount of funding the Uni can secure, the Uni decides on how many people can get a full or partial scholarship. The timeline email was sent to everyone (I am a scholarship track applicant) and according to it, end of April is when Admitted and Waitlisted applicants are supposed to get a response. End of May for non-admitted. This is tentative though but someone previously has mentioned in this board that the Academy should respond within the next two weeks.
That's all the information I have on this.

Yes, those who apply for the scholarship are also offered the opportunity to secure their admission as self-funding candidate where their scholarship application fails.

This was my case last year.

I'm a MTJ Scholarship Applicant. I'd love to connect with fellow MTJ Scholarship applicants here. Here's my Whatsapp contact and email address(2348159196343 and nuelbowilliams@gmail.com)

Also, by this time last year, self-funding applicants got their response. Theirs come first before the scholarship applicants. Like a week space. So, if results for Scholarships applicants are most probably coming out next week, as noted by someone here, then this week, self-funding Applicants should have gotten their response. Is there any self-funding candidate here at all?

Let's keep watch together!

This will better inform us whether they have received the feedbacks from the Academy, as they should be receiving their results this week. That was the case last year. I applied last year, under MTJ Scholarship.

Also, when your scholarship application fails, you will also be automatically considered for self-funding. This occured to me last year. Hope this helps.

Hey, you were accepted last year without scholarship even though you applied with the scholarship? If so, could you share in which date did you receive your acceptance?
Thank you so much!!
I´m applying for the MTJ with scholarship.

Hi everyone! I've been following the discussion for a while now and decided to join since I thoroughly understand the anxiety of waiting and, at least for me, seeing a new post, even if it's from someone in the same situation (i.e., no new info), seems to help.


I've applied for the scholarship track (MTJ) and have not received any update or follow-up since the timeline email.


From what I understand, the reason behind separating the scholarship/non-scholarship tracks is to incentivize people who have other means of funding (self-funding, other scholarships, grants, etc.) to not apply for a GA scholarship, so that those go to students that have no other means of funding and could not study there otherwise. That being said, I had also understood that, as a general rule, those who apply for a full scholarship could sometimes get a partial scholarship offer (which is not very common according to the annual reports on the website), but not a "non-scholarship"/full self-funded offer because it is assumed that someone who applied for a scholarship would not have the means for that. However, considering what Excellence mentioned from their experience, there might also be exceptions to that.


Good luck to us all, and if I get any updates I'll share them asap :)

Hi, Abi, I also had the same understanding as you in regard to the scholarship and non-scholarship tracks.

Let´s hang in there and wait, hopefully we will have news in the next week or so!

Guys,
Do you know by the way how much is a scholarship? Are there any other benefits (like free accommodation? Taking into account that Switzerland is a super expensive place, it is important to know 1f97a

Hi Rosy! The full scholarship covers the tuition cost (18,000 swiss francs) and also living expenses (accomodation, food etc), and the partial scholarship covers only the tuition (so you would need to cover your living expenses by yourself).

Yes, it is possible. I applied last year through the scholarship track and got offered a place for the self-funded track. I got an email asking if I would be interested in forgoing the scholarship application so my chances would be higher. I decided to say yes and got admitted a couple of weeks later. Unfortunately for me, it wasn't feasible to accept the offer with no financial support.
