Geneva Academy Applications 2020-2021

I would suggest you to try find a last minute referee because it will close at 11:59 Geneva Time on the 31.

Another quick question: How do you all interpret the "closes 31 January"? One of my referees still has not sent me his recommendation letter, so I am hoping it is open tomorrow as well.

Hahaha I feel you, it’s just 5:30 Am here and I’m already checking haha. But, if we don’t hear anything from February 1-3, I will just try to forget about it until February 15. And then until March again because those are the dates people received offers before.

I already get the conditional offer from Leiden, but Geneva Academy will be my first choice. So I haven't applied for housing in Leiden right now. If we have to wait until March or even later to have the result, it will get me crazy! Hope could like previous years, the non-scholoship track can hear something from the beginning of Feb. God help me

And if anyone applied for Leiden also, please contact me :)

Yes, but that's for the scholarship track. I saw in other thread that they start sending letters early February. A friend got hers on March 1st last year.

Hi everyone!! In the same boat as you all, but I think we might not get the results until at least March. The last few years it seemed that the Academy was doing things on a rolling basis, and there was no strict timeline for offers to be sent. This year, I think at least, is different. Here's the acknowledgement email I got:


''Dear Applicant

We hereby acknowledge receipt of your application. Please note that incomplete applications will not be considered.

The timeframe for the admission process is as follows:

With Scholarship: Selection and waiting list from March 2020
Without Scholarship: Selection and waiting list from April 2020
We make every effort to keep our admission process as swift as possible. We therefore regret that we cannot reply to telephone, fax or email inquiries asking us to verify receipt of application materials or confirm application status.

Non-admitted students will be informed, at the latest, by the end of May 2020.

Kind regards,

The Geneva Academy''


I can't pinpoint exactly how......but I've also read the past years' threads (at this time last year the GA LLM thread was buzzing with intense activity). It seems that this year's timeline - March (with scholarship) & April (without scholarship) - I don't think they used this timeline in past years.

Last year the admission process was going on in a rolling basis. I think I saw some people get their non-scholarship offers within Jan and scholarship offers maybe even in early Feb. This year, nothing yet....

So to me, it seems like, as they mentioned in the email, this year they will sort out the scholarship applications first, and then the non-scholarship applications, and the first offers will start rolling out in March.

I was able to submit my scholarship application only about 50 mins before the deadline!! And GA is the only place I am applying to, because I think it is absolutely the perfect place for me.

So like all of you, I'm also quite nervous, but being quite busy with work right now, I am trying to avoid thinking about it. But every once in a while, I come back to this page, and reading the posts makes me even more anxious. But I can't avoid coming here haha!!

Good luck to you all. Hope we all get our offers, and that we can all go to Geneva, become friends, and have the best time ever!!!!!

Hi! I have no idea how they are doing it right now but I wouldn’t derive that from the timeframe in that letter. I can assure you it was the same timeframe they had last year and some years before. Although, overall you might be right and we could have to wait until March/April but that’s not different from the deadlines in previous years.

I think it would be healthy just to wait straight until mid March but who are we kidding? We are going to come looking and checking every email right away hahaha

Ahh, so in past years they had the same timeline. Well, in that case, I stand corrected.

But now this makes me more anxious, so we might hear from the Academy anytime, at any moment. Thanks Andy for making my day haha! Now I have to come back to this page even more often.

Hi everyone!

I applied on the scholarship track! Obviously, anxiety is killing me but I just wanted to ask you something quick. Do you think it is possible to get admitted even if you dont have that much of work experience?

I am dyinggg. Bye

Hi Montserrat

I think it depends upon the overall application. My understanding is that they consider the application as a whole, including academics, potentially work experience, but references as well. Its also important to demonstrate somehow that you are really interested in IHL, and are going to pursue a career in this area.

Work experience I think helps in demonstrating your interest in IHL, as well as showing that you can contribute your experiences to the course. But summer courses, conferences etc also can do the same.

I don't think everyone has many many years of work experience, some definitely do. Some people might have really good academic degrees, some already have an LLM before applying to this course, but maybe not a lot of work experience.

It all depends on the overall application. That's how I understand it.

Don't die yet!! We are all feeling the same!!

If it makes you both feel a little bit better, I apply to Leiden University in 2017 before finishing my bachelor of law. I did have two moot courts competitions, two years working as a assistant for a chief justice in my country and other international experiences (conferences, MUN) but not real professional experience in International Law. I was admitted and did the programme and it went well.

Good luck to both!

I woke up to a mail from the Academy asking for an interview this Monday (I’m on full scholarship track).

I didn’t expect it and I’m super nervous. Do you think it’s good or bad? I’m dying

Congratulations! That’s definitely good news, I read they have interviews for the scholarship track, particularly in the MTJ! Good luck in the interview and thank you for letting us know.

Note: For those who applied to the LLM on the scholarship track and you haven’t been contacted, I think there are two different process for the MTJ and LLM. Issa applied to the MTJ.
