well I am not a swiss student but I can tell you that MAS on Geneve University is complete on French and on The Graduate Institute of International Studies is on English but they demand that you have a passive knowlegde of French.
And master on The Graduate Institute lasts two years and I think that on Geneve University lasts one year. I have just resived an e-mail from general secretariat from The Graduate Institute and they demand a lot of things (three letters of recommendation , of course proof that you know English,motivation letter where you explain resons why you want to study at HEI,photocopies of the official record of university examination taken and of grades obtained together whit the grading scale and its value,a waiver of the French language requirement form...etc.) I think that you must be an excellent student and I think its heavy to get there. But I will try I dont have nothing to lose. In my country grading scale value is from 5 to 10,of course 10 is the best,but mine will be 8.5. So I dont know is it enough for them.

Dear Sanja,
Thanks for your reply.
Actually, the courses and seminars of the Master of Advanced Studies in Business Law are conduted in English and French. Both masters offer courses in English and French.By the way, a friend of mine told me that is really hard to get into both programsbecause you have to demonstrate that you are fluent in both languages and you also have to show a strong academic background.
I wish you good luck in your application

So I am going to ask the question again
Which Master is better
The Master of Advanced Studies offfered by the University of Geneva or the Master in International Law offered by the Graduate Institute of International Studies.
I need the opinion of a swiss or french student

Dear all,
It is true that the programme selection of the Graduate Institute of International Studies is quite tough - nevertheless fluency is french is not so much necessary (you need to take a short exam to demonstrate you understand French/English) at the start of the year. It is not a key to your selection since all exams and papers can be written in both languages.
One interesting feature of HEI is it is interdisciplinary (focus on Law but get a little bit of Polisci, History or Economics) and provide also with soft skills (communication etc.) depending on the Master you choose. To my opinion this is a great place to study since the Faculty is pretty renowned and the group of students is truly international.
Dont hesitate if you have any questions.

Hi,

I will be applying to the MA in International Law.

Why is it, though, that this Law Masters is not an LLM? Is it the equivalent to an LLM, i.e. a legal qualification?

Also, what is the age range of candidates usually?
