Living in Geneva/ Living in London


ErgaOmnes
Hi guys! I have an offer to study in Geneva, at the Graduate Institute. However I also hold an offer from LSE. Both schools are great, I know. The problem is that in Geneva I will have to stay for at least 2 years, while in London the program is over 10 months. The main factor is, in this regard, the city. Do you guys think that Geneva could be better for a student than London? I've heard that Geneva can be quiet boring, on the other hand London seems to be more expensive than Geneva. Any thoughts?

Geneva is about 10-20% more expensive than London. A pint of beer is about 10 CHF (£7,30) to give you an example. So I'd go for LSE if money is an issue.

That is true, Geneva is a fantastic place to be if you are into public international law. However, if student life and money is an issue, London still has the upper hand.

I agree with you. Geneva may be less cosmopolitan than London, but that doesn't mean it is less exciting, particularly if you are interested in PIL.
