Founded in 1559 by Jean Calvin and Théodore de Bèze, the Université de Genève (UNIGE) is dedicated toicreathinking, teaching, dialogue and research. It is Switzerland’s second largest university with more than 17’000 students of 152 different nationalities and about 2’900 researchers FTE (including 523 professors FTE), who study and work in 9 different faculties (Science; Medicine; Humanities; Law; Theology; Psychology and Educational Sciences; Translation and Interpreting; Economics and Management; Social Sciences) and 13 interfaculty centres. The university enjoys a strong international reputation, both for the high quality of its research and the excellence of its education. This acclaim has been won in part due to its strong ties to many national and international Geneva-based organizations, such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Telecommunications Union (ITU), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN).
