From the time of its creation in 1559 by Jean Calvin, right up to the recent discovery by University astrophysicists of extrasolar planets, the University of Geneva (UNIGE) has continued to grow and develop while maintaining its longstanding tradition of excellence with an international angle. The University of Geneva is the second largest university in Switzerland and is a public institution of the Republic and Canton of Geneva. It pursues three missions: teaching (classes are, in general, taught in French), research, and service to the wider community.

Faculties and focus

The UNIGE is composed of eight faculties:

Sciences Medicine Arts Social Science and Economics Law Theology Psychology and Educational Sciences School of Translation and Interpretation

There also several interdisciplinary centers in areas such as informatics, neurosciences and environmental studies.

Having completed its transition to the "Bologna System" in 2007, UNIGE is now part of the European Space of Higher Education. It offers more than 340 types of degrees and more than 200 continuing education programs covering an extremely wide variety of fields: exact sciences, medicine and humanities.
