Graduate Admissions

Graduate AdmissionsThe Webster University graduate admissions staff in Geneva will help you through the steps towards applying to one of our Master’s programs. 

We will work closely with you to assess which of our graduate degrees is best suited for your profile and professional aspirations in Switzerland or beyond.

Graduate-level (master) courses at Webster University Geneva are 8-weeks in length (comparable to 'half-semester' duration).  Courses are scheduled during five terms per year (Fall 1, Fall 2, Spring 1, Spring 2 and Summer session).

Therefore, Webster University Geneva offers five start dates for new students, for nearly all of our graduate programs, with the exception of the MA in Counseling which generally only offers admission for courses beginning in August and January.

Rolling Admissions:  You may submit your application at any time during the year, and designate your desired start date during the online application process.  If you require a student visa for residence in Switzerland be sure to complete the application process at least two months in advance--or contact us for guidance if there is a shorter time frame.

You will be prompted to choose your intended start date when you begin the online application form.  Our next start dates are:

SPRING 2 Term:  courses begin on Monday, March 19, 2018
SUMMER Term:  courses begin on Tuesday, May 22, 2018
FALL 1 Term:  courses begin on Monday August 27, 2018
FALL 2 Term:  courses begin on  Monday, 29 October, 2018

In 2019, the first Spring term will begin in mid-January.
