Study Abroad Programs in the Center of Europe
Situated in the French speaking part of Switzerland on the shores of Lake Geneva in the foothills of the Alps, Geneva is acclaimed as one of Europe's most naturally beautiful and internationally diverse cities. Close to 50% of the population in Geneva come from other countries, and most people in Switzerland speak two or three languages. Local services are accustomed to helping foreigners feel at home--and a significant population in Geneva speaks English.
Home to the European headquarters of the United Nations and numerous International Organizations, Geneva has a long history of diversity and tolerance dating back to the Protestant Reformation. Its humanitarian tradition began with the creation of the Red Cross, and continues today as home of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
Lake Geneva's central location, diverse population and business-friendly policies has attracted global companies and organizations, like Nestle and the International Olympic Committee. Renowned for its quality of life, safety and scenery, the city of Geneva has convenient public transportation system, and its relatively small scale (about 200,000 residents) makes life manageable for study abroad students.
