More Information

Webster University is a private, not-profit American university based in St. Louis, USA (since 1915). Webster University Geneva was established in 1978 and carries U.S. institutional accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission (St. Louis, USA, since 1915).

Academic options range across Business Administration, Communications, Computer Science and Cybersecurity, Economics and Finance, International Relations, Human Rights, and Migration Studies, Photography and Psychology — and many elective course subjects, from French classes to Environmental Sustainability.

Webster’s Swiss Campus is set in a suburban park atmosphere, just 5 km from the center of Geneva and its United Nations district. Campus facilities include world-class teaching and learning facilities, Residence Hall with individual rooms (most with individual shower units), cafeteria, student lounge and game room, a fitness center and campus library. Summer participants will have access to (and benefit from) these facilities!

The campus is small yet highly diverse (about 350 to 400 students per year, with about 90 nationalities represented), providing small class sizes with on-campus residences.

For those who are joining the 2-week program — and for local students — Webster is arranging a tour and 1-day hiking trip to the high Alps and other fun group activities on the weekend. (Fees for weekend daytrips are not included in the 1-week pricing options but will be posted online in advance).

For those who attend a full program of one or two weeks, Webster University Geneva will issue a Certificate of Attendance, which can be used to support your extracurricular activities on your future University applications for admission!
