Université de Genève

Even closer Cooperation since 2017

In 2017, the Université de Genève (UNIGE) and UZH entered into a strategic partnership agreement. The largest comprehensive universities in the German and French-speaking parts of Switzerland have long maintained close links in research, teaching and student exchange. The aim of this partnership is to foster and intensify these links and strengthen the visibility and outreach of both institutions within Switzerland and abroad.

About the University of Geneva

The Université de Genève is dedicated to teaching, research and dialogue with society. It is Switzerland’s second largest university with more than 17,000 students and over 500 academic programs. UNIGE was originally established as a theological seminary in 1559 by leading French theologian and pastor, Jean Calvin. It was granted university status in 1873 when it also relinquished its religious affiliations and became a secular institution.
