Facts About University of Geneva
University of Geneva (UNIGE) is a preeminent public research university situated in the heart of Geneva, Switzerland. Founded in 1559 on the initiative of Jean Calvin, the institution has been promoting excellence for over 450 years and is considered as one of Europe's best universities.
The university first opened its doors as a theological and humanist seminary called Geneva Academy. It later added new disciplines, including Law, Physical and Natural Sciences, and Philosophy. By 1873, it opened the Faculty of Medicine and earned its accreditation as a university. Since then, the university has continued to grow tremendously, opening up new fields of study to become the third-largest university in Switzerland.
At present, UNIGE offers a wide selection of study programs through nine faculties, namely (1) Medicine, (2) Law, (3) Science, (4) Humanities, (5) Theology, (6) Economics, (7) Social Science, (8) Translation and Interpreting, and (9) Psychology and Educational Sciences. Moreover, the university has fourteen interdisciplinary centers and hosts seven National Centers of Competence in Research (NCCRs). The NCCRs include SwissMap, Synaptic Bases of Mental Diseases, Chemical Biology, Frontiers in Genetics, PlanetS, LIVES, and MaNEP.
In addition, the institution has built an exceptional network with multiple international organizations including the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN), World Health Organization (WHO), and the United Nations (UN). The university has several campuses and sites in Switzerland including its main campus, Uni Mail, Uni Bastions, Uni Carl-Vogt, Uni Pignon, Battelle, Ancienne École de Médecine, Pavillon Mail, and Centre Médical Universitaire (CMU).
Just like Geneva itself, the institution enjoys a good international reputation both in terms of academic excellence and research. For this reason, UNIGE has been able to draw a total of 17,700 students from more than 150 countries around the world.

To help students in research and learning, the university has numerous libraries spread across four locations. Its Uni Arve campus has seven libraries; Uni Bastions has libraries that provide references for language, history, and musicology; Uni CMU offers a vast collection of medical issues; and Uni Mail hosts the institution’s multimedia library.
