Very good university, always somebody to help you.
The University of Geneva offers a very interesting interdisciplinary programme. I especially appreciated professional teachers and their proximity to the student.
Very nice and comfortable building, library is amazing. The teaching way is a disaster, as in many universities though. Very archaic study frame of 45min of lecture, where there is minimal students participation.
