Originally founded as a theological seminary and law school in 1959, the University of Geneva is considered to be one of the best 100 universities in the world. The third-largest university in Switzerland in terms of student numbers, it has a sizeable international population. Almost 40% of the university’s students come from abroad.

Emilie Bissardon

I have been a professional guide in Geneva since 2009. I have studied at the University of Geneva for the Certificate of Advanced Studies "Patrimoine et Tourisme". I work with the tourist office of Geneva and the museum of the Martin Bodmer Foundation. I am passionate about the history of Geneva. It is so rich that there is always more to discover and I love that! I also appreciate the melting pot of cultures from around the world in a human-scale city where you can do everything on foot and go from the lake to the historical centre to a park in a flash.

From USD 45 / Screen
