The Master in Standardization, Social Regulation and Sustainable development is interdisciplinary and welcomes applicants from different fields of studies and disciplines.

A Bachelor degree or an equivalent title delivered by a Swiss University or a foreign institution fully accredited by the admissions office of the University of Geneva is mandatory. Therefore, all applications must be submitted through the admissions office. The on-line application process is described step by step here. Please submit all documents before the deadlines (28 February for holders of Bachelor diplomas from Universities outside of Switzerland and 30 April for holders of Bachelor diplomas from Swiss Universities). Apply as early as possible.

In order to speed up the evaluation of the applications, after having completed the on-line application (available from January on) and having sent the documents to the admissions office, please send an email with a scanned version of all documents required in the application form to the Master coordinator ( This will allow the scientific committee of the Master to examine the applications before having received the documents from the admissions office (which is a process that takes time).

In addition to the enrolment documents required by the University of Geneva, international applicants are encouraged to submit the results either of GRE general test (DI Code 0850) or of the GMAT test (Master's code 651-QT-70). You may submit your scores directly to the institutional codes of the Master program until April 30. These tests are not compulsory for the application. However, a high GRE/GMAT score gives a high admission probability to the candidate.

TOEFL (code number 3607), IELTS or an equivalent test is required since compulsory classes are taught in English. The latter requirement is waived for graduates of Anglophone universities or programs. Students with no prior knowledge of French are eligible to apply.
