> Why Geneva
Geneva – crossroads of Europe and home to the headquarters of numerous international organisations. This multicultural city is an environment where all nationalities rub shoulders and the social reality reflects economic and personal situations that are frequently very diverse. This problem is reflected in the demand for healthcare – there are as many foreigners as Swiss nationals receiving care in the canton, and many of the former are confronted with real difficulties.

A long-established university city, Geneva is host to a significant student population, attracted largely by the variety of the social life and entertainment on offer. Between lake and mountain, Calvin’s home city offers a wide range of options throughout the year. There is no shortage of sporting and cultural facilities, giving the city a positive energy.

This is the ideal context for a University of Applied Sciences for health – its location enables students interested in health-related professions to encounter a wide range of situations, making the HEdS ideally placed to fulfil its educational aims. From a clinical point of view, this variety also contributes to the potential for all students to gain valuable experience. The interdisciplinary approaches and teamwork are fundamental aspects of an education that perfectly combines excellence and relevance. The unique characteristics of the Genevan healthcare system open up wide perspectives to future health professionals, whose experiences are further enriched by foreign exchanges.

The HEdS-Genève places all these resources at the disposal of its students, enabling them to benefit from the optimum conditions in which to obtain Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees recognised throughout Europe and beyond, and to maximise their potential in their chosen field.
