Our graduate programs are in English, and we also offer a signature Health Care Management Degree and a Healthcare Leadership Certificate that are taught in French. Most master's courses are delivered on weekday evenings, convenient for working professionals — and allowing for daytime internships. Our MBA offers in-person classes on the weekend.

Students graduating from the MA in Counseling will also benefit from access to Swiss Association for Counseling (SGfB) accreditation, which is key for practicing in Switzerland.

Master Degree Fact Sheet

Master-level courses are eight weeks in duration, so courses and topics change often. This allows first-time master students to enroll at several points throughout the year. If you are unsure about your start date, please feel free to reach admissions to discuss the options!

You do not need to wait until you have received an undergraduate degree to apply. Your application will be evaluated once you have submitted it.

If you are not an EU, Swiss citizen or Swiss residency holder, we strongly recommend that you apply a minimum of three months before the term start date. The visa process takes different lengths of time depending on your country of citizenship. You should apply for your visa as soon as you have been accepted to Webster Geneva Campus and have received your acceptance package, which includes visa application information.

If for any reason your visa is not awarded on time, simply notify your Admissions Officer so they can defer your acceptance to the next starting term.

Class sessions are held in the evening starting at 6:30 p.m. (Geneva time). Full-time students will have classes two evenings per week, Monday through Thursday, from 6:30 p.m. Part-time students will only have classes one evening per week. 

Except for MA in Counseling students, full-time master's degree students can complete the course in six terms; part-time students in 12 terms. Full-time MA in Counseling students can complete their course in eight terms; part-time students in 16 terms.

Plan Your Degree to Match Your Finances

You can adjust your pace of study and switch between one or two nights per week. Note: if you are enrolling with a student visa then you will need to maintain the pace of two nights per week (six credits per term). Tuition invoices are generally due before Week 1 of each term start.

Applicants who earn admission can subsequently apply for Financial Aid through a form dedicated for the Webster Geneva Campus campus.

Scholarships at the graduate level are generally awarded based on demonstrated financial need, yet the applicant’s relevant professional experience, English proficiency level and prior academic performance at university (for recent bachelor students) are also considered.

A scholarship committee reviews applications on a rolling basis, based on available funds. Any funds awarded by the scholarship committee are distributed across each invoice of the academic year. Funds are renewable until graduation, provided a student maintains a 3.0/4.0 grade point average.
