The student guide provides a walkthrough on everything from finding housing to picking a bank to getting a cell phone. The guide will include information on how to get the most out of living in Geneva and how to make this transition as easy as possible.

For incoming students, it provides a small glimpse into life in Geneva, and may answer specific questions that they have about life at IHEID. While some of the information they seek may come from the administration or from school materials, this guide comes from students, and thus has an on-the-street perspective including student tips and tricks. We feel that this will be useful for students and can avoid problems before they arise.

Several GISA Executive Committees from 2010 to 2022 have been responsible for building the Student Guide. It was first launched on our old website in Spring 2012.
