Degrees & ECTS
 

We are an institution of higher education, accredited by the Swiss government to deliver degrees - fully recognized academic credentials.

By completing a degree programme’s requirements, you will earn:

  • a Certificate of Advanced Studies (CAS): 2 modules, 15 ECTS*

  • a Diploma of Advanced Studies (DAS): 4 modules, 30 ECTS*

  • accumulate credits and receive a Master of Advanced Studies (MAS), 60 ECTS* (recognised as equivalent to a Master programme)

Upon successful completion, you will receive the diploma, transcript of grades and supplement to the diploma, with comprehensive information about your degree.

*ECTS stands for European Credit Transfer System, a system recognized by 49 countries (part of the Bologna system) now to facilitate transfer of academic qualifications and recognition of degrees between these countries.

As an institution delivering official degrees, if your country is not part of the Bologna system, you can still ask for the legalisation of your degree by the Canton of Geneva, so that it is then recognised for official procedures in your country.
