What will I learn?

In the Computer Science Department at Webster University Geneva, our objective is not just to provide students with a solid background in the different areas of the discipline, but also to encourage and help develop students' creativity and originality. Classes combine theory and practice with practical work constituting up to 50% of the class time. Individual and teamwork projects are another essential feature of our pedagogy and classes are small to enable you to receive individual help from professors. Many of our faculty are also IT professionals or active researchers and will provide you with insight of the latest technologies.

Entry requirements

For international students

You may apply before you receive your high school diploma, but your admission status will be contingent upon successfully completing your secondary education.

A minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of about a 2.5 on a 4 point scale, or its equivalent in other grading systems (academic achievement in programs that use a grading or assessment scale other than a 4.0 is evaluated in the context of the relevant academic system).

Also, the English language proficiency minimum requirement is either a TOEFL score of 550 points on the Paper-based test (PBT); or 80 points Internet-based test (iBT), OR an IELTS score Overall band 6.0. Webster periodically offers an institutional TOEFL exam date, when you can take the exam on campus (however, note that your score report would only be valid for use at Webster).

If you score between 510 and 550 on the paper-based TOEFL (64-80 on the iBT) or between a 5.5 and 6.0 on the IELTS and your GPA is equivalent to 2.5 or higher on a 4 point scale, you may be admitted on the condition that you take English as a Second Language (ESL) course(s) when you first enroll at Webster.
