Admission & Registration Fees

Given the current situation related to the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a possibility that the Winter Courses may not be able to take place. Should the Academy be forced to cancel the 2021 Winter Courses session, your registration fees will be reimbursed to you.

  • Candidates holding a 3-year university law degree (LL.B. or other) on the start date of the upcoming Winter Courses, preferably having already followed some courses in international law.

All candidates must master one of the two working languages (English or French).

Your registration will be confirmed via a letter of admission upon receipt of the payment by our bank. Tuition fees are not refundable except in cases of serious medical emergency or other exceptional circumstances, to be assessed by and proven to the Academy.

NB: Eligible full-fee applications are reviewed on a rolling and first-come, first-served basis from the moment the registration period starts (i.e. May 1st). Candidates should note that due to the large number of applications received, the available places tend to fill up rather quickly. Applicants may therefore be put on a waiting list.
