Some advice to begin smoothly:

  1. It is essential to activate your email account provided by the University for the duration of your studies, on the website of the Centre informatique. You will need your username and your password to access the site for course registration and for the portal MyUNIL, which enables you to obtain course materials and track your academic record. The address were you can activate your email address is here.

  2. We recommend that you keep yourself informed about the development of your studies as soon as they begin, then regularly, by consulting the website of the School of Biology.

  3. We recommend that you always refer to the legal texts, for which only the versions in French hold legal standing.
