Equivalencies (Credit transfers)

The School of Biology can recognize previously taken courses as replacements for equivalencies but only for the academic curriculum for which the request is made.

A request can only be made for courses that formed part of a successful year of study or if a degree has been obtained.

The student must have passed an exam in the courses for which an equivalency credit is sought.

A student who obtains equivalencies must acquire at least 60 ECTS credits in the School of Biology curriculum to obtain the corresponding degree awarded by the Faculty.
 

Appeals

Directives for the acceptance of an appeal

An appeal can only be lodged within the 33 calendar days following the electronic notification of the exam results (initial date = email announcing the publication of the results on MyUNIL, sent by the secretariat of the School of Biology).

To be accepted, an appeal must:
• Cite precise and admissible motives, such as non-compliance with the regulations, improper procedure, grievance over arbitrariness, etc.
• Be written by the student or be accompanied by a proxy of the student if it is lodged by a third person.

A “request for justification of a mark” (but not a dispute of the mark) can be sent to the professor concerned, who must give the student permission to consult the test(s).

Address to appeal to:
 

Direction de l’Ecole de biologie
Quartier UNIL-Sorge
Bâtiment Amphipôle
CH-1015 Lausanne
