The Master in Earth sciences is given jointly by the University of Geneva and the University of Lausanne, which means that a student can make an application for registration in one of the two universities according to her/his choice.
This choice can be motivated by personnal reasons but also by the scientific field in which the candidate wants to make her/his Master thesis. In principle and for practical reasons, the student gets enrolled in the university where her/his Master thesis director teaches. It has to be noted that what is not explicity stated in the ELSTE rules is regulated by the university concerned: scholarship application, assistantship etc.. Therefore, it means that an ELSTE student enrolled at the UNIL won't be able to apply for a scholarship at the UNIGE for example. Moreover, please note that during your studies, your place of enrollment may not be changed.
For an enrollment in September 2019, the registration deadline is April 30th, 2019. It is February 28th, 2019 if a visa is needed.
