Select the entry corresponding to your situation. Don’t forget to respect the deadlines.
PhD-students have to be registered at UNIL from the beginning until the end of their doctoral studies, meaning until the registration of their thesis at the Bibliothèque Cantonale et Universitaire.

You have obtained or will obtain a Master from a Swiss university or a Swiss university of applied sciences (HES) and you wish to start a doctorate at UNIL. 
(Does not concern graduates from UNIL)

You have obtained or will obtain a Master issued by a Swiss university or a Swiss university of applied sciences (HES) or another Swiss university degree deemed equivalent by the Rectorate.
 

You have obtained or will obtain a Master from a foreign university and you wish to start a doctorate at UNIL.

Students wishing to obtain a doctorate must be judged formally eligible for the doctoral programme by the Admissions Office.

They must in particular have a Master deemed equivalent by the Rectorate to a Swiss university or HES Master.

They must send the request form for re-enrolment in doctoral studies to the Admissions Office before 31 July 2018 (autumn semester 2018/2019) or 30 November (spring semester 2019). They will then receive the PhD forms (attestations de thèse) to be completed and signed by their supervising professor. The PhD forms signed by the supervising professor must be hand in to the Doctoral School or the Dean’s Office of the faculty/school and returned to the Admissions Office before 15 October 2018 (autumn semester 2018/2019) or 28 February 2019 (spring semester 2019).

The candidates who have obtained their Master at the examination session preceding the first semester in doctoral studies only have to complete the PhD forms (available at immat.doctorat@unil.ch) and have them signed by their supervising professor. The PhD forms signed by the supervising professor must be hand in to the Doctoral School or the Dean’s Office of the faculty/school and returned to the Admissions Office before 15 October 2018 (autumn semester 2018/2019) or 28 February 2019 (spring semester 2019).
