Admission conditions for a Master programme

 

Candidates are eligible for enrolment in a Master programme if they hold a Bachelor degree awarded by a Swiss university or another university qualification deemed equivalent by the Rectorate in the corresponding discipline.

Candidates holding a HES* Bachelor are admitted subject to catch up the missing theoretical bases during the Master programme.

*Haute Ecole Spécialisée

Candidates with a Bachelor in a different field from the chosen Master programme are admitted on the condition of catching up the theoretical bases before starting their studies.

The faculty regulations or study plans specify the essential theoretical bases.

General rules for university studies
The total number of credits gained and courses taken within the bachelor or master programme or the university degree deemed equivalent by the Rectorate, must have been achieved at a university recognised by the Rectorate of the University of Lausanne.

Only university programmes comparable to those existing in Switzerland and followed at public universities (or at least accredited universities recognised by UNIL) are accepted.

The following programmes in particular are not recognised:

- University programmes including more than 15 ECTS credits out of a total of 180 (or equivalent) for internships
- Technological or vocational university courses
- Correspondence courses or distance learning programmes.

For Master's programmes proposed by:
- Medical school

Language requirement: a C1 level is recommended in the language of instruction of the master concerned. Students whose mother tongue is not French and who have no Swiss secondary school diploma must sit a French exam before final registration for the preparatory year for admission to the Master programme.
