Part-time Master

Part-time Master (does not concern the Master of Science in Nursing Sciences)
Under certain conditions, a Master programme can be followed part-time. In this case, it corresponds to part-time studies (50%) over the total duration of the studies. It is not possible to change from full-time studies to part-time studies during a programme.
The student must express and justify his intention to follow part-time studies when he applies to the master. The semester fees for part-time studies are the same as those for full-time studies.

Reasons allowing to request part-time studies:

1. Medical reasons, if they are important and durable (handicap or disease); join a medical certificate attesting the situation.

2. Family reasons, if they are important and durable, such as, in particular, a person depending on you (child, sick or handicapped husband, wife or parents, etc); join a document attesting the situation: copy of the family record book, medical certificate, etc.

3. Professional reasons, when the candidate has to work (minimum of 30%, master training course or a position as an assistant student at UNIL not included); as soon as he is in possession of the documents attesting his employment - letter of the employer attesting the rate of engagement as well as the duration of the contract - the student forwards them to the Admissions Service.

4. Personal project, for example a cultural, associative, humanitarian, professional, sportive (high level) project, etc; join a file describing the project.

Grants / scholarships : in some cases scholarships are not granted for part-time studies (part-time Master). It is therefore advised to contact the authorities granting the scholarship.
The University of Lausanne requires from all candidates applying for part-time studies for professional reasons the proof of an employment of at least 30%, meaning a minimum of 12h00 per week.
