|1. Bachelor programme
Candidates must submit a preliminary registration application to swissuniversities in Bern before 15 February 2017 (after this date, no consideration will be given to applications). Online applications are open as of November 2016 (swissuniversities).
It is essential to follow the procedure required by the swissuniversities within the deadlines.
Candidates who have not indicated UNIL as their first choice when pre-registering at swissuniversities cannot apply for medical studies at UNIL after 15 February.
In April at the latest, swissuniversities will inform all pre-enrolled candidates personally about the procedure to be followed later in order to enrol in medical studies.
Note: it is mandatory to submit an online application at UNIL before 30 April 2017, further to the pre-enrolment at swissuniversities.
2. Master programme
A preliminary registration at swissuniversities is not requested for an application to a Master programme. However, a foreign Bachelor in Medecine may not be deemed equivalent to a swiss Bachelor in Medecine and therefore not give access to a Master programme. Admission to the Bachelor programme can only be taken into consideration if the preliminary registration has been submitted to swissuniversities before 15 February 2017.
3. Bachelor and Master programme
The available enrolment capacity in medicine has regularly been exceeded in recent years. Admission of foreign students to medical programmes is based on the Cantonal regulations on admission of foreign candidates to medicine studies.
4. Transfers: a candidate having studied the first year of Bachelor in Medicine at another Medical Faculty, either in Switzerland or abroad, and who wishes to finish his/her Bachelor in Medicine at UNIL, can apply for admission only after completing and validating the first year at his/her home university (including the acceptance into the second year). The procedure described under point 1 has to be respected. Foreign students also have to fulfill the criteria mentioned under point 3.
5. Dental and veterinary medicine are not taught at the University of Lausanne.
