Note: only complete applications submitted within the specified deadlines will be examined.

The deadlines are to be respected even if the diploma giving entitlement to registration (school-leaving diploma, baccalauréat, Bachelor's degree, Master's degree etc) is not issued before the end of the summer, respectively at the end of the year.

In this case return the other documents within the deadlines indicating when the copy of the diploma granting access to UNIL will be sent to the Admissions Office. However, candidates must provide the missing documents as soon as possible to allow processing of the application, failing to do so the application will be cancelled.

This is particularly important for candidates who must take the French examen or the Complementary examination of Swiss Higher Education Institutions (ECUS).

The Admission Office reserves the right to require the applicant to provide additional documentation.

All deadlines, including those valid for students already registered at UNIL:
