Please note: prospective PhD student must print out the copies no. 1 and 2 of the PhD form. The link to the form is given in the online application and in the email acknowledging receipt of the online application (sent immediately after the confirmation by the prospective student of his or her online application).
The faculty or school must return one of the two “attestation de thèse” forms, signed by the thesis director and the Dean’s Office, to the Admissions Service before 15 October 2013 (autumn semester 2013/2014) or 28 February 2014 (spring semester 2014). If the "attestation de thèse" form has been submitted to the Admissions Service after these deadlines, the registration will be postponed to the next semester (or, in case the late application is accepted, the prospective student will have to pay a surcharge of CHF 200.-).
It is therefore important that the candidate sends the “attestation de thèse” forms to his/her thesis director as soon as possible.
