Information per program

The Master (MScCCF) and (MST) are not open to exchange students.


Language instruction

Bachelor programs are taught in French with a selection of courses in English.

At the Master level courses are mostly in English.


Non HEC courses (other faculties, language courses)

Bachelor and Master exchange students are authorised to take non-HEC courses. The courses/exams registration will be made directly at the faculty/school concerned by the student. Please ask them to provide you with an attestation/transcript of records.

We draw your attention to the fact that the exam dates of non-HEC courses are not set by HEC Lausanne. Therefore, the risk of an overlapping of exam dates between HEC Lausanne and non-HEC courses exists. HEC exam dates cannot be modified under any circumstances. The solution is to register afterwords for the retake session.


Most courses must be taken at HEC Lausanne, the main faculty where the student is enrolled.

A limited number of courses at EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) are open to students on request before or at the beginning of the semester at the department concerned. You should contact the departement concerned directly.

Important! Pay attention to the registration deadlines!
