Grants & Financial support

Reduced semestrial taxes

When you go on exchange as part of an exchange agreement, you are enrolled as an exchange student, which entitles you to a reduction in semester fees. You will therefore only pay CHF 180.- per semester at the UNIL instead of CHF 580.-. There are no registration fees to pay at the host university.
