Equivalences (transfer credits) can be granted by the Dean’s Office for previous university studies whether a diploma has been obtained or not.

For Bachelor studies (except Bachelor of Medicine) the number of transfer credits granted cannot exceed 60 ECTS credits.

For Master studies the number of transfer credits granted cannot exceed 30 ECTS credits for a programme of 90 ECTS credits, 40 ECTS credits for a programme of 120 ECTS credits and 60 ECTS credits for a programme of 180 ECTS credits.

Students wishing to obtain equivalences for their previous university studies should request, at the same time as the registration application, an equivalence application form from the Admissions Office of the University of Lausanne.

Equivalences can only be requested for the same level of studies.
Therefore, there is no need for candidates to a Master programmes to request equivalences for their Bachelor studies.

The equivalence application form will be sent to the candidate together with the certificate of admission to registration.

It is the responsibility of the candidate to inquire with the faculty or school about the deadline fixed to send back the equivalence application form.

Equivalences cannot be requested before the candidate has been accepted.

You must therefore first apply to the Admissions Office.
