Free choice course module

In the second year, students complete free-choice courses along with their Master's thesis.

In module 4 of the MSc, students complete their academic curriculum with free choice courses in the "Optional course" module. Students can take master courses given within the Faculty, the University or at another Swiss University  with the agreement of their Master’s thesis supervisor. Any other courses offered in the other 2 orientations can also be taken.

Students can choose to participate in our "Séminaire interfacultaire en environnement". 3 ECTS credits will be allocated for the full participation at this seminar. The study plan also provides the possibility to register for an INTERNSHIP in the Free-Choice module.

After having made his/her choice, the student must send the Free-choice course form, duly completed and signed to the admin desk of the Master within the enrolment period for courses.

All MSc students must fill out this form!  

Check the registration deadlines for courses and exams, especially in case of courses at other faculties, EPFL or other universities.

Note: When requesting leave, it is not possible to follow courses, however, the student can take an exam, and therefore acquire credits, during the semester of leave requested, depending on the type of request made. You will find the GSE Faculty's guideline on leave requests.
