UNIL Master's Grants to Study in Switzerland


About Scholarship

Master’s Scholarships are scholarships for excellence awarded, exclusively to students who have graduated from a foreign university and whose academic results are of a very high level. UNIL grants around ten scholarships a year. The scholarship is granted for the minimum statutory period of the program chosen by the student.


Candidates whose academic results are of a very high level (there is no list with required grades by country available).

Candidates must have graduated from a foreign university only: their qualification/university degree must be deemed equivalent to a Swiss university bachelor’s degree (180 ECTS credits). If the Masters Scholarship application file is complete, the Admissions Office (SII) will decide if the candidate is formally eligible. If this is the case, the application file will be forwarded to the faculty which will take a decision whether the candidate is admitted to the chosen master program or not.

Students with a foreign university degree who have already begun a Master programs at UNIL or who are in their preparatory year are not authorized to apply.
