|1. Candidates must apply to swissuniversities in Bern before 15 February 2024 (after this date, no consideration will be given to applications). Online applications are open as of December 2023 (swissuniversities).
It is essential to follow the procedure required by the swissuniversities within the deadlines.
Candidates who have not indicated UNIL as their first choice when applying to swissuniversities cannot apply for medical studies at UNIL after 15 February.
In April at the latest, swissuniversities will inform all candidates personally about the procedure to be followed later in order to enrol in medical studies.
Note: it is mandatory to submit an online application at UNIL and your documents to the Admissions Office (Service des immatriculations et inscriptions) before 30 April 2023, further to the enrolment at swissuniversities.
A registration at swissuniversities is not requested for an application to a Master programme. However, a foreign Bachelor of Medecine may not be deemed equivalent to a Swiss Bachelor of Medecine and therefore not give access to a Master programme.
2. The available enrolment capacity in medicine has regularly been exceeded in recent years. Admission of foreign students to medical programmes is based on the Cantonal regulations on admission of foreign candidates to medicine studies.
3. Students who have started the first year of the Bachelor of Medicine in another Swiss or foreign Faculty of Medicine will no longer be eligible in the Bachelor of Medicine at UNIL with the exception of students who have passed the first-year competition at the University of Neuchâtel and who have obtained a place at UNIL.
