UNIL is offering excellence masters scholarships awarded exclusively to students who have graduated from a foreign university and whose academic results are of a very high level. 

The scholarship is granted for the minimum statutory period of the program chosen by the student. It amounts to CHF 1,600 per month from 15 September to 15 July (or 10 months a year) for the complete duration of the masters (one and a half years or two years depending on the chosen masters), with the exception of cases of definitive failure after the first year. Students offered a scholarship will be exempt from the fixed registration fees for the courses, with the exception of the CHF 80.00 fees to be paid each semester. Candidates must be aware of the fact that the sum of the scholarship awarded is not sufficient to live in Switzerland.

Scholarship Programs:

Student can apply for any master program except for the following:

  • Master from the School of Medicine
  • Master of education
  • Master of Law from the Universities of Zurich and Lausanne
  • Master of Criminal Law, magistracy specialism
  • Master of Science in Physical Education and Sports Didactics
  • Master of Science in Health Sciences
  • All MASs (Ph.D. programs)

For the Master of Law, only two specialisms, "international and comparative law" and "legal theory" are open to applications for Masters scholarships.
