UNIL offers around 10 excellence scholarships to students holding a bachelor’s degree from a university outside Switzerland, to enroll in one of the 42 master’s programs offered by UNIL. Awardees will be granted a monthly scholarship of CHF 1,800 for the whole duration of the master’s program (1,5 or 2 years).
Masters Scholarships are scholarships for excellence awarded, exclusively to students whose academic results are of a very high level. The scholarship is granted for the minimum statutory period of the programme chosen by the student. It amounts to CHF 1,800 per month from 15 September to 15 July (or 10 months a year) for the complete duration of the masters, with the exception of cases of definitive failure after the first year.
However, this is not a fully funded scholarship – the sum awarded is not sufficient to live in Switzerland. Therefore, the candidates are invited to consult the page about the reference budget of a student at UNIL.
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.
Applications for 2024-2025 are now open until November 1st. More information is available on the UNIL website.
