UNIL Master's Grants:

To facilitate access to Master’s degrees by students with qualifications from foreign universities, the University of Lausanne (UNIL) makes available around ten Master’s grants which are awarded on a competitive basis.

Candidates must choose a Master's programme from among those offered by the UNIL, except the Master of Medicine, Master of Arts in Public Management and Policy, Master of Arts in Sciences and Practices of Education.

The grant may not be used for any complementary studies required to enroll on the Master’s degree and may not be used for EMBAs or Masters of Advanced studies.

Amount and Duration of the Grant:

The amount of the grant is CHF 1,600.- per month from 15 September to 15 July, for a duration not exceeding the regulation minimum period of the programme (according to the programme, one-and-a-half years or two years subject to deduction for paid placements or exempt semesters, if any). Abandonment of the programme results in suspension of the grant.

Required Conditions:

  • The candidate must be the holder of a degree from a foreign university.
  • The qualification held by the candidate must be deemed equivalent to the UNIL Bachelor’s degree.

    Selection Criteria:

  • The grants are intended more particularly for students who distinguished themselves in their university studies and who have difficulty meeting their financial needs for the duration of the Master’s.
  • It is however necessary that the candidates have sufficient financial means to support themselves during the complementary studies that may be required prior to enroll on the Master’s degree.

    Selection Procedure:

    - Candidates complete the "UNIL Master’s Grant" form and submit their application by 15 December.

    - The application is examined by the University Rectorate to determine whether the candidate is admissible. In the event of a positive decision, the application is forwarded by the SASC to the UNIL Faculty responsible for the Master’s on which the candidate wishes to be enrolled.

    - The Faculty selects applications and notifies the SASC of its opinion based on the candidate’s qualities, motivation and suitability for the Master’s programme.

    - The SASC forwards shortlisted applications to the selection committee which will award grants to students meeting all criteria according to the available budget.

    Decisions are not open to appeal.

    Scholarship application deadline: 15 December
