The University of Lausanne in Switzerland offers the UNIL Master’s Grants on a competitive basis to international students who wish to pursue a Masters Degree at the University.
What is a Masters scholarship at UNIL?
Masters 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 programme 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.
Candidates are made aware of the fact that the sum of the scholarship awarded is not sufficient to live in Switzerland.
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.
What are the programmes for which it is possible to apply for a Masters scholarship?
First of all, it is not possible to apply for the following programmes:
The list of all Masters degrees at UNIL that it is possible to apply for with the exception of the one that are mentionned above, can be found at the website link below.
Please note: for the Master of Law, only two specialisms,"international and comparative law" and "legal theory" are open to applications for Masters scholarships.
What are the conditions necessary for applying for a Masters scholarship?
Withdrawal from the programme will lead to the suspension of the scholarship.
How can I apply for a Masters scholarship?
Candidates must send their completed application (refer to the document, "list of documents to attach to your application"), unbound, by post only to the following address:
Université de Lausanne Service des affaires sociales et de la mobilité étudiante (SASME) Bâtiment Unicentre CH - 1015 Lausanne Switzerland
The application form must be completed on a computer and duly signed by the candidate.
The application for the Masters scholarship also serves as an application for admission to your chosen masters (and therefore an application to register at UNIL).
You must not make an application for admission to the masters degree via the Admissions Department (SII).
The deadline for applications is 1 November to begin a masters degree during the following academic year, in the autumn semester or the spring semester if the programme allows. The postmark will attest to the date sent.
Incomplete applications, particularly those lacking certified copies of the academic documents requested, will not be considered.
