  • Master of Arts in Sciences and Practices of Education
  • Master of Law from the Universities of Zurich and Lausanne

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.


The amount of the grant is 1,600 CHF (1,300 EUR) 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.


  • 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.


Candidates complete the “UNIL Master’s Grant” form HERE and submit their application to the Office for socio-cultural affairs by 15 December 2013 at the latest by post only:

  1. I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s
    pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all site owners and bloggers made
    good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.
