The University of Lausanne (aka UNIL) in Switzerland offers the UNIL Master’s Scholarship Grants to international students wishing to pursue a Masters Degree at the University.
The UNIL Master’s Grants, offered to students with qualifications from foreign universities, aim to facilitate access to UNIL Master’s degrees. The University awards these Master’s grants on a competitive basis.
- 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.
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.
