Registration Mobility within Switzerland: Incoming

Online application

If you think you meet the admission requirements, you can apply using the online application form. If you are not yet in possession of an entry qualification (Swiss Matura, university entry qualification, high school diploma, Bachillerato, or other recognized certificates) at the time of application or before the application deadline expires, please submit them on receipt.

It is advisable to send in your application as soon as the application period begins in order to avoid any delay in beginning your studies.

Incoming mobility students do not have to pay an application fee.

Please note the different application deadlines for students with Swiss and foreign qualifications as well as for mobility students.

Assessment of application

Your application will be reviewed in order to establish whether and in what form you are eligible for matriculation. You will be notified in writing of the decision on admission.

Prompt payment of semester fees

You will receive an invoice for the semester fees with the letter containing the decision on admission. Incoming mobility students don't pay semester fees at UZH. All documents issued by the University of Zurich, such as student ID or proof-of-matriculation vouchers (e.g. for family benefits), will be issued after matriculation, provided you have paid the semester fees. Matriculation becomes legally valid after payment of the semester fees has been received.

You will only have access to the online module booking tool after we have received and booked the full payment.

UZH e-mail and other electronic services

Following matriculation, you will receive a personal UZH e-mail address as well as access data for various other electronic services. Important UZH communications will be sent to your UZH e-mail address only. Your access data is required for semester enrollment, module booking, change of address, and other important electronic services. UZH e-mail address and access data will be provided in writing by the Student Administration Office.

Withdrawing an Application

You can withdraw your application at any time. Paid application fees, however, cannot be refunded.
