Restrictions on Admission
The Government Council of the Canton of Zurich annually determines the number of study places for medical degree programs (human medicine, dental medicine, veterinary medicine and chiropractic medicine).
Based on the number of registrations to swissuniversities, the Government Council decides whether admission restrictions should be imposed and whether prospective students have to take an aptitude test.
Applicants with Foreign Nationality
Because the number of students is limited, students with foreign nationality will only be accepted to the program if they have a residence permit approved by UZH.
Conditions for Admission
In addition to the restrictions on admission, a study place can generally only be allocated, if the admission requirements for a Bachelor's or Master's degree program are met.
