Semester fees for doctoral studies

Candidates to doctoral studies have to pay a single fee of CHF 200.-- in their first semester and a semester fee of CHF 80.-- each semester.

Doctoral students have to be enrolled at UNIL from the beginning to the end of their doctorate, i.e. until their thesis has been registred at the Bibliothèque Cantonale et Universitaire.

Late applications and inscriptions

An extra fee of CHF 200.—will be charged for late applications and inscriptions, if accepted by the Admissions Service.

Note that late applications are not automatically accepted.

Note : The fees must be paid within the deadline mentioned on the invoice. Failing to do so, you will receive a reminder at your UNIL e-mail address with copy in MyUnil; you will be given a final time limit to pay (5 days).

If the fees are not entirely payed within the deadlines, the student is automatically exmatriculated.

An exmatriculation can only be cancelled if :
- the fees are payed immediately after the exmatriculation
- the faculty agrees to the registration of the student
- the student pays the extra fee for late registration (CHF 200.-) immediately

The invoice available on the portal MyUnil contains all the information needed to pay the fees in Switzerland or from abroad.
