PhD Admission Committee

The University of Lausanne PhD admission committee decides the admission of candidates who do not meet all the formal admission criteria, even though they may have obtained their university degree at a Swiss university or at a foreign higher education establishment recognised by the University of Lausanne. The candidate should have already found a Professor ready to supervise his/her PhD.

All applications for consideration by the Commission must be submitted by the dean of the faculty concerned. On the basis of their positive pre-evaluation, the faculty dean sends the  candidate's complete file to the Vice-Rector for Research and the Graduate Campus two weeks prior to the date of the next commission meeting.

The Commission meets in general four times per semester. For 2023, it will be held on the following dates:

  • February 16   
  • March 23   
  • May 4   
  • June 28
  • October 18   
  • December 6
