UNIL Master’s Grants To International Students

UNIL Master's Grants

The University of Lausanne (UNIL) in Switzerland grants these scholarships to prospective international Master’s degree students. So, if you think that this might be for you, stick around, and let’s talk about the opportunity. 

An Overview

Students of top academic performance can access this annual scholarship program and have graduated from universities outside Switzerland. There are ten units of the scholarship granted every year. Each award lasts for as long as the Master’s program the student has chosen lasts.

Each recipient of the scholarship receives the sum of CHF 1,600 every month for ten months. This applies to programs that last for a year and six months or two years, barring cases of definitive failure after the first year. 

The University of Lausanne would want to inform applicants that the grant does not cover living expenses. As a result, every applicant must consult this page detailing the reference budget of a student at the University of Lausanne. 

Recipients of the scholarship are exempt from the fixed registration fees for the courses. But they will be required to pay the sum of CHF 80 every semester.

  1. I have observed that in cameras, specialized devices help to concentrate automatically. The sensors with some digital cameras change in contrast, while others utilize a beam with infra-red (IR) light, particularly in low lumination. Higher specs cameras from time to time use a mixture of both techniques and could have Face Priority AF where the video camera can ‘See’ a new face while keeping focused only on that. Thank you for sharing your thinking on this blog.

  2. I have been exploring for a little bit for any high quality articles or blog posts on this kind of area . Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this site. Reading this info So i抦 happy to convey that I’ve a very good uncanny feeling I discovered just what I needed.

  3. Admiring the hard work you put into your site and detailed information you present. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same old rehashed information. Excellent read! I’ve saved your site and I’m including your RSS feeds to my Google account.

  4. An interesting discussion is worth comment. I think that you should write more on this topic, it might not be a taboo subject but generally people are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

  5. My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform. I have heard great things about blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
