Successful execution of the aptitude test for the medical studies 2019
On Friday July 5, 2019, the aptitude test for the medical studies was successfully carried out. A total of 3887 people took part in the aptitude test, given in three languages, at nine test locations.
Based on the results of the aptitude test swissuniversities annually selects students for the medical studies at the universities with admission restrictions. For further information about the execution of the aptitude test please refer to the statistical report of the Zentrum für Testentwicklung und Diagnostik.
Please note that swissuniversities does not provide any information about the test results or the assignment of study places.
All the information about the procedure after the test you can find here.
You can find information about the different disciplines and study locations here.
PLEASE NOTE: If you wish to switch to a different medical course after enrolment, the actual university and not swissuniversities will deal with this. In some cases, you will be required to register at swissuniversities by a certain date in order to be able to attend a possible aptitude test. There is, however, no centralised assignment of study places for this. If you have any questions, please contact the relevant university.
