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.
