Applying to Medical School

General Information

If you wish to start your studies either in human medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine or in chiropractics in the autumn Semester of 2018, you must Register electronically at swissuniversities by 15 February 2018.

The online application for admission to medical school is available on 23 of November 2017.

Please read the information sheet on the 2018 registration process carefully.

Please note that the form sent to the corresponding email address once online registration has been completed must also be posted to swissunivsersities by this deadline.

Please visit our FAQ page for further details and check our new Self-Assessment page for information about personal "soft skills" and candidate suitabillity for medical training.

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.
