Applicants from other Countries (non-EU/EFTA)

Applicants from other Countries (non-EU/EFTA) must first undergo preliminary checks regarding their eligibility for the course, and pass any competitive and/or ability examinations that may be required. Admission then depends on a permit of stay being issued by the appropriate Cantonal and Federal Authorities.

Foreigners who are required to obtain a visa must make a visa application to the Swiss Consular representation abroad that has jurisdiction for their place of domicile. The visa application form is issued free of charge by this representation office abroad. It must be accompanied by the travel document, and, if requested, by further documentation testifying the reason for the journey.

For administrative reasons, applications to SUPSI must be made by 15 April 2019, while applications to the Cantonal Authorities for foreigners, together with the required documents, must be received by the SUPSI Executive by 30 June 2019.

Matriculation is completed provisionally until the applicant presents a copy of the residence certificate obtained, and becomes final only once this document has been received by SUPSI.

Applicants who must sit selection examinations significantly in advance of the start of their courses will usually receive short-term entry visas for study purposes, issued by the Swiss Consular representation abroad, in order to sit these examinations.
