Applications to the degree courses conducted by the Scuola universitaria di musica del Conservatorio della Svizzera italiana (SUM-CSI) and the Fernfachhochschule Schweiz (FFHS) follow different procedures. Details can be found oh their websites:

Applications to DACD, DEASS, DTI and ATD received after the specified deadline will be accepted provided places are still available.

Due to organisational reasons, the Department of Formation and Learning (DFA) will be unable to accept applications arriving after the deadline specified above.

SUPSI reserves the right to cancel programmes or courses should the number of applications be insufficient.

Activities involving the verification of admission requirements, the organisation of admission or competitive examinations, and admission "on dossier" (recognition of prior learning) are conducted by the Departments, under the supervision of the SUPSI Executive.

In view of the limited number of places available on the Health Sciences and Social Work degree courses, examinations will be held ordering applicants in order of merit. The examination date is 27th April 2020, from 17.30 for the Health Sciences and Social Work courses conducted at Manno, and from 14.00, for the Health Sciences course conducted at Landquart.

Given the limited number of places available, applicants to the Bachelor in Leisure Management (DEASS) degree course must take ranking examinations, which will be on Saturday 23rd May 2020.

Applicants to Health Sciences and Social Work courses, who have passed the examinations ordering applicants in order of merit, but who have not yet completed the pre-course work experience period, will be eligible to begin their studies in academic year 2021/2022.

There are only a limited number of places available on the degree course in Visual Communication (Part-time).

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 15th April 2020, while applications to the Cantonal Authorities for foreigners, together with the required documents, must be received by the SUPSI Executive by 30th June 2020.

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. Consult the following website for further information.
