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.

Application fee

The application fee must be paid for each application to a degree course, and, in principle, amounts to CHF 100.-, except for applications to the affiliate schools, the regulations for which specify other amounts. The application fee is non-reimbursable and may not be detracted from the semester fees charged to students who have been admitted to SUPSI courses. Applications will be considered only if the application fee has been paid.

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 2022, while applications to the Cantonal Authorities for foreigners, together with the required documents, must be received by the SUPSI Executive by 30 June 2022.

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.
