International students


We welcome you to UNIL. Are you an international student and would like to complete some or all of your studies at UNIL? These pages are for you. UNIL has more than 4,000 regular foreign students and hosts more than 500 exchange students each year.

The internationalization of a higher education institution is a great opportunity and it is important for us to ensure that the stay of international students, whether it lasts a semester or five years, takes place under the best conditions. That's why we designed these pages to guide you in your first steps to study in Lausanne.

The exchange student and international student sections contain practical information specific to your UNIL student status and will help you prepare for your arrival in Lausanne in the best possible conditions. We invite you to take the time to browse them carefully.

If necessary, the Social Affairs and Student Mobility Department (SASME) is at your disposal from Monday to Friday from 10h to 17h.
