Веб-сайт: unil.ch

 

Eligibility and Selection

The programme is aimed at undergraduate students who have completed the second or third year of their university degree in any biological or medical field. Undergraduate means the first 4 years of university training usually towards a bachelor's degree. Applicants who have completed only one year of an undergraduate degree, or who will have graduated by the time of the programme are not eligible.

The programme is highly competitive and students are chosen based upon their academic record (typically GPA >3.75 or equivalent, and/or top 5% class ranking), personal statements, and letters of recommendation.
If your university does not use a 4 point scale, then include an explanation of your grading scale in the online application (under curriculum vitae B). Differences in grading scales will be taken into consideration, but you must be in the top 5 % of your class.

Students can be of any nationality and be studying in any country, but should have very good abilities in written and spoken English.

Students must be present for the entire programme to participate.

Selected participants will be informed via email about 3 weeks after the application deadline.
