About the University and Scholarship

On the banks of Lake Geneva, the University of Lausanne is a public university with over 14,300 students and 3,000 researchers. The university’s ancestry can be traced to a Protestant theological institution in French that was established in 1537. Over time, the school added faculties until it was transformed as a university in 1890. It relocated from the historic Lausanne to its current location in Dorigny in 1970. The site is connected to Lausanne by public transportation. Seven faculties make up UNIL, with the most recent additions in 2003 being the faculties of geosciences and environment and biology and medicine. One-third of the teaching staff and about one-fifth of the students are international.

Currently, the university of Lausanne in Switzerland offers the UNIL Master’s Grants on a competitive basis to international students who wish to pursue a Masters Degree at the University.
