Studying for a Bachelor’s degree with a foreign qualification

If you have gained a foreign qualification either abroad or in Switzerland which allows you access to higher education (e.g. Abitur or International Baccalaureate), please submit the documents requested by the academic office responsible for the degree programme you have chosen so that your qualification can be checked for equivalency. This equivalency verification process follows the specifications outlined by swissuniversities and takes place after your application has been submitted.

In order to determine in advance whether you are likely to fulfil the admission requirements, please consult this flow chart, which takes you through the recognition process for foreign qualifications. The criteria and steps outlined in the flow chart are also explained in our Fact Sheet for Applicants from Abroad. If you have any further questions, please contact the Academic office.
