Founded in 1537, the University of Lausanne is composed of seven faculties where approximately 12,400 students and 2,300 researchers work and study. Emphasis is placed on an interdisciplinary approach, with close cooperation between students, professors and teaching staff.

The University of Lausanne is situated at the heart of the French-speaking region of Switzerland, in the middle of Europe – close to France, Germany, Italy, and Austria.

The UNIL campus is spread across three locations, the largest of which is in Dorigny, on the shores of Lake Geneva. This picturesque landscape, with views of the Alps and the lake, provides the ideal setting for study and research.

Doctorate at the UNIL

The Doctorate covers the doctoral training period in the strict sense. It includes two phases, the first oriented towards a broadening of knowledge and scientific methods and the acquisition of research skills through insertion in a research team, the second devoted to writing and defending a thesis. Both phases combine an element of training and an element of intellectual development.

The University of Lausanne awards 26 different doctoral qualifications in its seven faculties (see list below). The doctoral thesis, the final stage of university training, reflects the acquisition of advanced professional skills in the field of research. Over a period of from three to five years, generally on a full-time basis, writing of the thesis and doctoral training allow students to specialise in one of the University’s research fields.

To register for a doctorate at the UNIL, candidates must obtain the approval of a professor prepared to supervise their work (according to procedures in force in each faculty) and satisfy the registration conditions of the UNIL.

Conditions and deadlines for registration as a doctoral student at the UNIL:

In several fields, doctoral training is offered on a structured basis.
