Admission as a visiting student for complementary studies

  • General information

    Conditions

    Any person registered at another Swiss university may attend a limited number of courses at the UniFR as a visiting student for complementary studies. In this case, he/she can validate credits by handing in written papers or by taking exams.

    Restrictions

    • The status of a visiting student for complementary studies is granted for a maximum of two semesters. An extension may, however, be obtained with the Faculty’s consent.
    • The application for admission is only valid for one semester; a new online application must therefore be submitted for each additional semester.

    Costs

    Visiting students for complementary studies do not pay semester fees at the UniFR.

  • Application procedure

    1. Consulting the course offerings

    Details of courses on offer can be found online. Should you have any questions, please contact the Studies Information Office (studies@unifr.ch), as the Office for Admissions cannot provide course information or advise you on your choice of course.

    • Autumn semester:
      1 March - 30 September

     No exception can be made regarding a change of deadline.

    4. Uploading your registration certificate and receiving a confirmation

    Once the online application validated, you will have to provide a registration certificate from your home university for the semester you wish to be registered. Please upload this document on Inscruni (PDF).
