Military service

Due to an agreement with the Swiss Army’s Chief of Instruction, there is an advice point for military matters at the University. This advice is offered at the Uni–Info officess but only at specific opening hours. The advice helps find the best solution for problems caused by the obligations of military service and the requirements of the study program (initial military training school, officer training, ongoing military service, etc.). Applications to delay courses must be submitted to the military authorities of the Canton 14 weeks before the start of the course. Students are therefore strongly encouraged to consult the office in good time, when possible immediately after being informed of their military duties. Students should bring their notification of service and their military service book with them. The new academic calendar no longer allows students to complete the initial military training or officer training in summer and begin the semester in fall. The different options for students are listed on the Army’s website.
