Restriction of admissions and other requirements
Admission to studies in medicine and dental medicine is limited. The admissions capacity for new students is decided each year. If this capacity is exceeded based on the number of applications received, candidates must take an entrance examination. This has always been the case in recent years. The process is handled by swissuniversities and requires that applications be submitted by the February 15 deadline. Late applications will not be accepted.
In addition to the general admissions requirements, there are special requirements for the access of non-Swiss students to studies in medicine.
