Present your original Documents to finalise your registration
When: From 31 August till 1 October
Swiss regulations require each student to register, or enrol, through his/her institution of higher education in Switzerland.
You will receive an email from us to book a registration appointment.
Individual registration appointments take place on campus at the Maison de la paix, at the admission office, Petal 1.
What to bring?
- Passport or identity card (with photo)
- Official, final bachelor's degree transcript
- Bachelor's degree diploma
- Official, final master's degree transcript
- Master's degree diploma
If your official diploma is not printed yet, you will need:
- An official letter from your university, stating the date on which it is expected and confirming your successful completion of the degree
If you have outstanding admission conditions, you will need:
- All the documents required to lift the conditions
If you were previously enrolled at a Swiss university, you will need:
- Exmatriculation attestation
If you completed high school (secondary) schooling in Switzerland, bring:
- Your original Maturité (Matura) diploma
-Required for all documents in a language other than English, French, German, Italian, Spanish or ancient Latin
Chinese and Russian students
- Official, original notarisation certificates
- We cannot accept a transcript of grades in lieu of a university diploma, even if it states degree completion.
- We will not keep your originals. You will only need to show them during your registration appointment.
- Students who fail to complete their registration will not be able to join our study programmes.
The registration process allows us to:
- See your original documents, in order to authenticate the transcripts and diploma of the degree on which we based our admission decision, per Swiss higher education regulations.
- Ensure that you have a Swiss Higher Education Information System ID number ("SIUS" number).
This in turn permits us to comply with the data transmission requirements of the Swiss Federal Office of Statistics. The SIUS number ensures that student data is processed anonymously.
If you have previously enrolled at a Swiss institution of higher education, you already have a SIUS number: please bring your exmatriculation certificate from the previous institution.
- Send accurate student records to the Swiss Federal Office of Social Security, to ensure that each student has a Swiss social security ("AVS") number.
We need your date and place of birth and your parents' names for the Social Security Office to identify you.
If you live in Switzerland, you will need this number for various services, including medical insurance.
Even if you do not plan to live in Switzerland, you must have a social security number – it's the law.
