Undergraduate (BA, BSc, LLB etc.)
Students that have successfully completed A-Levels, the European Baccalaureate, or the International Baccalaureate will be considered for admissions to our undergraduate degrees.
Please check the grade requirements for your chosen degree programme via the undergraduate study section of our website.
We also consider students from Switzerland with the following qualifications:
Federal Maturity Certificate or a Federally Recognised Cantonal Maturity Certificate
Our exact requirements depend on the course that you are applying for, but students usually need to obtain a minimum mark of between 4.0 and 5.0 overall. You are likely to be asked for certain grades in relevant examined subjects.

Taught Degrees (MA, MSc etc.)
Students that apply to one of our Master degree courses are normally expected to have achieved an Upper Second Class bachelor degree, however some courses will also accept a Lower Second Class classification.
Please check the grade requirements for your chosen degree programme via the postgraduate study section of our website.
We are also pleased to also consider students from Switzerland if they have obtained a Bachelor degree with at least 5/6 or 8/10 overall. Of course Master Degree graduates will also be considered if they have similar grades overall.
Some academic schools may reduce their academic requirements slightly for graduates of the University of Zurich.
Please see the link included below under the English Language Requirements section. Students are considered on an individual basis, but some Swiss degrees that are taught in English can potentially be accepted as proof of English proficiency, and can be accepted instead of IELTS/TOEFL/Cambridge/Pearson etc.
Research degrees (MPhil/PhD)
Competitive applications to our postgraduate research degree programmes will include high overall grades achieved in their Master Degree degree.
