Orientation tools

Choosing a field of study is an impactful decision. Here are several orientation tools to guide you in your choice.

Orientation tools

Information days

You will be able to attend conferences about each EPFL program and meet current students. Prepare this event by gathering information about the study programs you are interested in on this website. During the information days, you will then have the chance to ask all your questions, practical and academic, to students and staff.

Forums and information sessions

During these events, you will have the opportunity to discuss the different possibilities of academic studies with EPFL representatives.

Online orientation tools

In addition to the different information and awareness events you may attend, orientation tools can also help you make an informed decision according to your interests and ambitions.

General recommendations

  • Online information: visit www.orientation.ch
  • Brochures and guidance: contact a guidance counsellor for further information or a personal guidance meeting
  • Orientation events: don’t miss the events that are organized by many high schools or Cantons
  • Internships: complete interships that will give you insight into the reality of the professions

And don’t forget: we are best at what interests us most!

Follow your interests and avoid making a choice based on the economic situation: no one can predict the state of the economy by the end of your studies.
