Then you will probably enjoy listening to Frédéric’s and Nency’s experiences!



Convinced? Then make sure to prepare your application by mid-December or mid-April!

Applications can be filled online from mid-November to the 15th of December, or from the 16th of December to the 15th of April. Chances to get a private foundation’s scholarship increase for applications sent by the 15th of December.

Applicants are chosen by a committee on the basis of a complete application file. There is no need to  find a supervisor beforehand.



We, as the Section of Chemistry and Chemical engineering, are not able to give you any advice on your eligibilty and your chances of getting accepted. You have to go through the complete registration process for your application to be thoroughly considered by our specialists.

The courses in the master’s programme are all given in English but a basic knowledge of French (B2) is recommended.

There are 2 deadlines per year for applications: 15/12 and 15/04. No applications can be considered after these deadlines.

EPFL does not grant scholarships to start studying. However, private foundations do support excellent candidates and those are selected by the section. In order to be considered for those, please make sure to apply during the first round of applications.

Part-time studies are not conceivable in our programmes for the time running. They can only be followed full-time and no arrangements can be made.


We cannot answer any questions in regards to applications directly. For more information on the registration process, please refer to the Student services.
