Master's Programs

You have the choice between a consecutive and a specialized Master's program. The latter are also available as a Fast track program. The language of tuition is mainly English.

Consecutive Master's programs (mono and major)

If you have a UZH Bachelor of Science or equivalent degree in the same field, you qualify to enroll in our consecutive Master's program. We have an extremely wide range of programs at Master's level (graduate studies).

Specialized Master's programs (mono and major)

Our specialized Master's programs (mono and major) are available only at the Master's level and not at the Bachelor's level. Admission to these Master's programs is by written application ("sur dossier"). If you have any questions about the subject-specific requirements for any of these programs, please contact the relevant student advisory service.

Fast Track Master's programs (mono and major)

Fast track programs are aimed at outstanding students who are considering an academic career and would like to conduct research for their doctoral thesis while still studying for their Master's degree. These programs have their own application and admission procedure. Each specialized Master's degree program can also be taken as a fast track program.
