To determine Swiss residency status per the Graduate Institute’s regulations, proof of residency at the time of application will be requested in May-June 2017. To qualify:
- Holders of a Swiss passport must provide a Swiss tax declaration for the relevant period;
- Non-Swiss nationals must provide a valid Swiss residence permit for the relevant period.


Tuition balances are adjusted for students who receive financial aid in the form of tuition reduction.

Once your 1st semester tuition fees paid, your certificate of registration will become available on "Campus" under "Reporting". This certificate will be required for your residence permit application.

 

Getting your scholarship


Scholarships are disbursed in ten instalments, at the beginning of every month, from September to June.

The first monthly disbursement is made in cash via a designated local bank:

  1. Obtain your student card;
  2. Present your student card and scholarship letter to the Institute’s Accounting Service to receive a scholarship disbursement letter;
  3. Show your scholarship disbursement letter at the designated bank to obtain your first scholarship instalment.

Subsequent disbursements are made every first working day of the month, by bank transfer.
 

If you have been granted a CHF 18,000 scholarship, you will receive ten instalments of CHF 1,800.
If you have been granted a CHF 9,000 scholarship, you will receive ten instalments of CHF 900.


Tuition reduction, on the other hand, is deducted directly from tuition invoices.
