Hi, I wanted to ask you a question since you said that you are a new master's student in Switzerland. I'm a Chemistry student with a B.Sc. degree from a Canadian University, and now I am seeking admissions to the M.Sc. program in a Swiss University. They dont seem to give a lot of detail about the nature of admission requirements - what sort of class standing or average grade is required for admission?
Although I graduated from one of the best schools in the country, I hold a B average (bordering B+) and I wasn't able to gain admission into any of the top 3 schools in Canada or US. I have a very good background in research experience, having worked in two labs so far.
Many of the swiss M.Sc. programs seem to say the entry requirement is fulfillment of a Bachelor's degree with equivalent 180 ECTS credits. I calculated and it turns out I have about 215 ECTS credits from my canadian B.Sc. Is admission very competitive for Swiss grad schools (in science, more specifically, if you know)? I get the impression (from what is shown on their websites) that they are ready to accept as long as the degree is recognized and fulfills the credit requirements. I understand ETH Zurich and Lusanne are the top schools there, but I am more interested in other schools like Basel, Geneva, Bern, Fribourg etc. In your honest opinion do you think a B average (would be on the border of upper and lower second class honours in UK) with sufficient research background can gain me admission to these Swiss grad programs?? Thanks in advance for your time!
