Students starting at HEC Lausanne 2016/2017

Dear fellow members of the English Forum Switzerland,

I'm moving to Switzerland in September this year to start the MScM at HEC Lausanne. I decided to write this thread so people who are also expected to join UNIL later this year (or current students) could get to know each other.

I'm looking forward to be part of UNIL's community and really excited to start my studies! I will be living close to Genève (Nyon), about 20 minutes from Lausanne.

I thought we could also exchange some doubts regarding visa applications, finding a house, health insurance, etc because many of you may have doubts about it.

I actually found a very affordable health insurance called Advisor Swiss Insurance SA

Has anyone heard of it? Is it any good?


Hope to hear from you!

Re: Students starting at HEC Lausanne 2016/2017

hello guys and girls,

i have a problem with my letter of acceptance.I have been accepted for the Master in Finance for 2016-2017 but as they reffer in the letter i have to do a PREPARATORY YEAR.Did anyone else in the group have the same problem with me?I dont know how this year works.Is it a year before the semesters of the Master?

Any information about this PREPARATORY YEAR would be really usefull because this university is my first choice and this year was out of my plans.

Thank you very much!

It will be something like this i guess (this is from last year) http://hec.unil.ch/attachments/msc/p...es/AP_MScF.pdf
so they have you follow some bachelor courses basically.
It's usual in switzerland to have master students from foreign universities take an extra semester, as a filter, one year is kinda long but i don't know the program, it's very competitive and prestigious it seems so it could make sense.
This should all be explained in the admission dossier you received, I'm pretty sure there will also be the contact of the student dean which is the responsible person for this stuff.
I guess it will help you get your french up to speed and be really ready for the master but sure, it's expensive to do an extra year.
