You now have a chance to earn this degree, as EPFL Excellence Fellowships have now been announced to avail. If you hold a Bachelor’s degree from a university (or equivalent) in a field related to EPFL curricula, you are eligible to apply to one of the EPFL Masters programs. The selection procedure will be done on the basis of the evaluation of the academic records of the students. The selection of the candidates will be done by the fellowship committee, comprising members of the EPFL sections, a representative of the Vice-Presidency for Education and representatives from other school services. The fellowships will be managed by the Student Affairs (SAE) located in the BP building.
