Situated next to the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne on the shores of the Lake Geneva, the campus is one of the most scenic in the world. The views from the library across the sports fields encompass the lake and the French Alps. On a clear day Mont Blanc can be seen. Grazing sheep on the lakeshores help keep the campus lawn from growing too high!
Students are required to organise their own accommodation in Lausanne. You can find a list of hotels, B&Bs et.c. on the Tourist Information Office website.

How to Apply
Planning early is the best way to ensure you will get the most out of your time abroad.
It is important that you understand the requirements and structure of your course (and major/s) to ensure that you select overseas programs that can transfer back to your degree. To help understand your course structure, you should consult the Faculty Handbook published in the year in which you commenced your course (eg. if you began a Bachelor of Commerce in 2016, you should look at the Business School Undergraduate Handbook from 2016). Pre-2017 Handbooks can be found in the handbook archive.
Example application timeline
1. Select your program > 2. Apply for academic credit > 3. Complete Sydney Abroad application ('Apply now' below) > 4. Apply to host university > 5. Receive academic approval & host acceptance (October/November) > 6. Apply for OS HELP (if eligible), book flights & visa > 7. Fly safe!
Receiving your academic credit approval can take up to 8 weeks – so it’s very important that you submit your application for academic credit to your faculty as soon as soon as you have selected your program of choice.
Note: The Sydney Abroad application requires that you upload a copy of your current passport and the outcome of your academic credit request. If you do not have these available to you now you can save your application and upload them later.
