    Scholarships 2012/2013

    Switzerland is offering a limited number of university scholarships to Tanzanian students for the academic year 2012/2013 for studies at one of Switzerland's 10 Universities and 2 Federal Institutes of Technology. The documents for the application are available for download:

    1. Application guidelines
    2. Application form
    3. Medical certificate
    The university scholarships are intended for post-graduate students only, with as special emphasis put on Research Fellowships. Applicants who already hold a Master degree and wish to undertake a second (or 3rd) Master degree are not considered a priority for the Swiss Government Scholarships. Multiplying the Master degrees will not be encouraged by the Federal Commission for Scholarships (FCS). Besides, please be aware that for Master programs, the FCS does not pay for Master tuition fees.

    Candidates should not be older than 35 years (i.e. born after 1 January 1977).

    Before applying, you must find out whether your planned study program or research project can be carried out at the university concerned. For Research fellowships, the applicant must contact a Professor in Switzerland willing to supervise his research project. A copy of this contact must imperatively be part of the application package. Should this contact not be made, the Swiss Embassy will reject the candidature. For Master programs, the applicant must, at the same time he applies for the Swiss Government Scholarship, apply for the chosen Master program. The two procedures are separate ones and the applicant must undertake both procedures.

    For Master programs, the applicant has to be proficient in the teaching language in order to be eligible for a Swiss Government Scholarship and must provide the relevant language certificate with the application package. If the teaching language at your chosen university in Switzerland is English, and you have completed your bachelor cursus in English, a letter from the university confirming this will be sufficient.

    It is essential that you fill in the application forms electronically and print them out to attach to your file. Forms filled in by hand will not be accepted.

    Each application form and all the annexed documents required have to be sent in triplicate in the given order (see p. 12 of Application Guidelines). The complete application files should be submitted to the Embassy not later than 29 December 2011.

    All documents which are not in English, German or French must be accompanied by certified translations in one of these 3 languages.

    Important: Please carefully read the Application guidelines. These guidelines outline all the important information and requirements to prepare a good application.

    Applications will not be taken into consideration if they are in one of the following situations:

    • The application is incomplete, does not respect the guidelines or is badly prepared
    • The applicant is older than 35 (born prior to 1.1.1977)
    • Applications for 2 or more Universities. Applicants must apply for only 1 University
    • The applicant is already attending the first year of a Master Program in one of the Swiss Universities. Students already embarked in a Master program in one of the Swiss Universities are not eligible for a Swiss Government Scholarship.
    • Language certificate (or letter from the university confirming proficiency in English) is missing
    • The applicant is required to attend a complementary program or to catch up ECTS credits in order to comply with the University requirements
    For more specific information, kindly consult the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) in the section on the right.
