Exchange studies

EPFL students have the opportunity to study a year abroad in third year, and may also leave for their Master’s thesis. More information can be found on the web page. Administrative procedures for a third year on exchange are carried out during second year by the student. The SAE will contact all second year students in due time, with all necessary information.

Missing credits

The 3rd year study students who has not passed all the required credits (not more than 10 missing credits) during the exchange year can be conditionally admitted in the Master.

For the Master thesis abroad

You will be allowed to start the Master thesis if you carried out the mandatory engineering internship and you are missing no more than 8 credits to complete your master cycle. These credits can be obtained in parallel to the Master thesis (with the agreement of your supervisors) or during the semester following the Master thesis.

The Master thesis abroad must be followed by an academic member (Prof. and MER) at SMX
