Reactivate your application

If you wish to reactivate your application the following semester or year, use the "guide" to check the enrollment conditions and application deadlines and then follow the procedure given below .

  • Applications for the AUTUMN semester (September - January) open in January.
  • Applications for the SPRING semester (February - August) open mid-September.

Important : Applications are only kept on file for one year. If you wish to reactivate your application more than one year after applying the first time, you will to follow the same procedure as done initially, up to and including submission of your completed file (i.e. re-submit all required elements) as your application will not have been kept on file.

Procedure

  1. Once again, fill out the enrollment application form online. If possible, use the same email address and password as for your previous enrollment application. If you have forgotten your password, click on "J'ai perdu mon mot de passe"; if you are not sure which email address you used:
    • send us a message (from any email address) to admissions.unige.ch indicating that you no longer remember which email address you used for your enrollment application and add a scanned copy of your passeport/ID
  2. Pay the registration fee online; failure to do so will result in your application not being processed
  3. Print out two copies of the form, then date and sign them
  4. Add a hand-written note to both forms that you are requesting the reactivation of your application
  5. Update your application file and include the following :
  • an updated CV that specifies what you have done during the semester or year that has passed;
  • if you have completed your secondary studies in the meantime: copies of your diploma and transcripts (all documents from countries/states that have neither signed nor ratified the Lisbon Convention must be certified true copies)
  • if you have completed your University studies in the meantime:
    • copies of your diploma and transcripts (all documents from countries/states that have neither signed nor ratified the Lisbon Convention must be certified true copies)
    • the certificate (not the letter) of exmatriculation if you have completed studies in a Swiss university or institution of higher education
  • if you have started University studies in the meantime: copies of your diploma and transcripts (all documents from countries/states that have neither signed nor ratified the Lisbon Convention must be certified true copies)
  • (optional) if you are applying for a bachelor’s degree program other than the one for which you were previously admitted, a completed equivalency request file
  • if you are applying for a master’s degree program other than the one for which you were previously admitted, a completed master’s degree program application file

IMPORTANT: if you are applying for a programme or to a faculty/school requiring a specific exam or admission procedure, you will have to pass the exam again or follow the ad hoc procedure again.
