Academic Calendars

Registration deadlines

Generally, the steps above must be taken as soon as possible, as - in certain countries - administrative requests may take several months (visa requests, legalization of diplomas, etc). The completed registration request must arrive at the Academic Service by:

  • November 30 to be registered in the spring semester
  • April 30 to be registered in the fall semester
  • February 15 for medecine (CRUS)

Note: Bachelor degree candidates taking the Fribourg exam must send their registration dossier earlier (see portail futur étudiant in French).

It is recommended that students begin their studies in the fall semester. For certain courses, admission is only possible in the falll semester.
