Swiss matriculation number
Your matriculation number is only required if you wish to register for an MAS programme. When first enrolling at a Swiss university-level institution, every person is issued his or her own matriculation number (student registration number). This eight-digit number (e.g. 15-458-791) is stated on a yellow sticker on the original of the university admission qualifying certificate. If you do not have your own matriculation number, you may note this in the registration process.
Swiss social security number
If you live or work in Switzerland, you will find your Swiss social security number (756 ... ) on your AHV pension card or health insurance card.
Personal photo (jpeg format)
To be able to create your HSLU-Card, we will need a sharp, high-contrast passport-quality picture in which your face is clearly visible. No other people or items must appear in the photo.
- Education certificates
- Audio samples (only required as an attachment for certain continuing education programmes)
- Lists of works (only required as an attachment for certain continuing education programmes)
Various documents will need to be submitted during the application process. These must be in PDF format and uploaded online. Individual PDF files constituting a multi-page document may be uploaded one after the other. The system will automatically merge these individual PDFs into a single document. Please note: deleting one of these individual files will result in the deletion of the entire merged document.
Generating PDF documents
You may scan paper documents and save them as PDF files. Most printers with a scanner feature support the PDF target format.
Open digital documents (such as Word/Excel/PowerPoint) on the computer, navigate to “Save as” and select the .pdf file format.
