Working conditions in the company
Half of your training will consist in developing one (or more) artificial intelligence project(s) in a company. After your online registration, you will have 3 options:
Hold a position in a company that is already a partner of the Master’s programme. You can then finalize your admission.
Hold a position in a company that is not a partner in the Master’s programme but wishes to become one. We will come to your company to determine its development potential in artificial intelligence. The company will become a partner of the Master’s programme. You can then finalize your admission.
You do not hold a position in a company but have a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, or an equivalent field. Register online. If you are eligible, we share with you the offers of our partner companies, to which you apply. If the company is interested, they will contact you for an interview. If both you and the company are interested, you get a position in a partner company. You can then finalize your admission.
You are a company and you don’t have a project or employee eligible for the Master’s programme? We’re here to help. Please don‘t hesitate to contact us: email@example.com

How to register? Follow these three steps
Registration deadline: 30 November 2022
a. Complete the online application form
b. Print out the confirmation of registration
At the end of the form, you will find a document entitled «Confirmation of Registration». This will also be sent to you by e-mail. It must be printed out, dated, signed and sent, together with your documents, before the registration deadline. No application will be processed without these documents.
c. Send in your application
Send a paper copy of all your documents and degrees/diplomas by post, in one envelope, to the following address:
In French: UniDistance Suisse Student services Technopôle 5 3960 Sierre
If parts of your application are missing, we will be unable to process it.
You will then receive either a request for additional information if required, or a provisional confirmation of admission together with an invoice for the fees for the first semester.
This invoice must be paid within the stipulated period.
Final confirmation of your registration will take place as soon as your payment has been received.
Once the invoice has been paid, your admission is complete. You will then receive your documents, student card, access codes, Webmail, etc. and your matriculation number.
As this procedure is relatively lengthy, we strongly encourage you to allow sufficient time for processing your application so that you can receive all your documents and access details before the start of the course.
Withdrawing your application or giving up your studies
You can withdraw your registration but this would have financial consequences. Please refer to Art. 4, Paras. 2 and 3 of the Rules on Fees (in French and in German).
