Project Information for Prospective Students – Development of a Coordination Office

Development of a Coordination Office

Our goal

Information for prospective students that is:

  • Tailored to the needs of those who are thinking of studying at UZH and those who will help them to make the right choice.
  • Goal-oriented to support a long-term choice of study programme.

The Executive Board of the University has mandated our project to examine in detail the current information for prospective students (content, channels, cooperation processes, etc.) at UZH. Together with our internal and external partners, we aim to create the conditions that will enable prospective students to choose their ideally suited study programmes. At the same time, we support UZH in the communication with those interested in joining our university community.

Our project team fosters the communication between faculty representatives and UZH prospective students, their families, teachers and study advisors. To achieve this, we approach upper secondary schools, study and career information centers, thereby learning about the motivations of those involved in the decision process. We act as mediators between the UZH programme coordinators and those who seek information about the university offer. Last but not least, through the regular information days for prospective students and the Master’s information events, we provide platforms that present UZH’s diverse range of programmes in a compact and clear manner that is accessible for newcomers.


Have we sparked your interest?  We would like to engage in a dialogue with all those who need study information and those who produce it. If you have any questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.
