Elite sport and studies

The University of Lucerne advises and assists recognised elite athletes with issues relating to sport and studies.

No compromises are permitted when it comes to study achievement. However, there are opportunities to introduce flexibility, for example in the form of exemptions for examination dates or the maximum duration of studies.

The widely differing needs require individual planning. Elite athletes can apply to the faculty advisors listed below with a justified request enclosing the Swiss Olympic Card and/or squad confirmation from the relevant sports association.

Further information is available in German, in particular:
