* The majority of ETH Zurich taught postgraduates are graduates of ETH's own bachelor's programmes who are normally allowed to progress on to Master's study without going through the application process. The numbers shown here represent the graduates of other universities applying to study at ETH.

ETH undergraduate admissions are not competitive. Some international students may be required to pass an entrance exam. Undergraduate courses are generally taught in German, hence a proof of language proficiency is required.

Data sources
Legend

The acceptance rate, or offer rate, represents the fraction of applicants who received an offer. Note that unlike some other sources, we do not distinguish between the offer rate and acceptance rate.
The acceptances generally indicate the number of offer holders who accepted the offer and fulfilled its conditions. For some universities, however, it denotes the number of applicants who accepted the offer, regardless of whether they subsequently met its conditions.

Data Reliability

Unless otherwise noted, the data presented comes from the universities and is therefore reliable. However, some of the differences between years and/or courses may be due to different counting methodologies or data gathering errors. This may especially be the case if there is a sharp difference from year to year. If the data does not look right, click the "Report a problem" button located near the top of the page.
