*ETH Zurich requires the originals of your matriculation certificate - certified / notarized copies will not be accepted! Swiss Universities require the original matriculation certificate in order to assign an individual Swiss matriculation number to each new student. This number (a tiny yellow sticker) has to be attached to the matriculation certificate. All original documents will be returned during the autumn semester. If you fail the entrance examination, you may pick up your original documents from the Admissions Office immediately after publication of the exam results.
