While studying

On this page we provide additional information relevant to your studies, e.g., registration forms, information sheets, downloads of presentations. If you can't find what you're looking for, a link is broken, or an English translation is missing, please contact us and we will try to add the missing parts.

Please note: Electronic submission

Until further notice, all Bachelorʼs and Masterʼs theses, registrations, etc. have to be submitted digitally from your UZH e-mail address to  studies@ifi.uzh.ch


General notes

Disclaimer: No responsibility is taken for the accuracy or completeness of this information.

  • Inform yourself about the respective deadlines (module booking and cancellation, submission of written work, etc.), set reminders in your calendar.
  • Always plan enough buffer time (several days for printing, binding and mailing, at least 1 day for electronic submission – the internet is guaranteed to fail exactly when you want to upload your work 10 seconds before the deadline)
  • Follow the required order of certain modules, e.g., compulsory program of the 3rd and 4th semester > Informatics Internship > Bachelorʼs Thesis
  • Read the corresponding fact sheets promptly when you start a self-study module (fact sheets are revised from time to time; the version currently published on the IfI website applies)

Tutors and Teaching Assistants

Each semester, IfI seeks tutors and teaching assistants for a number of modules:

Fall semester

Spring semester

Administrative process

If you are interested in working as a Tutor or Teaching Assistant and think you have enough knowledge and experience in the respective subject, please send an e-mail to the corresponding contact person with the following information:

Name, matriculation number, semester, any previous experience as Tutor/TA (if so, when and for which subject), further knowledge (e.g., programming), short self-introduction, previous study achievements.

You will then be placed on a list of candidates and contacted by us for a discussion.

Note: You can only enroll as Tutor or TA after you have been confirmed. Enrollment is then carried out by the corresponding contact person with a form (signed by the lecturer) at the department secretary, office 2.B.11, phone 044 635 43 21.
