EPFL-EDNE courses: LNDS PhD students can basically attend most courses of the EPFL PhD program in neuroscience (EDNE). Please write to the EDNE coordinator from your work mail address (with the LN coordinator in copy) to inquire about free slots in courses, . You will then have to fill the “external auditor form” and send it to “cours-edoc@epfl.ch” together with a scan of your PhD student card.

Please respect these registration rules, otherwise your demand cannot be processed! Please send the EPFL credit transcript you will receive to the LNDS coordinator for credit validation. 

Other EPFL PhD courses: Please contact the LNDS coordinator to ask for credit validation before choosing a given course, and to be re-directed to the EPFL program coordinator in charge. If your wish can be granted, please fill the “external auditor form” and send it to “cours-edoc@epfl.ch” together with a scan of your PhD student card.
