Interested in a Masters programme in Switzerland?

Switzerland has a great reputation for knowledge and research. Swiss universities share a drive for high-quality teaching and research and an ambition for excellence. Especially if you are interested in banking and business, Switzerland can be the perfect place for your postgraduate study abroad. The University of St. Gallen is probably the most renowned management school in Europe and home to the future leadership elite.

As Switzerland has plenty of regions with different mother tongues, courses at Swiss higher education institutions are also taught in a variety of languages, including German, French, Italian and English. Speaking and studying in one or even more of these languages can be a huge advantage for your future career and can help you climb the job ladder.

You don’t need to worry about the international currency of a Master’s degree from a Swiss institution. Due to the Bologna Process, most European degrees are accepted worldwide. There may be a few exceptions, however, so please check with your chosen university.

The costs of studying in Switzerland

Tuition fees at Swiss higher education institutions are not standardized. Each university has its own system, which is why annual fees can vary between €800 and €6,500. Some universities impose extra fees for non-EU students.

Switzerland: The land of neutrality?

The Swiss landscape is anything but neutral. Switzerland has a lot to offer when it comes to recreational activities: skiing in the Alps, hiking through the countryside or visiting some of the Swiss sights. You can also spend your time trying out original Swiss chocolate or shopping for a real cuckoo clock.

The Swiss way of life varies depending on the area you live in. Switzerland combines traditions and cultures from Germany, Italy and France. In the south, you find a Mediterranean lifestyle, whereas Swiss life in the north has a German touch. Switzerland is a small country with a wide range of cultures.
