An exceptional case
the heart of the Alps and Europe, Switzerland is an island apart:
it is at the same time a European exception and a condensed Europe.
A mix of three cultures, German, French and Italian, Switzerland
offers to students the world over the advantage of discovering
the old continent at its best and without traveling around! 90,000
foreign students from all over the world, making up 20% of the
student population of the country, have put on their mountain-climbing
boots to access a Swiss education, and reach the heights
"Quality" is the key word. The quality of education and the quality
of life in Switzerland is known throughout the world. The natural
environment is exceptional and offers the possibility of participating
in all kinds of outdoor sports like skiing, hiking, and water
sports. The urban environment needs no advertising: the neatness,
cultural richness of cities like Zurich and Geneva, and the high
quality of Swiss public services are sufficient praise.
Nevertheless, from the financial point of view or the immigration
laws, access to Switzerland is limited.
