 SWITZERLAND

An exceptional case

At 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.
