Study in Switzerland

There is no doubt that Switzerland is one of the most beautiful countries within Europe. Home to more than eight million residents, the country’s world-class universities attract countless prospective students looking for quality higher education.

Switzerland is home to much more than chocolate and cuckoo clocks. Spectacular Alpine mountain ranges are flanked by crystal-clear bodies of water such as Lake Geneva. You will also be in for a treat in regards to the culture to be found here. The history of Switzerland can be traced back to at least 450 BCE and these lands have been occupied ever since. Thanks to influences of nearby nations such as France, Italy and Germany, this country boasts a truly international flavour; the country’s four official languages are German, French, Italian, Romansh (with only some 60,000 speakers today).

You will regularly see many Swiss universities in the world’s top 100 ranked universities - most notably ETH Zurich, EPFL, the University of Zurich and the University of Geneva.
