About universities in Switzerland

Switzerland is a proud country with a long-standing tradition of educational excellence.  From its undergraduate, Masters and PhD programs to its extensive vocational training, the Swiss people, perhaps like no other country in the world, place a high priority on advanced education as a tool for both self improvement and the advancement of society.

Those who choose to study in Switzerland will be taking a major step towards success and innovation.  As a country whose primary resource is knowledge and research, Switzerland welcomes the presence of foreign students and acknowledges their role in the country’s ongoing pursuit of academic excellence and ground breaking research—research that benefits not just the people of Switzerland but the world as a whole.  A testament to this is the large percentage of international students in relation to the total enrollment at Swiss universities.  Currently, foreign students account for nearly 22 percent of the total university enrollment.

Unlike public universities in other countries, whose funding has continued to suffer as the global recession drags on, Swiss universities are some of the most generously funded in the world, largely due to a domestic policy that demands it.  This massive state commitment to education and research has made Switzerland a shining example of the power of education and what it can accomplish.  Not only does the country own the highest number of patents as compared to all other European countries, it can also take pride in having the most per capita Nobel Prize winners in the world.

Higher Education in Switzerland

The higher education system in Switzerland consists of undergraduate, Masters and PhD programs, split between the 10 cantonal universities in the country, the 2 state sponsored technology institutes, the career-oriented universities of applied sciences and the universities of teacher education.  Each offers their own unique approach to teaching and learning, which constantly includes a strong focus on new research.  As a result, Switzerland and its people are able to anticipate economical, technological and political change, and adapt quickly to meet these new challenges.

Master Degrees

Pursuing a Masters Degree in Switzerland, regardless of the field of study, place students on the precipice of innovation and positive change.  Switzerland is celebrated internationally for its top-notch graduate facilities and full access to a wide variety of resources.  Programs are offered in every major field of study, and in a number of different languages, all aimed at attracting the finest students from around the world to study and perform research in their respective fields, and ultimately share what they’ve learned and discovered with the rest of the world.

Vocational Education

Despite its colossal financial, political and intellectual support for its universities, Switzerland also offers programs for career-minded individuals who want to enter into, or move up in a particular field.  Swiss vocational schools offer courses in the theory and practical application of a variety of career fields, such as business management, health care and social work.  Students can also opt to take one of two proficiency exams the country offers at any point during their studies:  Switzerland’s Certificate of Proficiency Exam and the more advanced—and more difficult—Advanced Vocational Education Examination.
