  • If you are a student who loves chocolate, high-end things, and gorgeous landscapes, Switzerland was tailor-made for you. A great plus is the kind population, the great shops and economy, and the international atmosphere, where students and people from all over the world come in search of great education and living conditions. We cannot stress enough how great your decision of studying here is, but we can elaborate on some details and break some of the stereotypes of yodelling and shady banks where mobsters keep their money. Switzerland seems the type of country that excels at everything: from great psychologists like Jung and Piaget, to sportsmen and women, like Federer and Hingis, and even ground-breaking physicists like Einstein - the degrees and fields are top notch. Also, Switzerland is located in the heart of Europe, and, considering all the jokes about how compact the countries are, there’s no wonder you could visit 3 countries in only one afternoon, experiencing the true international experience to the maximum.

    Switzerland has three official languages: German, French, and Italian. The language in which your degree will be taught depends on where you wish to apply to. In addition, most universities also offer a wide range of programmes taught in English. The certificates of proficiency you will need to provide, depending on the language you wish to study, are: DSH, TestDaF, OSD, telc for German; DELF or DALF for French and IELTS or TOEFL for English. If you don’t hold a language certificate, you may be able to take a language test at the university and they can decide if your level is sufficient for you to complete your studies. This option is not available in all universities, so always check with the institution!

    To study in English at one of the universities in Switzerland, you may need a proof of English proficiency. There are several standardised English tests that you can take to proof your English level, such as the PTE (Pearson Test of English), TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language), CAE (Cambridge Advanced English) and IELTS (International English Language Testing System), offered by British Council and IDP. IELTS is the most popular of these tests, with British Council offering more than 500 test locations and being accepted by more than 9,000 organisations world-wide.
