The Location

Switzerland has a great deal to offer: cultural diversity, multilingualism, stunning scenery and, of course, its people. There are now approximately 8.1 million people living in Switzerland, speaking four official languages: German, French, Italian and Romansh. Despite the fact that Switzerland lacks natural resources and that the Swiss economy is highly dependent on exports, its economic situation has been very stable over the years; its GDP per inhabitant is higher than in most industrialized countries. The Swiss population on the whole enjoys a high level of living and Switzerland deserves its reputation of high-quality standards and services in all sectors (health, industry, public transport, education, etc.).

Student Life

Studying in Zurich means living in Switzerland's vibrant and exciting cultural capital, which is far more than a business and finance center. Known as the "little big city", Zurich offers all the benefits of city life and at the same time an attractive recreation area with its stunningly beautiful lake and nearby mountains.
