Study in Switzerland

swiss flag

Switzerland is known for its scenic and wonderous natural beauty, but most student’s may not think of studying or continuing their higher education here. And they should! The country has some of the best medical universities in the world, along with some of the most high-tech campuses available. We will explore the student tuition cost as well as what traditional or average living accommodation costs look like. We will also cover what languages are spoken throughout the country.

Cost of Living for Students

Now, the cost of living in Switzerland does come down to what the student likes to do for daily activities. Why? Because there are so many recreational activities available in Switzerland, it may feel a bit overwhelming to some. But this does mean that students need to budget accordingly.

Students are advised to keep a near $2,000 USD for all monthly expenses. Because Switzerland is a richer country that it’s European neighbors, that means the currency will be higher than most as well.

Tuition Cost and Expectance

Students can expect the tuition cost to average between (for public universities for both Bachelor’s – Master’s programs) 500 – 4,000 EUR per year. This means the average semester would be anywhere from 300 – 1,000 EUR per year. The program a student picks will greatly decide how much tuition cost will accumulate to as a total amount.

Languages Spoken in Switzerland

What languages are spoken in Switzerland? Many students will be happy to know that German, Romansh, French, Italian, Swiss, and English are often spoken throughout the country. We do highly encourage students to learn the native language of the country they will chose to study in for two factors: One this is highly respectful of the student to take it upon themselves to learn another language and it will help the transition from one country to another. Secondly, learning another language can open many opportunities that a student may otherwise not have experienced before.
