Lucerne: Education

The University of Lucerne has only existed since 2000 in its present form as a modern institution of tertiary education, though it can trace its roots back as far as 1600. Just one decade after its inauguration, it already enjoys international acclaim. In addition to the University of Lucerne, the University of Applied Sciences and Arts - one of Switzerland's largest universities of applied science - further enhances the Canton's excellent educational facilities.
