In Switzerland for education or training


Young Swiss Abroad receive specific information on the topic of education in Switzerland.

Every year, the staff of educationsuisse receive numerous inquiries from Swiss citizens abroad or from their relatives and friends in Switzerland. Most questions concern scholarship opportunities and university studies. However, educationsuisse also receives a wide variety of questions about vocational training, finding an apprenticeship, accommodation, insurance, and the language skills required. It often becomes apparent that due to the rather high cost of living in Switzerland, financing an education can be a problem, but in fact a solution can always be found.

The educationsuisse service offers free advice and support in the search for suitable education or training solutions:

  • Information relating to different educational options such as university studies or vocational training
  • Information relating to specific questions regarding admission requirements, required language skills, deadlines, accommodation, insurances, etc.
  • Individual counselling onsite in Berne or online on the topic of education in Switzerland
  • Vocational and study counselling in cooperation with a professional career counselling provider (fee-based)
  • Assistance in applying for cantonal scholarship and administrative support
  • Financial help (grants/loans) from educationsuisse and private foundations
