More than 50,000 students get enrolled in Swiss Universities for Bachelor’s, Master’s and research programmes. Switzerland has been a preferred destination for students to pursue their education in hospitality services. 
Biotechnology, Material Science and Nanotechnology are also quite popular options. Switzerland has 12 doctoral degree-granting research universities offering a wide-range of educational opportunities to international students.


Swiss educational fees are comparatively lower as compared to other European nations and the higher education is publicly funded. In fact, all the doctoral degree-granting research universities are also publicly funded. 

University of Geneva, University of Bern, University of St. Gallen and University of Lausanne are popular with international students and are very demanding in time and require dedication. As a result, there is not much time for working along with studies.
