The Swiss government offers scholarships to foreign students through its federal scholarship programme. The scholarships cover tuition fees, living expenses and travel costs for foreign students in Switzerland. Applications must be submitted to the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students.

Look for scholarships offered by universities

Swiss universities often offer scholarships to foreign students. Scholarships are generally based on academic merit, financial need or specific research in a field of study. Students should contact the university directly for information on available scholarships.

Look for scholarships offered by private organisations and foundations

Many Swiss private organisations and foundations also offer scholarships to foreign students. Scholarships are often specific to a field of study or nationality. Students should search for suitable organisations and foundations and apply directly to them.

Explore student loans

International students can also explore student loan options to finance their studies in Switzerland. Student loans may be offered by Swiss banks or private organisations. Students must be prepared to repay the loans with interest after completing their studies.





It is important to note that the application process and selection criteria vary for each scholarship. Students should follow the application instructions and deadlines carefully to maximise their chances of success.
