Tuition fees for university and university of applied sciences students in Switzerland vary depending on a number of factors, including the educational establishment, the level of study, the student’s nationality and the region in which the university or university of applied sciences is located. Here is some general information on tuition fees in Switzerland:
- Public universities: Public universities in Switzerland, such as the University of Zurich, the University of Geneva, etc., generally have relatively low tuition fees for Swiss students and EU nationals. These fees generally range from a few hundred Swiss francs to a few thousand Swiss francs per academic year. International students from outside the European Union may be subject to higher tuition fees.
- Specialised universities (HES): Tuition fees at specialised universities, which offer more practically oriented and professional courses, can vary depending on the school, the study programme and the level of study. Annual fees can vary from a few thousand Swiss francs to around 10,000 Swiss francs for Swiss students and EU nationals. International students from outside the European Union may be subject to higher tuition fees.
- Private universities: Private universities in Switzerland may have higher tuition fees than public institutions. Fees vary considerably from one private university to another and can reach several tens of thousands of Swiss francs per academic year.
It is important to note that the information provided here is general and may vary from one institution to another. We recommend that you consult the official websites of Swiss higher education institutions and contact the admissions offices directly for precise information on tuition fees for the programme and level of study that interests you.
