Student Visas

Student Visa Information for Switzerland

You may require a student visa to enter Switzerland, so please verify the visa requirement for your nationality. Be sure to apply with plenty of time, as it may take 4-12 weeks to obtain your visa. To apply, you will need your letter of acceptance and the receipt of your deposit payment. The Swiss authorities require advance payment of the tuition fees (one or two terms) in some countries in order to process a visa.

Neither the school nor its representatives have any jurisdiction over decisions concerning visa applications. All decisions are made by the relevant Swiss authorities. Visit the official Swiss website for information about Visa requirements.
