University of Lausanne, Actuarial Science

Hello There,

My husband and I will be shifting to Zurich from SF this summer. I wanted to apply for actuarial science masters. I was wondering if anyone has any info about this course being offered in Lausanne.

Also are there any actuarial science courses in Zurich as well?

ETH.

Google. Please.

By the way, do you realise how far Lausanne is from Zürich? It's not a comfortable daily commute (more than two hours each way, main station to main station).

And welcome to EF. Good luck in Switzerland, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Hello Sunij,

You can study actuarial science in Zürich in ETHZ as well.

http://actuaries.ch/

UNfortunately the website is in German and French. I can give you more information, if you tell me what exactly you want to know.

Re: University of Lausanne, Actuarial Science

I would think most, if not all, of the courses will be in either German or French too, so what are your language skills like?

Re: University of Lausanne, Actuarial Science

Well, that solves that problem. Now it's just the commute time from Zurich. If you can find the same course at Zurich university it'll be much easier for you.
