Age-limit on student visa?
I'm new to the forum and look forward to learning more about Switzerland through everyone's posts!
I do have a question I was hoping for some guidance on:
I recently applied for a student visa in Switzerland (Fribourg). I would like to do research in the country for my graduate degree, and decided the student visa route was the most sensible one, considering that I am a student in the U.S.
I received a letter from the authorities which stated that, normally, student visas are not issued to applicants age 30 and above who already have advanced degrees, or education.
Any idea or advice as to what I should do in this situation? I was not aware that student visas are age-restricted in this way. I can continue with my application, and they are still requesting a letter of motivation.
Any thoughts, or experiences with student visas would be helpful, and greatly appreciated!
