Can I study in switzerland with L dependent WP

Hi
I will be soon arriving in switzerland. Since my husband is being given a L work permit, I being the dependent shall hold the same L dependent permit. However after arrival I am interested in pursuing masters from Swiss and hence needed to understand the following :
1)Will I be allowed to study with this visa type ?
2) If no, is it possible to convert a dependent visa to student visa?

Thanks in advance

I think that you do not need to convert an L work permit into a B student permit. Why:

1. It is the university involved which should do that for you

2. You can apply to your university in Switzerland regardless whether you have an L permit or not.

The L permit does not play a role in your study equation therefore and is just a neutral bystander It would in no way affect applying to university.

Re: Can I study in switzerland with L dependent WP

Hi,
My wife received the admission letter from the university. however, we have no clue what to do? on the other hand, when checked with immigration office, they told if husband has to leave the country for any reason, wife also should leave irrespective whether studying or not. even if she is not going to complete course by then.

So anyone has any idea how to crack this barrier?

Appreciate your help.

Can your wife get a student permit, independent of yours?

Are you planning on leaving Switzerland before she finishes her masters? If not, she should just study on her L-permit.

No need for another permit (student permit) for your wife if she already has one (even an L). At least for the time being.
