Mandatory certificate for getting work permit

Hey,

I am a non-EU citizen studying in India. I found an internship in Olten and my employer is willing to apply for the work permit for me.
In order to get the work permit, I need a letter from my university which states that an internship is compulsory for my studies. The problem is that my internship isn't compulsory and my university will not issue such a letter for me. Is it still possible for me to get the work permit or what else can be done?

Thank you very much for help.

No. It's not. Because you can only get a work permit for the internship if an internship is compulsory. And it isn't compulsory. So you can't get one.

Would it be fine if they write that it is part of my undergraduate program and I required to do it?

You already answered your own question.

If they were to write that you were required to do it, they would be telling an untruth. Lying on behalf of someone so that they can get a work permit is a serious, probably criminal, offence. When it was found out, you would be deported and barred from entering the country for ten years.

Is this really so hard to understand?

Rule number one do not ask other people to lie for you, especially when they are people you many have to rely on in future.

Rule number two do not assume the authorities are stupid, the will check your college course on the university website - if there is no mention the required internship, you're toast!

And finally remember that the Swiss authorise have the power to bar you from entering the entire Schengen area not just Switzerland if they find out that you have been messing them around on the visa application
