Permit in case of ´Berufsbegleitend´studies

Good morning,
I would like to ask one question - I have currently permit for job seekers, until end of June, am EU citizen. I was thinking of starting a psychotherapy course too, (still, have to find a job of course), but my question is - I have recently learned that this course would not get me a student status, because it is a ´berufsbegleitend´course, when you can study alongside working.
If I do not find a job until June, do you think this course would be enough to get me a permit to stay?
I will ask immigration of course, just wanted to post it here as well, in case someone has experience/knowledge about this.

Thanks a lot and have a good day, everyone

How long have you been on a job-seeker's permit? My understanding is if you can still support yourself you just ask for an extension, up to a total of about 18 months. Sorry, no clue on the course.

If psychotherapy is considered part of human medicine then you will not be able to study it here. Medical courses are restricted to Swiss/Lichtenstein nationals and other people who have lived here for at least 5 years.

Unless you also have good backup funds I doubt the course would get you a permit. Depends on what they mean by working as well as studying, but normally students are only allowed to work a maximum of 15 hours a week which would probably not earn you enough to meet any financial requirement the canton sets.

As 3Wishes says, if you have sufficient funding then the initial 3 month job seeker permit can be extended for another 3 months. If the funds are enough that could eventually be extended for up to a year (3 monthly intervals), giving you 15 months in total to search.
