Do I need a student visa.....?!

Evening all

Having a hard time trying to find the information on the government websites so was hoping someone might be able to give me some help.....

I want to go out to Switzerland to spend 2 or 3 months doing an intensive German course and for the life of me I can't find out whether or not I need to get some sort of visa. I'm from the UK which I assume makes some sort of difference.

Any help greatly appreciated

Cheers

You can stay for up to 3 months as a tourist, no visa required.

Oh right and that covers you for short term studies with no issues? That will be a lot easier than I was expecting

As long as you're not working and here no more than 3 months, you'll have no problem!
