Re: Looking for English university in Switzerland

Take a look at Franklin University Switzerland.

Founded in 1969 in Lugano (Italian speaking city, just across the northern Italy border) as specifically international in its curriculum and co-curriculum. Small size with dedicated faculty holding Ph.Ds or other terminal degrees from excellent universities around the world. Uses the American model of pedagogy--small classes, highly interactive. Students travel with faculty members each semester for 10-14 days in small groups to some part of the world to explore and interact, guided by a theme--e.g., neo-classical architecture in London, or the classical world in Rome. Travel costs are included in the tuition. It's curriculum is liberal arts with additional tracks in business (international finance, international banking for example) plus international relations. About half or so of the students come from the US, about 15% from Europe, 10% from the Middle East, and the rest from South America and Asia. About 60 countries represented.

It's the only institution of higher education in the world with both USA and Swiss accreditation at the university level.

As a private institution it has no Swiss government subsidies, so the costs are in line with others like it in Europe and the US. However, more than 60% of students are awarded financial assistance.
