The answer can be found in the SEM directive:

As you see, although the 30 years age limit is not set in law, it is not just a SEM guideline, but based on a federal court ruling.

In addition there is a list of naughty countries: https://www.sem.admin.ch/dam/data/se...dierende-f.pdf
Nationals from those countries have misused their visa, overstayed, or did not return to their home country at the end of the training. Now all from those countries are subject to special scrutiny.

Furthermore, the authorities have a very simple but ever so compelling reason to deny a visa: Why studying in the very expensive Switzerland, when you can get the same or better education in a country were living and overall cost is so much lower?
Thanks for sharing, my country of Nationality isn't among the listed countries
