Re: Academic 10 Years C Permit

Yeah, per my understanding if you have been on an academic (Ausbildung mit Erwerbstätigkeit) permits the whole time you are unfortunately screwed.

It's interesting though because usually Switzerland imposes a hard limit of 8 years in total that non-EU citizens can live here on such permits. How did you manage to stay for 10 years if you don't mind me asking?

My friend at Uni Bärn got into the same situation after 8 years, he's not on the professorship track but the department wanted to keep him very much so they fought for him and managed to get a 2-year "normal" L work permit which will be enough to bridge the 2 year gap to 10 years and then hopefully he'll get a C if the 2 years on L make the student 8 years count retroactively.
