Re: Non-EU postdoc - does anyone else have to pay student fees?

We found this too. Its because its the universities do a deal with the cantonal authorities - if they have postdocs, they're given student permits - its just a bureaucratic thing to make the wheels turn faster, however, it also means you have to pay your 'student' fees.

:-)

(BTW, my wife is in the same situation, this is how i know. At my work, my HR asks if my wife is still a student.... a bit degrading for a postdoc
