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.
No deal is done with the authorities. The universities simply enrol people as students and as such they get an easier route to a permit. These are the rules and nothing special is done for universities .
