Kmorr has no particular reputation at present
Is working a part time job enough to get buy as a student in Zurich

Hello. In Zurich would working a part time job along side university be possible. If so, how much would I have to make a month? Along side this I would need to fund tuition fees and a studio apartment.

Any advise would be much appreciated.

Who can say what it is in 3 years time?? You can only work 15 hours, you are here to study, right?


And you need to have the cash before you get accepted.


Read the forum, plenty of threads on this...

What roegner said. You have to prove you have the necessary funds to get a student permit here so you couldn't count on having a part time job to make up the difference. You've got to have that CHF20,000+ already in an account at a bank that has a branch in Switzerland as part of the student permit application process. Plus non-EU nationals are not allowed to work for the first six months of their course.

You can see a budget breakdown in the second link in Post 13 on your other thread.

Part-time work can be paid really poorly, like Fr. 15 per hour, up to quite well if you already have a skill/experience, perhaps up to Fr. 25 or if you get really lucky Fr. 35.

I know it's an old thread, but i just want to add sth for future readers. If you find a job at the university, it's CHF 30 per hour with a BA degree.
