What are the universities with high chance of addmissions for Information Technology

Hello everyone,
I searched in this forum for some information about the chances of being approved in switzerland universities and I learned alot from the previous questions. So I'm a software Engineering undergraduate Algerian student in Malaysia (graduation july 2018) with 3 years program and planning to persue my masters degree in switzerland, so far my CGPA is above 3.5/4. Also I speak english en french fluently. my questions are:

1. Which universities have the highest chances of approval based on my results?

2. Is there any chance to get a scholarship based on my results?

3. What's the amount of money that I need to have in my bank account in order to enter switzerland? cause I found in https://sae.epfl.ch/visa-help#faq-634656 that it's 2000CHF/month but they didn't specify for how many months and by that I mean the total amount.

4. Is it prohibited to get a part-time job in the first 6 months in switzerland for foreign students?

Thanks in advance

Re: What are the universities with high chance of addmissions for Information Technol

Nearly all your questions are answered on the EPFL website.

2. https://sae.epfl.ch/grants

3. "Proof of sufficient means

You have to prove that you have 2000.- CHF/month to live in Switzerland.

Generally embassies/consulates request this amount for a whole academic year. As the exact amount is given by embassies/consulates, please contact them or check their website for more information.

Proofs:
Bank statement(s) (of one or several accounts): If the account(s) is not your's, ask the account holder(s) to sign a letter confirming that he/she will support you during your studies. Or use this form (in french only). The date when the money has been put on the account does not matter.
Scholarship attestation: If the scholarship is lower than 2000.- CHF/month, you will have to prove that you have sufficient means to cover the difference.

You will have to ask for an extension of your residence permit on a yearly basis and prove again that you have 2000.- CHF/month, for at least six months."

https://sae.epfl.ch/visa-help#faq-634656

4. "Non-european students

Autorisation given only 6 months after their arrival in Switzerland.

Exception is given to student assistants employed in research in connection with their field of study according to this EPFL directive, article 9."

https://sae.epfl.ch/work-permit

As for 1. only the university itself can tell you when you apply.

Re: What are the universities with high chance of addmissions for Information Technol

Since you speak good french, I suggest that you Google "master informatique suisse romande" and have a look at the links. EPFL is certainly the hardest to get into. Probably the easiest is the HES-SO, but Sion is really "le trou du cul du monde" = the end of the world .
