Rules/laws surrounding intern payment in Switzerland


I'm waiting to hear back from a major international company for a 6 month internship post. I'm really more interested in getting the experience than making riches initially, so I have no issues with an internship in principle.

I was just wondering if anyone else had done an internship, and if so what was the wage? I understand there are slightly more rigorous rules around paying interns over here than back home in the UK. I have a decent wedge of savings, so all I would really be looking for the internship wages to cover would be my rent, health insurance and monthly travel to Zug (from Zurich) where the intership is. This would probably come - monthly - to about 1500 CHF.

Does that seem like a reasonable internship wage, or is the average higher/lower than that?

All info/1st hand experience of internships in Switzerland would be much appreciated.
