Student Bank accounts

Hi everyone!

I will start a Master programme in Autumn Semester 2016 at the ETH. I have a scholarship from my country, but I don't know anything about bank accounts in Switzerland. Is there any possibility of obtaining a Switzerland bank account (for a foreign student) without being in Zürich?

Thanks -

Welcome to the forum. Well, no, not before you arrive in Switzerland I'm afraid. Once you have your permit then you'll be able to open an account here, but not before.

Your question is answered in pages 25-26 in this pdf of your future university.

Student accounts have an age limit, so you will need to check if you are eligible.
