Hi. I am looking for a university that teaches in English for my daughter who finishes school in South Africa this year.

Hi, if she is in Geneva, then she can attend Webster University ( www.webster.ch ). It's an American University located in Bellevue, Geneva, two minutes walk from the "Bellevue-Genthod" CFF station. Webster University in Geneva is one of 4 European Campuses of Webster University, St Louis ( www.webster.edu ) in Webster Groves, Missouri. The Geneva campus is very nice.

Re: Looking for English university in Switzerland

Only private universities (or advanced degrees) are in English.

Example: Franklin in Lugano, CHF 70k/year.

Re: Looking for English university in Switzerland

the University of St Gallen offers undergraduate degrees for English speakers.

You can choose from business administration, international affairs and economics at undergraduate level.

The workload is very demanding, yet the reputation of the institution and job chances are exceptional.

Re: Looking for English university in Switzerland

From my experience I can only speak about the University of Zurich. Master courses are mainly in English, with a few exceptions. I believe all bachelor programs are studied in German. In case you are interested in UZH you can find contact information on their website. They are always friendly and professional and will answer within a day or two.

Good American schools are similar as well.

It depends what you are trying to get out of it.

If you can handle a heavy workload independently, don't mind living in St Gallen for a few years, and are interested in going into management, marketing, finance or consulting in the German speaking area then yes, the HSG is a good decision.

Re: Looking for English university in Switzerland

Take a look at Franklin University Switzerland. fus.edu

Founded in 1969 in Lugano (Italian speaking city, just across the northern Italy border) as specifically international in its curriculum and co-curriculum. Small size with dedicated faculty holding Ph.Ds or other terminal degrees from excellent universities around the world. Uses the American model of pedagogy--small classes, highly interactive. Students travel with faculty members each semester for 10-14 days in small groups to some part of the world to explore and interact, guided by a theme--e.g., neo-classical architecture in London, or the classical world in Rome. Travel costs are included in the tuition. It's curriculum is liberal arts with additional tracks in business (international finance, international banking for example) plus international relations. About half or so of the students come from the US, about 15% from Europe, 10% from the Middle East, and the rest from South America and Asia. About 60 countries represented.

It's the only institution of higher education in the world with both USA and Swiss accreditation at the university level.

As a private institution it has no Swiss government subsidies, so the costs are in line with others like it in Europe and the US. However, more than 60% of students are awarded financial assistance.

Which means a lot more expensive than regular universities in Europe

Re: Looking for English university in Switzerland

You are wanting to move to Switzerland.
How come?
Do you have a confirmed job?
Are you marrying a Swiss National?
Otherwise, it will not be that easy.

Languagewise: If you speak dutch or afrikaans, learning Swiss German or High German might be quite easy.
