Master's degree in Switzerland?

Hello,

My husband (who is South American) and I are interested in getting master's degrees in the French-speaking part of Switzerland. We've looked at http://www.swissuniversity.ch/ but I am looking for some more "informal" advice on the process.

Is anyone here a foreign student at one of Switzerland's public universities? (we can't afford the more expensive ones).

Are they very competitive to get into? Is the admissions process very rigorous/complicated for foreigners?

My husband wants a degree in Finance and I want one in English lit or French.

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide!

Re: Master's degree in Switzerland?

Thanks! those are great links.

I'm curious if there is a published list of which foreign university bachelor's degrees are recognized by Swiss universities? We don't have the $$ to fly there just for the entrance examinations so we both want to know if our under graduate degrees would be recognized by the universities.

The website says each university makes that decision independently, so I'm assuming we'll have to just contact them directly, but if there's an easier way to find that info I'd be much obliged . Thanks!

I believe there is a charge to evaluate your existing qualifications.
