How much in total would a uni degree cost in Zurich?

I don't mean costs associated with accommodation, food or travel. Just education costs is what I am interested in. My initial enquiry seems to suggest 4k a year so around 20k in total if it takes 5 years to finish. Does it sound right or am I way off the mark?

Where did you get that number from? Which university? Which field? Which level? and Where are you from are all major factors.

Re: How much in total would a uni degree cost in Zurich?

What type of studies? I give you the info for EPFL:
The tuition is 700CHF/semester. There is an initial tax of 50chf for swiss and 150chf for foreigners.


PS: in France illegal immigrants used to register at University as students to get residence permit. Here goes to registration interview:
- student: i would like to register as student
- clerc: Ok fine. What studies would you like to pursue? Physics, Math, Biology, Economy, litterature ...?
- student: the cheapest one
- clerc:

From a friend who studies at Zurich university (BSc). I am from old EU and have a C permit. I am also eligible to apply for Swiss passport but I want to do that after I enroll. I hear the red passport application process costs less when you are a student.

I am not sure what I will study or if I will study yet.

So 1400CHF a year x 5= 7000. So if you take the worst case scenario then it will still be under my 20k figure? If it is under 20k then I am game.

you still need to qualify for the studies; i think there is a minimum of requirements and a selection process. So what's your major?

Seb, not to be rude but why don't you check the website of the university and programme you want to pursue, don't be lazy!

A prospective student who can't do basic research - good luck with the assessment level.

Oh, no....getting someone else to do your research for you is a great skill for tertiary study...

Asking the right questions, to the right person, can be far more time-efficient than working out the answers yourself...

Is it really 20 thousand francs less expensive when a student? 20K seems to be your magic number....

That's a fact. A one year MBA program at St. Gallen, for example, costs far more than your projected costs for all five years of your undergrad. Without knowing what you want to study and where, we can't give you any more help, I think.

Re: How much in total would a uni degree cost in Zurich?

Is it also true that you can't take away the university costs from your tax forms? What is the logic behind that?
