Re: School fees in Switzerland

Current university fees at Bern are 1,300 chf per year. Google the university and check from there.

Re: School fees in Switzerland

Hi,

There is a breakdown of university fees per year here.

Might that be helpful?

Re: School fees in Switzerland

It's 1300.- for the year in Vaud as well. Note that if you're a foreign student or you live in another canton it's much more expensive.

Re: School fees in Switzerland

Depending on the canton, usually it is between 500-700CHF per semester for a public university. However, the University of Lugano is more expensive, it is 2000sfr per semester for a Swiss/EU citizen, the first 2years, if I am not wrong.

Thats one of those incredible bargains in CH, people usually complain it's so much cheaper in the USA.
May I ask what a university is in the states? 10k, 20K? a year.

Re: School fees in Switzerland

The price is right, but you still have to get accepted in and I am not sure what the requirements for acceptance are

Double that for anything worthwhile (including where I went).

Much less back when.

Wow we need to start a thread about ridiculous prices of American Universities, so a degree will cost 100k USD? what a rip off.

Re: School fees in Switzerland

Definitely one of the driving factors to come study here for my masters.
Back in Canada my bachelors cost me $4K in total, here my two years will be 2800 francs where a similar program in Canada for my studies would have cost me just over $50000 for the two years.

My friend's kid is at a small private school in upstate New York. 35K a year just tuition. He pays another 15K to live on campus. He's not that smart.

Who? Your friend or the kid?


Anyway, the strange folks from Franklin Colledge and Montagnola school pay similar fees, I think ... I assume I wanted to say.

My daughter wants to start vet school in Zurich next year, so it's good to know about the costs!
