Changing Schools while on L (Student) Permit

Hi All -
Any help would be greatly appreciated, as I have searched the forums and Google, and cannot find the answer!!!
I'm a Non-EU citizen and have arrived in Zurich to study german. I was issued an L-permit valid for 6 months, with a possible extension. In the meantime, I was also applying to swiss universities and was accepted for a Masters program at a swiss university, which starts in a month.
Will I be able to start the University in a month on the same L-permit, or do I have to leave the country and re-apply for a Visum??

Thank you so much everybody!!!
Valerie

I think you can stay here. Your new school will apply a B student permit for you. My friend he has also L permit for German course, after that he was accepted by Zurich apply science Uni which also starts next month. Good luck!

My university was not very helpful and said that they "do not assist with permits"... After all the research that i've done, the conclusion is I have to leave Zurich and move to the canton of Neuchatel which should give me the right permit!

1valeria--

Could you elaborate as to what type of German course you were issued an L Permit for? I just spoke with the cantonal migration office in Luzern and the woman I was on the phone with told me it was not possible to receive a permit for a German language course....?

Did you request the permit in your home country or while you were in Switzerland? I'm trying to figure out whether the woman was just having a bad day or what.

Thanks!

Hi -
It is a full time german course in Zurich. I was issued the permit in my home country.
