I am desperate for informations!

Hello! I am a non-EU citizen, almost 19 years old and a university student ( I speak english and french ). My dad lives in Switzerland ( Lausanne) and has a permit C and he wants to bring me there to study ( bachelor ). Can I get any informations about this matter ? And if anyone had been in a similar situation ? Thank you.

I'm afraid that this isn't possible for children aged over 18.

Then he has to be very quick.

And OP could try himself to get a permit for a study.

Family reunification not possible..... but you could still apply for a student visa/permit independent of your dad.

Re: I am desperate for informations!

To study here you need to be accepted by a university, then you (not your dad) have to apply for a student's permit. For this you'll need to write a motivation letter and also provide proof that you have the necessary funding to support yourself while you study - around CHF23,500 a year.

If the Swiss authorities grant you a study permit then you'll need to apply for a Type D visa at the Swiss embassy/consulate in your home country so you can enter Switzerland for more than 90 days. It will be stamped in your passport and you'll have a certain amount of time that it's valid for. Once here you then go to the cantonal migration office to start the process of getting your pre-approved student permit issued to you.
