Entry on Tourist Visa, while Student Visa is processed?

Hi Everyone

Ive just come back from the Swiss embassy in Australia and Im worried I could have a problem.

I start a 6 month language course in Switzerland on 1 Feb, only problem is that my student visa may not be ready in time.

Does anyone know if I can enter on my tourist visa (Im an Aust citizen so can stay for 3 mths no problem) and get my student visa after arriving (i understand I may have to travel to germany or italy etc to pick it up).

One thing that may be in my favour is that Im actually leaving Switzerland in May (3 months after arriving) to come back to Australia breifly for a wedding. So some would argue that I dont need a student visa in the first place.

Anyone expreienced something like this?
