Graduating students in CH to be allowed to work in CH

Good news especially for non-EU students graduating here.
Foreigners who earn a degree in Switzerland will soon have a better chance of finding a job there too.

Both parliamentary chambers have decided to allow foreign graduates to stay on for six months after their studies.

Currently, foreigners attending Swiss universities must return home after the final bell rings. That’s a missed opportunity, according to supporters of the motion, which passed the Senate on Monday with a vote of 28 to eight.

Re: Graduating students in CH to be allowed to work in CH

Other countries eg Australia, Sweden have long allowed this, and has made it attractive to study and possibly find a job and pay off loans. As a result, lots of non-EU students tend to come over.

6 months may not be enough to find a job though.

Re: Graduating students in CH to be allowed to work in CH

As I understand it from one of our HR people, the new rules will allow them to stay on for a 6 month period to seek work, it has not impact on the permit situation. An employer will still have to go through the same process to get a permit for a non-EU grad., although having a Swiss qualification will probably put them in front of other non-EU grads....

Jim.

Foreign graduates allowed to job hunt

Something that I read that may interest some people here.

Foreigners who earn a degree in Switzerland will soon have a better chance of finding a job there too.

Currently, foreigners attending Swiss universities must return home after the final bell rings. That’s a missed opportunity, according to supporters of the motion, which passed the Senate on Monday with a vote of 28 to eight.

The move will be especially significant for students from outside Europe – who do not benefit from the freedom of movement arrangements that make it easier for Europeans to live and work in Switzerland.
