Why study abroad in Switzerland?
”Switzerland melds the best of all worlds — and adds a healthy dose of chocolate, cowbells, and cable cars.”
Rick Steves, American travel writer

If you enjoy the outdoors, Switzerland is the place to head for on your study abroad year. Mountaineering, hiking and skiing are national pastimes, and your study abroad wouldn’t be complete without partaking in at least some of these Swiss passions. Even if your chosen study abroad college is in the heart of a city, you’ll never be more than half an hour away from mountains or lakes. Incredibly the Swiss have four national languages. With such a diversity of language and culture, it’s hardly surprising that most study abroad students soon feel right at home. Studying in Switzerland offers unparalleled opportunities to develop your language skills. German, French or Italian are all spoken depending on the part of Switzerland you choose for your study abroad programme.
