Cost of Living
Switzerland is not a cheap country to live in. By no means would we want to suggest otherwise. However, there are some factors to place it in a wider context. Have a closer look.
There are two factors to bear in mind regarding your expenses in Switzerland:
1st: A Swiss higher education is a major investment in your career prospects that yields a high return!
2nd: The education comes at a relatively moderate price regarding tuition fees, especially compared to similarly top-ranked education hotspots worldwide!
However, in order to prepare for your study period, take a look at the student budget and check out the varying tuition fees in the university profiles.
