Nationals of European Union (EU) countries can easily obtain a residence permit provided they have in their possession all the required documents.
This permit authorises a maximum of 15 hours work per week.
Nationals of countries outside the EU must be in possession of a study visa issued by the Swiss Embassy or Consulate of their place of residence.
In particular, they must attest that they are able to support themselves financially.
The formalities to obtain a study visa can take up to 3 months, so it’s important to get started as soon as possible!
