Student visa for Switzerland

Student visa for Switzerland

Students coming from member states of European Union and European Economic Area can study in Switzerland without student visa. For studies which last longer than 3 months they will need residence permit. Students coming from third countries who want to study for more than 3 months in Switzerland must have national visa which allows them to enter the country and upon arrival they need to apply for residence permit.
