Student Visa

Switzerland is home to a lot of top-notch schools; the likes of the University of Zurich, College Champittet, College du Leman, etc. Some foreigners are willing to travel to study in Switzerland and be a part of the school’s history. You need to know the type of visa you will be applying for either the long-term study visa or the short-term study visa. Just as it can be deduced from their names, a short-term study visa allows you to stay in the country and study for a course that does not last more than 3 months i.e. 90 days while long-term study visas allow for more than that. Only under certain circumstances can you be allowed to work with your study visa so before fulfilling all these conditions please refrain from engaging in any form of paid work.
