Switzerland is a small country, but it's also a land of great diversity. Not only have the three main linguistic areas developed their own culture, traditions, economy and cuisine, but the great number of foreigners settled in Switzerland have also brought with them their various cultures and languages. With four national languages (German, French, Italian and Romansh) and over 21% of the population consisting of foreign citizens, Switzerland is a unique melting pot in the heart of Europe. Although the majority of people (60%) speak German – or, more precisely, Swiss-German – Swiss residents often speak at least two languages. Cross-cultural encounters are part of daily life in Switzerland; multilingualism is often helpful!
All of this makes studying in Switzerland an exciting and fulfilling experience. In fact, nearly a third of Students studying in Switzerland are from abroad (this figure rises to over 50% for research students!).
