Most students from outside of the EU need a visa to enter Switzerland. You can only enter Switzerland for studies with a student visa. If you need a visa, you must apply for one as part of your application to Rushford. Without a visa, you will not be able to enter the country to start your studies.
If you are unsure whether you need a visa to enter Switzerland, please contact us, your local Rushford representative, or the Swiss Embassy in your area.
The process of applying for and getting a visa can take up to 12 weeks, so you should factor this into your decision about which term you want to begin your studies.
The Rushford Admissions Office and/or your local Rushford representative will help you through this process and provide you with any necessary documents that you may require from our side.
More information about the visa application and stamping process is provided in the Detailed Steps section of this page.
Fees for all our programs are listed on their respective program page. Please check the program page for which you wish to apply.
In addition there is an application fee of CHF 150 to be paid after you have submitted your application. Your application process will not proceed further until the application fee has been paid.
Further to the application fee, you may incur other expenses such as for the translation of your documents if they are not in English, and document apostille.
