Study in Switzerland

STEP 1: Understand the requirements

If you decide to study in Switzerland, you will have the chance to develop your knowledge, outlook, and confidence, enabling you to reach your full potential. To make sure that you select the program that is right for you and your objectives, it is recommended that you gain as much knowledge as possible about the range of courses, institutions, and universities that are available and compare them. It is also crucial to review the prerequisites for the courses. You can accomplish this by reviewing the course descriptions on the university websites or the Edu Experts website. If you have any questions, you may contact us for information about your courses, scholarships that may be available, university applications, or you may contact the institution directly.

STEP 2: Take the Language Proficiency Test

Is it compulsory to take the Language Proficiency Test? Well, it depends on the curriculum the Malaysian student plans to study in Switzerland's language of instruction. If English is the language of instruction, Malaysian students must take an English proficiency test to prove they can converse well in the language. An English proficiency test may not be necessary, though, if the primary language of teaching is one other than English, such as German, French, or Italian.

Yet, regardless of the language of teaching used in their programme, it is advised that Malaysian students have a strong command of English. This is due to the fact that English is frequently used in academic and professional contexts in Switzerland, and having a solid command of the language can make it easier to communicate with mentors, peers, and prospective employers.

STEP 3: Apply to universities

It's time to get in touch with the universities you want to apply to, get their application packs, and send them early. Don't just apply everywhere. Compare your choices, decide on your preferred programme and university, and then pick one or two backup possibilities. Be cautious when completing the application form, and be sure to include accurate information supported by documentation. The university will give you an acceptance letter once you get accepted to study there. This document is crucial for the next requirements.

STEP 4: Apply for a D-Visa (Student Visa) 

It's time to apply for a D-Visa now that an institution is prepared to accept you. Your application must be submitted with the acceptance letter you obtained in the previous step, your passport, and an official documentation proving you have enough funds to attend college in Switzerland.

STEP 5: Travel to Switzerland

Once the application has been processed and an interview, if required, has been conducted, the immigration officer will decide upon your student's pass application. If accepted, it is now time to start planning your travel to Switzerland. Your pass will have a start date, which is the date from which the pass comes into force. 

The immigration officer will verify your permit and other documents at the port of entry before allowing you to enter Switzerland. This is the final step of the immigration formalities and you can now focus on commencing your journey as an international student in Switzerland.
