Switzerland is a hub for excellent education and science. It has outstanding universities with numerous programs, many world-class public research institutions, and a thriving private sector which encourages research and development and conducts its own cutting-edge research. Whereas undergraduate programs are usually taught in the main national languages (German, French, Italian), master’s degree and Ph.D. programs are increasingly conducted in English. The quality of life is among the best in the world. Excellent infrastructure, safety, and political and economic stability are all good reasons why Switzerland is a great place to study and conduct research.
