Financing your studies
If you are going to live and study in Switzerland, please keep in mind that Geneva is amongst the most expensive cities in the world. It is important to establish a realistic and sustainable financial plan for the entire period of studies. Of course, obtaining a degree is also an investment in your personal development and in your own future. The financial aspect, therefore, should not be the only factor when deciding to begin or continue your studies in Geneva.
