The ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences was formed in 2007 with the merger of the Zurich University of Applied Sciences Winterthur (ZHW), the University Wädenswil (HSW), the University of Applied Psychology (HAP) and the University of Social Work.
The ZHAW is one of the leading universities of applied sciences in Switzerland. Our degree programmes are practice-oriented and scientifically based. Several of our 27 Bachelor’s and 16 Master’s degree programmes are unique in Switzerland.
At its three locations in the canton of Zurich, the ZHAW carries out research projects which either lead directly to new developments in companies in Switzerland and globally, or which bring improvements for our society. Researchers at the ZHAW are therefore in close contact with business partners and with public institutions. Our partners gain from the specialist knowledge of our experts and have access to our excellent research infrastructure.
Whether you would like an evaluation of your current situation and potential, career advice or job application coaching, our career services can help you make a smooth transition between university and the professional world.
The business and consultancy services provided by the ZHAW are tailored to your specific needs. We offer support in solving complex issues in the context of existing knowledge, and our expertise and modern infrastructure is available to you for analyses, simulations, expert opinions, training courses, workshops, etc.
We offer various wi-fi services to visitors at our locations. Wireless LAN networks (WLAN) are available to members of other Swiss universities, participants in the eduroam (education roaming) programme, WiSP (wireless service provider) clients and all other visitors.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, StudyPortals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
