Montreux is located just one hour by train from Geneva International airport making it very accessible for both local and international visitors. There are also excellent travel links by rail to the surrounding countries including Italy, France, Germany and Austria.
HIMs Leisure Manager organizes, in cooperation with the HIM Student Ambassador Forum, a wide range of sports and leisure activities as well as excursions and professional visits. Sports and social activities provide an important balance to academic study. Many of these events are funded by HIM. School sports teams are also organized each term. This allows students not only to get to know Switzerland better but also to relax and enjoy their stay.
