Student Life

Le Bouveret Campus - On the shores of Lake Geneva

Our Professional Centre is situated in a small French-speaking village and summer resort called Le Bouveret, on the shores of Lake Geneva, Western Europes largest lake. Le Bouveret lies conveniently near the major city of Geneva and important towns of Montreux and Lausanne.

The campus is located in a magnificent building dating back to the early 1900s, just minutes from the lake and local attractions such as the Swiss Vapeur Park and the water amusement park, Aquaparc. Several restaurants and bars are also located in the village as well as banks and other typically found shops.

Brig Campus - At the foot of the Matterhorn

The University Centre is situated in the town of Brig-Glis, the largest German-speaking town in the Valais Region and at the foot of various famous ski resorts such as Zermatt and Saas-Fee.

Brigs charming cobblestoned centre with its many restaurants, bars, cafés and shops, is located within walking distance. The central tra.in station is just few minutes away from the campus where trains can take you to Bern in one hour or to Milan in just one hour and a half!
