      Scholarships and Grants

      We recommend that students create a personal budget for each academic year of their studies before they start. If the total costs of attending the university cannot be covered, it is possible to apply for a scholarship or a student loan. Scholarships are awards of financial aid that do not need to be paid back. However, student loans must be paid back after the student completes his or her studies.

      Those interested in applying for either a scholarship or a student loan should contact their cantonal scholarship office or private foundations.
