Costs of living and studying
The basic budget of a student is about CHF 1850.- per month.
Registration fees for courses and examinations, and semester fees: CHF 580 (per semester).
The payment slip issued by the Service des immatriculations et inscriptions allows the students to pay the fees at one of the Swiss postal counters or by e-banking.
