Swiss schools want more Indian students

Swiss schools want more Indian students
Schools from across Switzerland are now reaching out to countries like India to get students from the country to Swiss secondary schools.
Swiss Learning, an educational body managed by the Heads of Swiss Educational Institutes, had brought together representatives from various schools of the country to meet stakeholders, Indian schools and parents of potential students, for the first time in India.

Christophe X Clivaz, director, Swiss Learning said, "Switzerland is a country that prides itself in offering first class education through its pre- and post-university studies, and in being the leader in scientific research. These qualities ensure that pupils are equipped to confront today’s challenges and opportunities of globalization."

Beau Soleil College Alpin International is witnessing an increasing demand from parents. Eva Ghewij, director of admissions and marketing at the College Alpin Beau Soleil, said that the student-teacher ratio is good, apart from the fact that they pay equal attention to sports and academics.

The school conducts an entrance examination in English and mathematics apart from an interview. “There are different schools to cater to different needs of children. Hence, when parents approach us with a specific need for their child, we advise them on which school would best suit them," she said. Students of this school also travel to different parts of the world to learn different cultures and undertake projects.

Swiss Learning is also looking to partner with some Indian schools, so that students can take part in exchange programmes at the secondary school level. Livaz said Swiss students could come to Indian schools for some weeks and vice-versa through this programme. Several Swiss schools have such arrangements with schools in other countries.

Under Swiss Learning, there are several high schools, including Institut Le Rosey, Brillantmont International School, Institut auf dem Rosenberg, College Champittet, Lyceum Alpinum, Zuoz, College Beau Soleil, Aiglon College, TASIS (The American School in Switzerland), Institute Montana Zugerberg, College du Leman and Leysin American School. It also includes Glion Institute of Higher Education and Les Roches International School of Hotel Management.

On an average, education in these schools would cost 70,000 to 100,000 Swiss Francs (about Rs 45 lakh to Rs 64 lakh) a year. This includes boarding, lodging and trips for educational purposes. Currently, boarding schools in Switzerland accept students till the 12th grade.

The majority of these schools offer intensive studies in English, French, Italian or German as a second language enabling students to quickly integrate into the mainstream programme. The option of pursuing bilingual studies is also a popular feature. Programmes on offer lead to a range of examinations renowned throughout the world.
