The Swiss authorities online
It is important to continue to acquire skills and qualifications if you want to keep up with changes in your occupation and improve your chances on the job market.
Careers and education advisory services provide information on the range of education and training opportunities on offer, the conditions that apply to them and entrance requirements. They also provide information on different occupations and possible sources of funding.
If you have practised a trade or profession for a certain number of years, you may in some circumstances be allowed to take the vocational examination and obtain a Basic Federal Certificate or an Advanced Federal Certificate. The cantonal vocational training office decides on the applications to sit the examination and provides the necessary information.
If you want to study at a university or university of applied sciences, you can sit your baccalaureate or specialised baccalaureate examinations as an adult.
The courses offered by universities allow graduates to earn new qualifications, specialize in a subject or change career.
