How do I apply to university or to a higher education institution?

You apply directly to the higher education institution you would like to study at (unless you want to study medicine). The entrance requirements for most faculties are the same for the whole of Switzerland. Links to the higher education institutions are available on the Swiss universities website (Rectors’ Conference of Swiss Universities).

How is medicine different?

The number of places on human medicine, dentistry and veterinary medicine courses is limited and changes from year to year. Students wishing to study medicine have to take an entrance exam.
