With four official languages (German, French, Italian, and Romansch), Switzerland is an ideal place for international education. The country’s motto is, “Unity, yes; uniformity, no,” giving you the opportunity to discover diversity in a peaceful, collaborative environment. By living with a host family and studying at a local high school, you’ll be totally immersed in regular teenage life. This is your chance to join an international community and make Switzerland’s breathtaking landscapes and delicious food a part of your everyday routine.
