High School in Switzerland

Do you love skiing? Then you’ve found the ideal country for your high school exchange. Beautiful Switzerland is often associated with the snow-capped Alps and considered a skier’s paradise.

More than skiing

Switzerland has a lot more to offer than well-prepared slopes. For example, world-renowned production of luxurious watches and delicious chocolate. There are modern cities with excellent public transportation. The standard of living is high in this tidy, well organized and culturally diversified country. There are many languages spoken in Switzerland, but you will be living in the German-speaking part.

Small but sweet

It’s a rather small nation, which means that you will have easy access to many parts of the country. Also, it’s perfectly located in the middle of Europe. That means that France, Italy, Germany and Austria are close by and that you could spend some of your school vacations skiing in the Alps or sunbathing on the Riviera.
