Study Abroad in Switzerland

Switzerland is a western European country where approximately 2,000 American students study abroad each year. Switzerland is home to two large economic centers, Zurich and Geneva. The country is located among the Swiss Alps which provides for a wide range of geographical features including mountains, forests, wide open pastures, and large lakes. Although located in the mountains of the Swiss Alps, Switzerland offers a mild climate. The culture in Switzerland is very diverse as it is located between many different European countries making it a great place to study abroad.
