13) Holders of Upper-secondary Level General Education Qualifications

You hold a foreign upper-secondary level qualification (i.e. school-leaving certificates deemed equivalent to a Swiss general baccalaureate), and you would like to enroll in higher education in Switzerland?

Please contact the higher education institution that you wish to attend. That institution will then determine whether you are eligible for admission.

Baccalaureate certificates cannot be recognised independent from a university admission process. In fact, there is no legal basis for the recognition of foreign general education qualifications. Such certificates entitle the holder to enrol in higher education but do not prepare one for work in a specific profession.
