Leading in the field of university distance learning
The success story of the Swiss University of Applied Sciences (FernUni Schweiz) began 25 years ago. Since 1992, we have been offering postgraduate courses at our three locations in Brig, Pfäffikon SZ and Siders. Over 1,500 students from Germany and abroad are currently studying in German or French.
All courses are based on Bologna guidelines. As a result, the courses beyond Switzerland are recognized, internationally supported and aligned.
The design of distance learning is based on the idea of open, flexible and individual learning. FernUni Switzerland follows the concept of modern distance learning as a "blended learning", a combination of eLearning and classical attendance lessons. Depending on the course of study, the different proportions are different.
