Switzerland is a hub for excellent education. Outstanding universities such as ETH Zurich and EPFL regularly rank globally among the top universities for science and technology. In addition, public research institutions such as the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) and international organizations such as the United Nations have their headquarters in Switzerland.
The academic landscape in Switzerland comprises twelve universities awarding doctorate degrees, as well as eight universities of applied science, which offer a more practice-focused approach to studying.
