Living in Switzerland

May 8, 2024

We speak to Serge Frech, the director of the Swiss national association of ICT training (ICT-Berufsbildung), about basic and continued IT training in Switzerland.

Unlike in many countries, most Swiss IT professionals complete vocational training. After achieving a basic degree, they can continue their education by obtaining a federal or advanced federal diploma. These qualifications are equivalent to a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree.

Expats with a degree from another country can also take part in this programme. Since there is a severe IT professional shortage in Switzerland, this opens up many opportunities.
