    Ever thought of an effective way to make ends meet as a Swiss student? Is your work life interfering with your school life? Does it seem like 24 hours a day just isn’t enough? Then, why don’t you take advantage of the Ausbildung system in Switzerland?

    Ausbildung is a European term which means Apprenticeship or Vocational Training. In Switzerland, it is referred to as Lehre. Ausbildung is a special system of education put in place for students of all races to work in Switzerland as apprentices and also get trained simultaneously. The program is open to both European and Non-European nations and provides a perfect avenue to balance school life with work life. The beauty of this program is that you do not need any special experience. All you need to do is pick your area of interest and get registered in it. However, there is the language barrier for non-indigenes. So, if you are considering this path, you need to be conversant with the German Language. For non-nationals, application can be done from your home country and interviews are conducted via Skype. Once you pass the interview, you need to obtain a special visa to seek an Ausbildung. Some of the documents required for your application are a cover letter, a curriculum vitae and your school certificates. Coming to the obvious question on everyone’s mind: do you get paid while at it? Of course, you do. It’s an arrangement that allows you 50% study and 50% work. Therefore, you are entitled to monthly stipends by your (training) company.

    Interested? The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. And that step? Well, it’s here.

    Switzerland, the country that sits on the fence in most matters of international concern!
    It is interesting to learn that they also welcome foreigners to come study in their country.

    This program, Ausbildung, is something very common in German speaking nations, especially Germany, Austria and Switzerland. I think this is another good opportunity for anyone seeking ways to move abroad, especially if you are young, say less than 25.

    One thing to note is that there is no age limit for this program. I say young people because they can still pursue a degree program after the Ausbildung; so everything works for their best interest.
    The recent post from @Olu really breaks down the process.

    I agree with you. It’s such a relief to see different developed countries of the world devising new means every now and then for to ensure that non-nationals fit in somehow

    Yes; using two WEAC results is accepted. Just be sure you have your B2 German language proficiency certificate.

    Are you currently learning? If so, what’s your level and where are you learning it?

      You start by taking a German language course.
      You can contact @rahelmodrach for assistance. She is a German language tutor. Maybe she can help.

      Alternatively, just find out about German language schools in your location and register to start the classes.
