swissnex China is excited to host a Preparatory Workshop and Alumni Gathering in the afternoon of 23rd June, 2016. We would like to invite all students newly admitted into a Swiss post-secondary institution, along with their families, to attend this event.
Outstanding alumni will be on-site to share their experiences and valuable lessons with the young recruits, providing an overview of the potential opportunities and challenges for students moving to Switzerland. In the workshop, you can also find useful topics on how to apply for your study visa, how to adapt to Swiss life, how to travel in Switzerland etc.
The workshop is followed by an informal networking session where you can meet and talk to young alumni from Swiss universities.
