Summer Courses In Switzerland

If you’ve always wanted to study abroad in Europe, but a whole semester just seems too long, then a summer course in Switzerland could be exactly what you need.

A four- or eight-week program in Europe would give you the chance to experience life at a European university without taking time out of your academic schedule.

Use your break effectively and come the fall semester you’ll be refreshed and ready to tell your friends about your incredible summer experience studying in Europe, as well as having plenty of transferrable credits to add to your record.

FUS offers two summer programs that give you the opportunity to combine academic learning in the classroom with experts in their fields and the chance to bring your lessons to life.
