Irrespective of the canton in which students live, they may apply for public funding to help them complete their studies. Various types of grants, allowances and loans (non-reimbursable, reimbursable in instalments, exemptions, allowances, etc.) are possible.
The eligibility conditions for these aids vary depending on each student’s personal circumstances. Students should contact the relevant national or cantonal bodies directly for more information. Since the application procedures are relatively lengthy, it is preferable to begin the process as soon as possible.
