Working while studying

Foreign students may work a maximum of 15 hours per work during their studies, and up to 100% during semester breaks. This must be reported in all cases to the responsible immigration authorities. Students from outside the EU/EFTA region may only start working six months after the beginning of their studies. In these cases, the employer must submit a corresponding request for taking up employment to ensure that an employment check can be carried out. Following this, the immigration authorities can issue a work permit.

Jobs can be found in newspaper advertisements, general employment websites, student associations at your university or via the university itself. Here are some websites at the individual universities as well as some other useful links:

Working after studies

If you are a university graduate and you do not want to work at a university, you«ll have to look through the job advertisements in daily newspapers, in specialist publications, at associations and in the corresponding web publications. You»ll find further tips and links at the professional counselling services at www.berufsberatung.ch → Careers → Search for job.

The university as employer

As there is no central database of open positions at universities, the university in question must be looked for in the database. A collection of direct websites can be found at EURAXESS SWITZERLAND. If you do not find what you are looking for there, ask at the subject-specific institute, department or seminar of the university you are interested in.
