We have a large community of international students here at Southampton Solent University and understand that the process of relocating to a new country can be challenging. Students coming from Switzerland can find advice about obtaining a visa and studying in the UK right here on the Solent website.

For more specific advice about coming from Switzerland to study, please see the information below. Alternatively, you can contact the British Council's Swiss offices or our own international advice team.
