International degree-seeking students

Welcome to the University of Lucerne!

As an international degree-seeking student, you are technically a "regular" student at the University of Lucerne and you will receive all relevant information regarding your study programme directly from the faculty you are registered with. Nevertheless, there are many additional administrative tasks (e.g. registration with the commune of residence, health insurance, application for a residence permit, opening a bank account, etc.) that need to be completed when moving to Switzerland from abroad. The team of the International Relations Office is happy to provide the information you need to complete these tasks. This is why every semester we organize a "Welcome Presentation" on the first day of classes - you will receive an invitation via e-mail in due time.

Please also use the very comprehensive "Guide for International Students" to get essential information about Switzerland and the University of Lucerne.

We are looking forward to welcoming you at the University of Lucerne!
