Switzerland is a country of mysteries. With its secrets and charming features, it never ceases to amaze the imagination of all those whose interest in the Swiss state, their foundations and mentality constantly fuels the desire to learn more and more about the Confederation.
Switzerland (German Schweiz; French Suisse; Italian Svizzera; Romansh Svizra) is a federal democratic state in the heart of (western) Europe.
Amazingly, many believe that the Confederation is surrounded on all sides by the countries of the European Union. This thesis is almost correct: Switzerland's northern neighbor, Germany, is the main political and economic partner; in the west, Switzerland borders on France; in the south - with Italy and in the east - with Austria.
Both Germany and France, Italy and Austria are EU members. However, in the east, there remains a small border with the Principality of Liechtenstein, which does not have EU membership, but is part of the same customs and monetary union with the Confederation.
The Confederation occupies a relatively small area of 41'285 sq km.
There is no mention of the term “capital of Switzerland” in the country's Constitution. Perhaps the Swiss forgot to choose their main city? However, the absence of the definition of "capital of Switzerland" in the Basic Law is a deliberate decision aimed at emphasizing the federal character of the country and the autonomy of the cantons, of which there are 26 in the country.
The unofficial capital of the Confederation, however, is the city of Bern, where the Parliament and Government of the country are located.

Every third student of Swiss high schools is a foreigner. Every year, about 50,000 students from all over the world come to Switzerland to pursue higher education. If you are planning to join the ranks of Swiss students, this section is for you. Here you will learn about the universities in Switzerland, the conditions for admission for Russian applicants and the cost of training.
The history of higher education in Switzerland begins in the 15th century with the formation of the University in Basel. Today, the country has 12 universities, eight schools of applied sciences, twenty pedagogical educational institutions and about 120 colleges. A distinctive feature of Swiss higher education is its inextricable link with the practical application of knowledge, in particular - with the active conduct of scientific and research work. Every year for these purposes the government of the country allocates about 2.6% of GDP and 5.2% for education. This is one of the highest rates in the world. It is this close attention to the cultivation and development of scientific personnel that allowed a small European country to perform an economic miracle and enter the high-tech market on a par with countries such as the United States, China and Japan.
Like most European countries, Switzerland has signed the Bologna Agreement, and the higher education system today follows this model. The first stage is a bachelor's degree, which involves training for 3-4 years, depending on the specialty, the second is a master's degree (1 or 2 years of study). Postgraduate education - doctoral studies - lasts 2-3 years. More than 50% of students are involved in research work.
Despite the fact that the universities in Switzerland are funded by the state, the administration is in the hands of the cantons, on the territory of which the educational institution is located. This also determines the language of instruction (recall that Switzerland is a multilingual country). At the University of Basel, University of Bern, University of St Gallen, University of Zurich and ETH Zurich, teaching is conducted in German. University of Geneva, University of Lausanne, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, University of Neuchâtel are French-speaking universities. The University of Friborg is bilingual, while Università della Svizzera italiana studies in Italian.
It is traditionally believed that economics is best studied at the University of St. Gallen, philology and humanities are strong at the University of Geneva, and those who are interested in natural sciences, engineering and architecture are the road to the University of Zurich and Lausanne.
All universities in the country are distinguished by the highest level of teaching. This is confirmed by international ratings. According to the Times Higher Education World University Rankings for 2017-2018, 10 out of 12 Swiss universities are among the top 500 in the world.
