A Vision and Strategy for the Future
As Switzerland has no natural resources, education and knowledge are very important resources. Therefore Switzerland are entitled to one of the world’s best education systems. Because they are responsible for education services (child care, schools, universities), education can vary considerably between the cantons. For example, some cantons are beginning to learn the first foreign language in the fourth class, while others from the seventh class. This in turn can be used with children between the cantons in a nightmare.
The University of Switzerland
The University of Switzerland hosts a wide variety of degree programs. Our course materials have been prepared by instructors well versed in their respective fields. Their efforts reflect the most up-to-date use of telemetric for the benefit of the serious distance learner.
Degree programs take three or four years. However, many applicants bring to their studies a variety of academically relevant skills and abilities that may reduce the duration of their undergraduate or graduate programs. Students for example, are encouraged to submit the maximum number of college level equivalency examinations (such as the CLEP or ACE exams in the US or CAT in the UK).The college also recognizes PEP (the Placement Examination Program) and DANTES (the American Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Educational Support tests).
When an applicant’s education is difficult to define using such formal criteria, University of Switzerland may apply direct work related experience towards credit. This is in line with the growing recognition that as education is relevant to employment, likewise employment is relevant to education. But what should be the assessment mechanism? This is a difficult question – one that the academic community continues to debate. Our assessment criteria are being continuously updated and improved.
