The ideal place for your studies
Pursuing a degree at BSL gives you the chance to live and study in Switzerland, a multilingual country with a culturally diverse population and a growing expat community. You’ll have the opportunity to meet people from all over the world, enhance your cross-cultural skills, learn new languages and develop a global mindset.
BSL students benefit from the school’s close proximity to many international organizations and large corporations in the Geneva Lake region. Well known for its banking, commercial and tourism infrastructure, Switzerland ranks among the world’s 20 largest economies and hosts 15 Fortune 500 companies.
Beyond the classroom
BSL’s student council is responsible for organizing events and cultural activities on and off campus throughout the year with the aim of bringing students together to build relationships and network.
You can look forward to welcome parties for new students, our much-loved Culture days, BBQs and many other exciting social events. Our council is also dedicated to giving back to the community, thus numerous humanitarian projects are created by it and we encourage our full student body to get involved.
Easy access to the heart of Europe
Lausanne is easily accessible by road, by rail (with links to major Swiss cities and the TGV from Paris and Milan), by air (situated 60 km from Geneva International Airport, just 45 minutes by car or by train) and even by boat on Lake Geneva. This opens up endless opportunities to explore Switzerland and the rest of Europe on weekend trips and during school breaks.
Culture and leisure
Switzerland’s mountains, valleys, lakes and glaciers offer students the chance to indulge in year-round outdoor activities. From water sports to cross-country skiing, not to mention a magnificent 18-hole golf course, there is something for any individual or team looking for extracurricular activities. Lausanne is the ideal setting for all types of sports.
Switzerland is also a real paradise for contemporary art and culture aficionados. There are a vast range of attractions such as museums, galleries and world-renowned festivals of music, as well as its own little corner of theatre and literature spots.
Living in Lausanne
Located in the heart of Europe, Switzerland offers some of the world's most beautiful landscapes with an eclectic cultural heritage. Switzerland constantly ranks as one of the top 10 safest countries in the world, and it has held the top spot in the WIPO Global Innovation Index since 2011.
