BSL advises students to budget a minimum of CHF 2500 per month for expenses related to food, accommodation, local travel/commuting, school textbooks, social/entertainment, and medical insurance.
Estimated costs – please note these are estimations of monthly costs which vary depending on the student’s budget and lifestyle:
Monthly accommodation estimate: CHF 1000 – CHF 2,500
Monthly food expenses estimate: CHF 600 – CHF 800
Monthly travel expenses estimate: CHF 100 – CHF 250
Monthly medical insurance estimate: CHF 300 – CHF 500
Please note that every student in Switzerland must be insured by a medical and accident insurance company in Switzerland, even if you already have an international travel insurance. (BSL can help you find an insurance company if you do not already have insurance in Switzerland).
