Before you can start your studies in Switzerland, you have to make various arrangements with regard to accommodation, insurance, entry and residence. The conditions depend on your country of origin/nationality. It is the student or prospective student's responsibility to get information on the entry formalities in due time and make the necessary arrangements.
Contact your nearest Swiss embassy or consulate for specific information. You may find more information on the website for the Staatssekretariat für Migration SEM (State Secretariat for Migration SEM):

IMPORTANT: A tourist visa DOES NOT allow you to pursue studies in Switzerland.
You should apply for your visa at least four months before the start of your studies at the Swiss embassy or consulate in your home country.
If the student intends to follow the educational programs at SBS Swiss Business School for immigration purposes, it is the SOLE responsibility of the student to check if the country of destination accepts our educational programs. Immigration legislation is complex and changes on a regular basis, it is therefore the sole responsibility of the student to check with specialized lawyers in this matter. SBS Swiss Business School does not take any responsibility in this matter.
