5 reasons to study at the FFHS

It is not easy to reconcile your job, family, hobby and studies. The FFHS helps you to achieve your goal of university studies individually and flexibly. We have summarised the five most important arguments for studying at the FFHS for you.

All degree programmes at the FFHS lead to nationally and internationally recognised qualifications. As a member of the University of Applied Sciences of Southern Switzerland (Scuola unversitaria professionale della Svizzera italiana SUPSI), we are a federally recognised university of applied sciences under public law.


You mainly learn when and where it suits you best. Attendance time is kept to a minimum, giving you great freedom to combine your studies with a heavy workload. A structured learning plan supports you in your individual time management.

The FFHS has more than 20 years of experience in distance learning and continuously invests in the development of its online learning platform. Our intention is to ensure an efficient and sustainable learning experience through the targeted use of e-learning technologies in combination with classical teaching.

You are not left to manage your studies on your own. On the online learning platform, you will be supervised by lecturers and remain in constant contact. Thanks to regular face-to-face teaching, you can also exchange ideas with fellow students face-to-face - at central locations in Zurich, Basel, Bern or Brig.

As a accredited Swiss university of applied sciences, the FFHS is characterised by a high degree of practical orientation. As our students combine work and study, the transfer between theory and practice is especially successful. At the FFHS, you can benefit from a valuable exchange of experience with lecturers and fellow students from a wide range of industries.
