A country with four official languages and a federal constitution is always likely to have a diverse higher education landscape and Switzerland is a case in point. Swiss universities are highly international and regularly recruit students and academics from other countries. There is, however, a limit of 25% on the overall number of foreign students that Swiss universities can recruit. Around 44% of teaching and administration staff are also from abroad, making Swiss universities some of the most international on the planet.
