Client specific Educational Advice to students, parents and employers

EDUCATIONAL ADVICE This   service   category   applies   when   SIEPS   is   required   to   compare   programs   for   you;   when SIEPS   is   to   perform   some   research   into   various   educational   programs   in   terms   of   your specific requirements, such as: • a specific starting date? • a specific price range? • a specific nationality mix? • a specific class size? • high   school   equivalency   if   you   have   either   no   high   school   diploma   or   a   high   school diploma    other    than    International    Baccalaureate;    Swiss    Maturité;    German    Arbitur; English A-levels; American High School Diploma? This   service   also   applies   when   SIEPS   is   required   to   liaise   with   one   or   more   educational institutions   on   your   behalf   in   order   to   find   answers   to   your   specific   questions.   SIEPS   is   not a   school.   Consequently,   SIEPS   identifies   in   all   objectivity   the   best   possible   educational options in terms of your educational background, requirements and expectations.

Aptitude tests

The   degree   of   our   success   is   very   often   a   function   of   our   educational   and   professional pursuits being as much as possible aligned with our natural aptitudes. Aptitude   tests   are   recommended   to   candidates   who   are   still   in   doubt   about   their   natural inclinations and talents. Aptitude tests are arranged upon request.

Career counselling

Career   counselling,   including   assistance   with   job   application   and   training   for   selection interviews,    is    particularly    appreciated    by    students    looking    for    internships    /    work opportunities   during   their   studies   or   by   graduating   candidates   who   want   to   start   their professional career.

Private tuition and language tests and other official testing

PRIVATE TUITION SIEPS   arranges   for   private   tuition   in various   subjects   (including   business   English   and   other languages): • In preparation for entry into or continuation of various educational programs. • For revision. • In   preparation   for   various   external   tests   and   examinations   (language   and   other   tests or examinations). LANGUAGE TESTS As   an   official   proof   of   your   language   skills.   SIEPS   informs   you   about   examination   centres and   the   contents   and   the      level   of   the   examinations.   SIEPS,   at   your   request,   registers   you for    these    tests    and    examinations.    The    official    proof    of    the    level    of    your    skills    in    the language   in   which   you   wish   to   study   gives   you   the   best   chance   with   your   visa   and   course applications. TESTING OTHER THAN LANGUAGES AND APTITUDE Other tests and examinations: TOEIC, Cambridge First Certificate, TOEFL, DELF, GMAT.


The   SIEPS   Educational   Database   includes   some   of   the   most   significant,   internationally recognised and oldest private international schools and universities in Switzerland. Their   excellence   is   guaranteed   by   the   various   accreditation   levels   and   quality   labels   they have earned.

SIEPS   helps   students,   parents,   schools   and   universities   come   closer   together   by   providing an Educational Database comprised of: • A   quality   oriented   list   of   some   of   the   oldest   and   most   prestigious   private   schools   and universities in Switzerland • Including their respective educational programs offered • A complete list of accreditation agencies • An exhaustive list of affiliation bodies • A list of degrees and what they mean to you

Accreditation   is   a   type   of   voluntary   quality   assurance   process   under   which   educational programs   are   evaluated   by   an   external   non-governmental   body   to   determine   if   applicable standards are met. If this is the case, the agency grants an accredited status. Accreditation    is    not    permanent.    It    must    be    maintained.   A    school    has    to    demonstrate during   a   regular   review   process   that   it   has   developed   and   grown,   not   just   maintained   the status quo. Accreditation   also   permits   an   evaluation   on   an   international   level   regarding   recognition   or equivalency of the degree you receive.

Bachelor   of   Business   Administration   (BBA)?,   Master   of   Business   Administration   (MBA)?, Executive   MBA   (EMBA)?,   Master   in   International   Business   (MIB)?   Master   in   International Diplomacy? Which   educational   program   is   best   for   me?   What   is   the   difference?   How   can   I   quickly compare   educational   programs   offered   by   private   schools   and   universities   in   Switzerland? Even   better,   how   can   I   print   out   a   list   of   private   schools   and   universities   in   Switzerland   that match my specific requirements? The   degrees   offered   by   schools   and   universities   the   world   over   may   be   the   same   but   not all   educational   approaches   to   obtain   that   degree   are   the   same!   Each   private   school   or university   in   Switzerland   offers   their   specific   tailored   made   approach   to   education.   This approach   is   expressed   in   the way   they   adapt   their   educational   curriculum   in   order   to   meet their own respective standards of excellence.

An   academic   degree   is   a   college   or   university   diploma,   often   associated   with   a   title   and sometimes   associated   with   an   academic   position,   which   is   usually   awarded   in   recognition of   the   recipient   having   either   satisfactorily   completed   a   prescribed   course   of   study   or having   conducted   a   scholarly   endeavour   deemed   worthy   of   his   or   her   admission   to   the degree. Understanding   what   degree   is   right   for   you   can   be   a   daunting   task!   To   this   effect   SIEPS has    made    available    an    exhaustive    list    of    degrees    offered    by    private    schools    and universities in Switzerland. Browse and learn!  

An affiliation is not an accreditation process, but merely an association with another entity. The   main   advantage   of   affiliation   bodies   is   that   they   often   incorporate   an   international network   of   partners,   associates,   business   networks   and   professionals   in   various   industries and   therefore   offer   interesting   opportunities   for   students   to   enter   the   “real   world”   and   the international job market through their affiliates worldwide. Affiliation   bodies   can   also   include   a   select   and   alumni   group   of   dedicated   professionals or researchers that have affiliates in your area of interest for further study application.


Housing Services

Whether   you   seek   a   single   room   studio   or   a   luxury   apartment,   SIEPS   will   address   your requirements   and   help   you   to   find   housing   &   accommodation   in   Switzerland.   SIEPS   offers a large array of housing services as described in more detail under the headings below. Finding   housing   in   Switzerland   is   not   as   simple   as   it   seems.   The   saturated   Swiss   rental markets,   the   language   barrier,   the   housing   search   (time   consuming),   the   endless   visits, and   then   the   question   of   financial   guarantees.   SIEPS   handles   the   whole   process   for   you! Furthermore,    SIEPS   will    provide    personal    and    corporate    financial    guarantees    for   your housing so you can move in immediately! Entering   a   rental   agreement   in   Switzerland   usually   requires   a   3   months   in   advance   paid deposit   equal   to   the   amount   required   for   3   months   of   rent.   Additionally,   the   rent   for   the first   month   of   occupancy   is   payable   in   advance. A   furnished   studio   apartment with   kitchen and bathroom facilities typically rents starts from CHF1000.- per month.


Housing Search

This service consists of the following options: • Sending you, by email, housing proposals in terms of your requirements. • Checking   the   availability   of   the   housing   options   which   you   might   have   selected   from our website. • Making the appointments for you to visit the housing which you have selected.  • Accompanying you to visit the housing.

SIEPS as Guarantor

Important information for non-Swiss students Estate   agencies   require   a   guarantor   in   Switzerland   in   addition   to   a   rent   deposit.   This   is   a person   domiciled   in   Switzerland,   who   by   his   signature   guarantees   payment   of   rent.   In case   of   non-payment,   the   estate   agency   will   turn   against   that   person   to   get   the   non-rent set. SIEPS   will   serve   as   Guarantor.   This   service   is   for   students   who   cannot   obtain   housing   in their   own   name   or   their   parents’   name   and   who   need   a   guarantor.   SIEPS   will   provide corporate and personal financial guarantees.  In this capacity SIEPS will attend to the following requirements: • Compiling the application(s) to rent the housing of your choice. • Pay monthly rent and charges (and other bills if required). • Draw up payment schedules and to provide photocopies of the pertaining vouchers.  • Manage any issue relating to your housing. • Attend to the apartment hand-over meetings: when you enter and when you leave. Entry meeting: to note down the condition in which the apartment is handed over to you. Exit meeting: to determine as to whether the apartment has suffered any deterioration    beyond   what    could    be    defined    as    “normal   wear and tear”, during your stay. WHAT ARE FINANCIAL GUARANTEES? A   financial   housing   guarantee   in   Switzerland   is   in   general   a   deposit   of   3   months’   worth   of rent,   which   is   blocked   in   a   trust   account   until   the   end   of   the   rental   period,   therefore cannot   be   used   to   compensate   for   outstanding   rent   payments   during   the   rental   period.   It is   held   there   essentially   for   damage   caused   to   the   apartment   during   the   rental   period which   is   not   covered   by   the   tenants’   insurance.   Once   the   tenant   has   left   the   apartment,   all damage   has   been   repaired,   and   rent   payments   are   all   up   to   date,   the   agency   releases   the entirety of the deposit back to the tenant.

Apartment Cleaning

When   you   hand   back   your   apartment   to   the   Real   Estate   agency   from   which   it   has   been rented,   it   has   to   be   in   perfect   condition.   If   this   is   not   the   case,   the   agency   will   appoint   a company to have it professionally cleaned.  SIEPS    will    arrange    for    quotations    for    professional    cleaning    of    your    apartment    and coordinate the entire process.

Furniture moving & storage

SIEPS    will    obtain    quotations    for    the    moving,    and,    if    applicable,    the    storage    of    your furniture and coordinate the entire process.

Administrative Services

Students   need   to   be   able   to   concentrate   on   their   studies   in   order   to   have   the   best   return on their considerable investment of effort, time and money. Such   concentration   is   difficult   to   maintain   when   an   entire   series   of   administrative   tasks pile   up   in   need   of   attention.   Cultural   differences   often   lead   to   misunderstandings   and such   tasks   become   literally   overwhelming   if   they   are   formulated   in   a   language   which   the student hardly speaks. The   schools   assist   students   to   a   point.   Many   students   (and   some   parents)   turned   to   SIEPS for   assistance.   This   happened   to   such   an   extent   that   SIEPS   created   an   Administrative Centre for Students & Parents.


Visa & Permit Application

Advice on handling the entire procedure SIEPS   gives   advice   for   the   compiling   of   the   application,   or   you   may   request   SIEPS   to   take care   of   the   entire   study   visa   &   permit   application   process.   In   such   case,   SIEPS   guides   you through    the    process,    prepares    all    the    documents    and    liaises    with    the    educational institution concerned where required. SIEPS   coordinates   your   various   educational   aspirations,   if   you   have   decided   on   more   than one   option   and   summarises   all   in   a   study   plan which   meets   the   requirements   of   the   Swiss authorities.

Health / Accident Insurance Health    and    accident    insurance    is    compulsory    in    Switzerland.    Students    coming    from outside   Switzerland   may   check   with   the   Swiss   Embassy/Consulate   closest   to   their   place of   residence   as   to   whether   their   local   health   and   accident   insurance   cover,   which   they might   already   have,   is   accepted   in   Switzerland.   If   this   is   not   the   case,   then   please   contact SIEPS or the school in which you are registered.
