Tourists come from all over the world to experience the beauty of the city and the surrounding landscape. Studying in this picture-postcard scenery is inspiring as well as distracting. The Lucerne School of Business does its utmost to make sure you will find the right balance between inspiration and distraction by providing you with the perfect environment for your experiences.

Foreign students can only obtain permission to work right away if it is part of their study programme (e.g. an internship). Before foreign students take up a job or internship, their employer must apply to the Lucerne Cantonal Labour Office of the Canton Lucerne for a work permit. Non-European students are not allowed to work during the first six months of their stay in Lucerne.
The following conditions apply to foreign students who would like to work besides their studies:
- Bachelor’s and master’s students from EU/EFTA member countries: up to 15 hours/week (semester), full time (semester break)
- Bachelor’s and master’s students from Non-EU/EFTA member countries: after 6 months: up to 15 hours/week (semester), full time (semester break); Exception: Master’s students with a bachelor’s degree from a university abroad who continue their studies in Switzerland in the same field may not have to wait for six months. However, each case needs to be considered individually.
Students who have at least a basic knowledge of the German language have a better chance of finding a job as with most companies in Central Switzerland the corporate language is German. Please find relevant job opportunities here.
In any case, it is necessary that studies remain the main purpose of student residency. Therefore, foreign students need written permission from their school to work part-time. Part-time work must not interfere with studies, nor may it be a reason for the length of study being extended.
