TESTIMONIALS

"My first year on the Swiss Degree programme was amazing. I met so many new people and made great friends. I also got to live in the Swiss environment."

Camellia Nguyen

from Vietnam , studying at IMI

The programme itself is quite challenging but brings many lessons and great experiences. This is how I learned to manage my time properly. I also learned how to deal with pressure serving in the IMI main dining hall. This was great preparation for my internship! The internship was not as stressful as I imagined as I was ready for it. I have worked in Vietnam before, but I must say the working environment In Switzerland is completely different and I have learned many new things. I started my German lessons at IMI and it improved a lot during my internship in Zurich. I am now looking forward to my second year and new challenges!
