Education and training in Lucerne

For a country like Switzerland, which is poor in raw materials, a well-trained workforce and continuous innovation are the most important assets. Education and research policies are geared accordingly. The quality of public schools is internationally recognized.

Dual vocational training

Switzerland’s dual education system is unique in the world and enables the country to train a highly qualified workforce. In addition to the classic school career at secondary schools and universities, workers are trained directly in practice in many craft and industrial professions as well as in professions in the service sector.

Wide range of education

Lucerne has a wide range of educational opportunities, from preschool institutions to international schools and universities. Technical schools, the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts, the University of Lucerne and various institutes of further education offer courses in almost all disciplines.

In-service training

Typical of Switzerland’s permeable education system are the many job-oriented continuing education programs. In Lucerne, the offer is particularly large in the areas of gastronomy, tourism and health.
