This decision is due to the territorial dispersion of students and the wide opportunities for individualization of education that online education provides.

SIIL's online education programs include compulsory webinars with teachers and final exam interviews. Education is subject to a specific schedule, which is very important to maintain student self-discipline in conditions of self-study.

All teachers at the Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL are selected with a prerequisite for proficiency in the language of their students.

Dear friends,

We are passing through difficult and interesting period when this new situation make us rethink our priorities and our way of life.

The changements also affect the education at all levels: from secondary school to the programs of advanced studies. All the institutions are forced to rethink not only the teaching methods but especially the proposed specializations.

It is important that the education does not lose its value. On the contrary, the education and knowledge are still (or become) one of the best investments in the post Coronavirus era, as it was stressed by the OECD in its Economic Outlook in June 2020.
