How do we teach?
Online education at the Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL relies on online education as the main technology for teaching its students. This decision is due to the territorial dispersion of students and the wide opportunities for individualization of education that online education provides.
Training under the Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL programs can be carried out on the electronic platform of the institute or on the platforms of partner universities.
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.
About intramural education opportunities
Students who wish to study exclusively intramurally can take advantage of the opportunities provided by our main partner - Swiss School of Higher Education (SSHE). We would like to note, however, that intramural programs are taught in English at the Swiss School of Higher Education (SSHE).
Flipped-learning in SIIL
One of the key features of the educational process at the Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL is the use of the flipped-learning methodology. Thanks to this technique, students of the Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL can use the time for self-preparation and webinars with teachers as efficiently as possible. The flipped-learning methodology involves independent study of the material by students and the subsequent discussion of the material with the teacher.
Convergent educational programs of the Swiss International Institute Lausanne
The Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL attaches great importance to the growing problem of robotization of various types of labor. In the coming years, millions of people are at risk of losing their jobs due to the development of robotics.
Truck drivers, translators, accountants, taxi drivers and many other experienced professionals will lose their jobs to electronic systems.
Already today, automatic and robotic systems played a significant role in reducing the number of vacancies for cashiers, bank operators, exchange brokers and other specialists.
The world is on the verge of a revolution in the labor market.
People will experience an unprecedented struggle for jobs - the struggle with robots. Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL is at the forefront of this struggle and is ready to offer its students educational programs that significantly increase our students' chances of success in the competition for jobs.
Such programs are part of the convergent educational programs of the Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL. Convergent educational programs are joint programs of interdisciplinary training in two specialties at once.
Upon successful completion of training under a convergent program, two diplomas are issued for the specialties included in the convergent program. Thus, the student pays tuition for one convergent program, but receives two specialties, which is a very profitable investment.
Converged specialists have much higher chances of finding a job, since robotics primarily involves highly specialized types of human labor (personnel search, accounting, various types of analytics), while convergent activities that require a wide range of skills and knowledge are much more difficult to robotize.
Getting two convergent majors at once dramatically increases the chances of graduates of the Swiss International Institute Lausanne - SIIL to obtain a successful career in the face of accelerating labor robotization.
