In order to apply for a student visa, we can deliver an attestation to the student. Please find below the procedure.
Student Visa or Permit:
1) To obtain a student visa to study at ASC International House in Geneva you first has to take an evaluation test to determine your knowledge of the language and course objectives. At ASC we identify our students’ individual needs and learning aims and tailor our courses accordingly.
2) After taking the test and provided that a course at the right level is available, you will have to enrol for a minimum of three months (12 weeks). In order to do this, you must provide either a contact address in Switzerland or your country of residence and pay the tuition fees.
The price for 12 weeks is CHF 4,200.- plus CHF 100.- enrolment fee (for VISA)
The price for 48 weeks is CHF 16,800.- plus CHF 100.- enrolment fee (for PERMIT)
Both these prices include administration and material costs. This can be paid directly to our account.
There are two possibilities:
A. VISA 3 months
B. PERMIT 12 months (3 months paid immediately)
3)Once the payment is received, an "Attestation" will be issued which you can present to the Office Cantonal de la Population (Foreign Police) in order to obtain a student visa (3 months) or a student permit (12 months).
Office Cantonal de la Population
Route de Chancy 88
for the visa to a Swiss Embassy or Consulate in your country.
The attestation will state your intention to study as per the completed enrolment form.
4)The Office Cantonal de la Population will determine whether you will be granted the visa and the type of visa; it is not the decision or the responsibility of ASC if the demand is refused. If the visa (or permit) is refused, ASC will refund the amount paid minus CHF 100- for administrative costs.
Regarding the internship, it is not so easy… It depends on what he is looking for. But sincerely, it is really difficult for someone without working permit
