Franklin University Switzerland
Founded in 1969, Franklin University Switzerland is a private, independent university that is located on a hillside in the beautiful city of Lugano. The university offers an innovative approach to liberal arts education and places an emphasis on experiential learning and international exposure in a culturally diverse environment.
The university is accredited in Switzerland by the Swiss University Conference, and in the United States by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education.
As of fall 2020, Franklin University Switzerland had students from 55 countries and 65% female enrollment.
Prospective students and their parents are encouraged to visit the campus and to take a guided tour where they will meet students and professors, attend a couple of classes, and get a feeling for what it's like to live and study in Lugano.
For those unable to visit in person, the Admissions team organizes virtual visits and online Information sessions on a regular basis.
