Hello, I want to ask about the quality of education in Switzerland. I am now living in the EU, but will I need a visa to come and study there? Are foreigners accepted? I am from Bulgaria, and I am willing to study Computer Technology.
Thank you!
#Alexis on Dec 06, 2014 :
Hi there.
How much is left from a CHF 100,000 salary, after ALL taxes are reduced?
Thanks a lot.
#Anonymous on Jan 26, 2014 :
Why is the utilities bill in Bern that high compared to other Swiss cities? Is this figure accurate?
