#Anonymous on Nov 06, 2017 :
Expatriate family of 2 Primary school students. Would 8000 per month suffice?
#Marie on Jan 04, 2016 :
Hello, do you think that 5000 per month would be sufficient budget for family of 4?
#Layla on Aug 15, 2015 :
Does anyone knows what is average salary for nurses? Thank you
#Filip on Dec 02, 2014 :
Average salary is about 85 000 CHF per year before tax. After tax this is about 60 000 CHF - that is 5000 CHF per calendar month.
You need at least 1500 CHF to live as a student (cheap single room in flat or residence + food + compulsory health insurance, very little going out).
