Swiss Distance Learning University

Education my own way

Distance learning at the Swiss Distance Learning University is perfect for people who work and study at the same time.

The Swiss Distance Learning University is the only institute recognised as a distance learning university in Switzerland and has been offering an extensive range of distance learning courses since 1992. The structure of the courses is in line with the Bologna Directives and the degrees are equivalent to those of traditional Swiss universities.


With distance learning, you determine when, where and how often you learn in self-paced learning. You can adapt your learning to suit your own personal situation – the perfect solution as it enables you to complete your university degree.

Degree Structure


All our study courses have a structure in line with the Bologna Directives. This means that your Bachelor and Master degree is internationally recognised. The modules are taught by renowned professors from Swiss universities as well as professors from abroad.

Recognised Qualifications


There is always someone to turn to during a distance-learning course. Course coordinators are on hand to personally attend to your questions. As soon as you are registered, you will also be in close contact with the professors and assistants via the online platform.
