A Leading Force in Distance University Learning
The success story behind the Swiss Distance University Institute began over 20 years ago. Since 1992, we have been offering distance degree programmes at a university level in Brig, Bern, Fribourg, Lausanne, Naters, Pfäffikon SZ, Rapperswil and Sierre. Over 1,900 students from Switzerland and abroad are currently registered in degree programmes in German or French.
All degree programmes comply with the Bologna Guidelines. This means that they are recognised within and beyond Switzerland, and supported and established internationally.
Teaching in distance learning is based on the idea of open, flexible and individual learning. The Swiss Distance University Institute follows the concept of modern distance learning as «Blended Learning», a combination of eLearning and traditional attendance of classes. The proportion of the various elements differs depending on the subject.
