  6. 6. German Language courses Switzerland is a unique country for languages. Needless to say, in a country with 4 official languages, it is a great chance for a student to study one of the local languages. German, being widely used in business, management, finance and industry, is spoken by the majority of the people in Switzerland. By integrating German lessons into the BAM, CityU of Seattle in Switzerland not only helps you to communicate with locals and establish lifelong friendships but also opens future doors here in the German speaking part of Switzerland. With the opportunity to practice their German constantly, students can both succeed here in their industry placement and internships, as well as in any other German-speaking environment. Part Time Job Opportunities Students need to be well informed about working conditions and requirements to be able to find part time jobs if they consider working during their studies. Students have the right to a part time job provided that they fulfill certain conditions. In the Canton Aargau, foreign students who have already been enrolled in a degree program are allowed to work from six months onward and for maximum 15 hours a week. These hours can go up and they can work full time only during their school breaks.The average earning is between 15 to 20 CHF per hour. In their search for a part time job, the university does not provide assistance and it would be up to the student`s personal attempts to get one. However, the only way to work in Switzerland, in accordance with the law, is to be registered in school when applying for employment. Scholarship Performance scholarships are based on academic performance achieved at CityU’s programs in Switzerland. CityU of Seattle in Switzerland grants scholarships to best-ranked students. At the end of each term, CityU will assess and rank students according to their Current GPA and determine the scholarships for the forthcoming term. Only students with a Current GPA of 3.5 or more will be ranked. • to the student ranked 1st 100 % of tuition fee • to the student ranked 2nd 50 % of tuition fee • to the student ranked 3rd 25 % of tuition fee Note:The scholarship calculation is based on the tuition fee of the next term and will be credited towards the next due installment. Scholarships will not be paid out, except in cases where all tuition and other fees have been fully paid for the whole duration of the study program. In case several students are within the same rank, the scholarship amount will be shared equally between those students. Best- ranking and best-improving scholarships cannot be accumulated. A scholarship is granted only once per calendar year to an individual student. No student may repeatedly avail of scholarships within the same calendar year no matter if he/she fulfills the ranking requirement.
