Fees

For information about all course fees see the EB Zurich programme and website. The fees are set according to the regulations of the cantonal education department. In individual cases the EB Zurich can, for important reasons, offer reduced course fees. The relevant application forms are available from the administration.

Vocational students

Students residing in canton Zurich who are enrolled in vocational training, or a secondary school, or are unemployed and enrolled in a vocational college, pay only half the normal course fee for further education courses which are not offered free of charge. Special conditions apply for commercial and industrial vocational trainees in the city of Zurich. As conditions vary, we recommend that you enquire at your college before registering.

Financial support for higher vocational training

From 1 August 2017, the Federal Government will support graduates of examinations leading to a federal certificate or diploma. Up to 50% of the costs will be refunded. Financial support does not depend on the success of the audit. Invoices/payment confirmations must be issued to the participants personally.

Each lesson lasts 45 minutes.
