Lausanne, city of knowledge
University, institute of technology, engineering, hotelkeeping, public administration, business and commerce, fine arts, drama: many of the most reputable colleges and universities of applied sciences and arts in Europe and the world are based in Lausanne. Those who attend them are guaranteed to benefit from well-established, universally recognised training courses.
From 1537 to the present day
‘The training institutions present in Lausanne constitute centres of excellence in fields of key importance for our future.’
Institutions of higher education
Apart from its University and its Institute of Technology, Lausanne has nine higher-education institutions of international standing.
Established side by side to the south-west of the greater urban area, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) and the University of Lausanne (UNIL) form a city of nearly 30'000 inhabitants during the day.
