the family pays the Admission Deposit within 10 days (CHF 12’000 for a boarding student or CHF 2’000 for a day student. This secures the student's place.

The admission is not final until the Admission Deposit is received. The Admission Deposit is refunded at the end of the student's stay.

Student visa:
Students who are staying for longer than 3 months and who do not come from a European country may require a student visa to enter Switzerland. 

Please refer to the official website here to see which nationalities require visas. A student cannot enter Switzerland without the correct visa. 

The visa can take up to 12 weeks to process. Therefore, applications for the new school year must be made as soon as possible, to ensure that the student can commence the new school year on time.
Please be aware that is the family's responsibility to apply for the entry visa for the student.

Once a student has arrived in Switzerland, Brillantmont will apply for a student residency permit.
