The Franklin University Switzerland experience teaches students to be resilient and committed, and the University is dedicated to its mission of educating responsible global leaders. This is especially true during the COVID-19 situation.

Our community has nevertheless responded to the crisis with efficiency and empathy, embracing an uncertain world while never abandoning the guiding principles of a Franklin education.

This semester, Franklin is finally resuming in-person classes, while continuing to keep the campus a safe environment, by following the COVID-19 basic rules and guidelines. You may find more details on safety measures on the Franklin COVID-19 Protection Plan and details on the start of the new Fall 2021 semester here.

We understand many students are facing significant challenges. Our Admissions team is here to guide and support you through this important time in your life as you prepare to move to Lugano to begin or continue your studies. Check our Admissions COVID-19 FAQ or contact the team.
