We look forward to welcoming you to Franklin University Switzerland and want to make sure you have everything you need to prepare for the experience.

Undergraduate students are greeted by Orientation Mentors who will show you around campus and help get you off to a strong start.

During Orientation, you will meet your academic advisor, a faculty member who leads your First Year Seminar. You will also have an Academic Mentor, a third or fourth year student who participates in your First Year Seminar and will give you tips on academic resources and how to settle into life in Switzerland.

Graduate students are given full independence and can access student services as needed.
