The University of Zurich was founded in 1833, though its origins stretch back as far as 1525 and the days of protestant reformer Ulrich Zwingli. Today, the University of Zurich is the largest university in Switzerland and plays a leading role in Swiss higher education. It offers a great diversity of studies to its 25,000 students, with more than 100 different degree programs and over 3,000 combinations of disciplines in seven faculties. Two thousand lecturers in 140 institutes provide the broadest range of subjects and courses available at any Swiss institution of higher education.

Nine museums and collections, covering subjects from anthropology to zoology, constitute yet another valuable academic resource.

    The city of Zurich lies in the German-speaking part of Switzerland. With over 367,000 inhabitants, Zurich combines the advantage of a comfortably sized town with the diversity of a cosmopolitan city. Thanks to its attractive location on the banks of the Lake of Zurich and the Limmat River, as well as, its proximity to recreation areas like the Uetliberg and the Swiss Alps, Zurich offers a very high quality of life. Zurich is not only the economic but also the cultural center of Switzerland. The diversity of the city comes from the tolerant, cosmopolitan and multicultural population, as well as, from its renowned cultural facilities and various alternative and smaller-scale cultural events. Zurich also stands out with its excellent public transportation system both locally and within the national system, and it is easily reached internationally by train or plane.

    The Academic Athletics Association of Zurich offers classes in over 70 different types of sports, recreation and wellness, as well as, various drop-in facilities such as solariums, saunas and weight rooms. Most of the offers are included in ISEP benefits.

    The Erasmus Student Network organises various excursions, including city tours within Switzerland, ski and trekking weekends, and more. It also runs a buddy system.
