EDUCA SWISS is a Swiss foundation that promotes and finances education. We help motivated individuals to achieve their educational project, on the one hand by providing free assistance in the planning and budgeting of their professional education project, and on the other hand by arranging student loans at favourable interest rates.

EDUCA SWISS’ Vision and Commitment

We wish to create opportunities together because we are convinced that every person should be able to achieve their education project. Education not only strengthens the national economy, but also promotes a healthy society. Money in the form of a student loan creates a lasting impact, increases the graduation rate and can be used again after repayment. Our guiding principles are encouragement, commitment and professionalism.
