Student LifeLife On Campus In Le Bouveret, Switzerland

Moving to Switzerland has been the best decision ever! I am completely in love with this country!

It seems that about 99% of the student population live on campus at Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland.

In the beginning, I thought it was strange that older students chose to live on campus. But the reality is that nearly all of the students are foreign and have left their country to get an education in Switzerland.

The average age of the culinary student is about 25 but of course, there are some exceptions. At the moment there is a student that is 50 years old, and in the past students joined who were married with kids. And surprisingly, they all lived on campus.

Le Bouveret is a small Swiss village, and the integration into the university residence life was smooth and very easy for me. When I joined, I instantly embraced the environment.


The institute organizes activities to meet people with the same interests, so it’s very easy to connect with others. Additionally, we study in small groups of about 12-15 people which helps us get to know each other quickly, but in the grade itself, there are over 50 people studying.

Le Bouveret is located in the French part of Switzerland and very close to many cities. It is 15 minutes from Montreux, 30 minutes from Lausanne and a 1-hour drive to Geneva.

The train is a very popular and affordable mode of transportation and since the school is only 5 minutes away from the station it is very easy to travel on the weekends.



In the past two years I have been to Geneva, Lausanne, Vevey, Zurich, Luzern, Basel, Bern, Brig, Verbier, Crans-Montana, Interlaken, Fribourg, Sion, Martigny, Neuchatel, Leysin and more!

And don’t forget that Switzerland is located in the heart of Europe, so you can reach many other European countries very quickly and easily.

It is a 1-hour flight or 4-hour train ride to Paris, 3-hour train to Milan, Lyon is only 2 hours by train, London is a 1.30-hour flight and Munich is a 1-hour flight. It’s impossible to live in Switzerland and not travel.

The beauty of this country is incredible, and the cleanliness and tranquillity of the country deserves respect.

If you haven’t visited Switzerland yet, I strongly recommend you add Switzerland to your travel bucket list.
