Do you imagine yourself at Aiglon? Here's what you need to do.
Applications are accepted up to one year in advance, from September of the preceding year. Our office is always ready to help. Please email [email protected] or phone
+41 (0)24 496 6177 should you have any questions or require assistance throughout the process.
1. Make an Enquiry
The first step is always to make personal contact with us. You can contact the Admissions Office through the Online Enquiry Form, with email or by phone. In response to your enquiry we will send you further details about making an application and/or arranging a visit.
2. Visit Us
It is our recommendation to visit the school prior to making an application.
We offer two types of visits:
1. General Visit (1 hour 30 minutes)
An initial visit to tour the campus and meet with the Admissions Office. Time with the Director of Admissions and Advancement will also be scheduled.
2. Application Visit (4-5 hours)
A visit following submission of an application (see step 3) to include a tour of the campus, interview with the Head Master and Director of Admissions and Advancement as well as completion of Aiglon’s entrance assessments.
N.B. When scheduling, please confirm which type visit you require. We cannot guarantee the option to test and interview if this is not arranged prior to the visit.
3. Make an Application
We ensure that our admissions process is as personal as possible. Therefore, the required application form will be made available following an enquiry to the School.
An Application will only be considered when submitted in full. All documents are to be assembled and submitted electronically through email to [email protected].

5. Decision & Next Steps
Having completed the full admissions process, the application will be reviewed and we will notify you of a decision within 2 weeks. Following a successful application Aiglon will send an acceptance package by email. To secure the student’s place at the school the completed enrolment documents and enrolment deposit must be received by the specified date.
We will take care of Residence Permits for non-Swiss residents, but we cannot obtain visas on a students’ behalf: this must be done by parents. If the student holds a current passport from one of these countries, he/she can travel freely in and out of Switzerland. The Travel Office will obtain the student’s residency permit upon arrival in Switzerland: Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Brunei, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, England, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Monaco, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San-Marino, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and The Vatican.
Further information is available on the Swiss Federal Office for Migration website, www.bfm.admin.ch.
When a Swiss visa is required, the student must submit an application for a multi-entry visa by the end of May at the latest to the Swiss Embassy or Consulate in their own country. Please note that visas can take up to 12 weeks to process. Students are not able to begin studying in Switzerland until their visa has been approved, so it is crucial that an application is made at the earliest opportunity, to avoid important work being missed at the beginning of the new school year.
