Information for students who want to spend a semester at the PH Zug.

Are you studying at one of our partner universities and interested in spending a varied and enriching semester as a visiting student at PH Zug or in doing a four-week school internship in the Zug region? Would you like to learn more about the Swiss education system, broaden your practical experience and further develop your skills as a teacher?
If so, then why not apply as a visiting student to the University of Teacher Education Zug, which with approximately 350 students claims to be a transparent institution with a lively culture, personal atmosphere and future-oriented philosophy. Visiting students often mention the strong emphasis there is on applied studies in the form of numerous school internships during their stay, let alone all the support and the high quality lessons they receive.
International Teacher Education students on primary level can choose from a variety of English or bilingual (English/German) courses in autumn semester. German speaking students can choose from regular courses in both semesters. Please have a look at the detailed course programme for more information.
