Switzerland is full of great hikes, mountains, lakes and medieval history. I have never visited such a scenic country that is so close to nature. The amount of research that happens in Switzerland in the field of Computer Science is unparalleled to any other country. Switzerland is definitely the place for research and higher studies.Vibhav Agarwal IIIT Bangalore / Research Intern – University of Fribourg

It was the best experience ever to spend three months at the University of Geneva. Because of ThinkSwiss Research Scholarship, I got exposure to a cutting-edge research environment and developed my scientific skills.
Geneva has a great natural environment conducive to research in the social sciences as it hosts several international organisations including blocks from the United Nations Office at Geneva, International Labour Organization, World Trade Organization, World Health Organization, the International Committee of the Red Cross, World Intellectual Property Organization, etc. Thanks to ThinkSwiss, this was my first venture abroad and I am really motivated to pursue research in Human Rights after this for further studies.Avantika Singh IIT Madras / Research Intern – The Graduate Institute of Geneva
Right from my very first day, I was very impressed by the level of organisation in the group. Each individual project in the lab was somehow contorted to fit the larger vision of the team. I highly recommend Switzerland, in particular for biomedical research, from my experience.Sharika Mahadevan IIT Madras / University of Bern
