Education at the Cutting Edge

Being a successful student means more than just getting a degree. Your studies shape the entire course of your life and prepare you for making responsible contributions to our shared future.
Eudcation at the Cutting Edge


The major challenges of our times – such as climate change, artificial intelligence and global crises – are not organized into distinct disciplines. Instead, they call for transdisciplinary and holistic solutions. With its seven faculties, UZH offers the broadest range of subjects in Switzerland – and therefore ideal opportunities for interdisciplinary exchange in teaching and study.
