Meta information
Last modified: new data set (year 2023)
Data as of: 28.03.2024
Reference period: academic year
Spatial reference: Switzerland
Survey: Students and degrees of higher education institutions (SHIS-studex)
Please note: to obtain the total of all students or entrants, calculate the total of all selected variables. If only some of the items for a variable are selected, the total will not be equal to the total number of students or entrants.
Unit observed:
Students: A student is anyone registered at a Swiss university (university and institutes of technology, university of applied science and university of teacher education) for the autumn/winter semester of the university year being considered. The university and institutes of technology statistics only consider students registered at a university or institutes of technology. Double-registrations - a persons registered at two different universities - are removed according to strict criteria. The statistics published by the institutes of higher education themselves can, therefore, differ to those from the SIUS.
Ongoing corrections:
As our data are constantly updated, figures that have already been published may be altered at a later date. We always take the latest information into account.
