EPFL is an exceptional university that embodies excellence in education and research. With its world-class faculty, collaborative environment, and cutting-edge technology, it empowers students to thrive and innovate. Its commitment to pushing boundaries and tackling global challenges makes EPFL a true pioneer in shaping the future.
There are many EPFL associations for students who would like to do arts, philosophy, sports or have a hands-on experience, I personally worked with the Rocket Team EPFL and Junior Entreprise EPFL as a software engineer.
Each semester you can choose courses that best suits you and in each course several teaching assistants will make sure that students have a good understanding of the course material.
All in all, students are well-supervised, they can do as much activities as they want and it is easy to make new friends.View more
It is a great university, well ranked worldwide, with a beautiful view on the lac and the Alpes from the campus. The courses and the programs are really interesting, the teachers are smart, but you have to work a lot, specially during the first year of bachelor, which is a kind of selective year.View more
The campus is driven by the leading class research and innovation mindset. I really liked how you are surrounded by people from a variety of background and this school sets a new standard of quality in education. The cost of the school is funded in large proportion by the Swiss government, making it really affordable for students. I would criticize the quality of the teaching. All professors are researcher, and some of them don’t have an education background at all. It makes it really difficult sometimes to get it through. Thankfully we are surrounded by older students and teaching assistants that can help us.View more
