Liechtenstein is one of the smallest countries in the world and is a true treasure. Sparely populated in Central Europe, it is the perfect place for a student who wants to explore that part of the world. With one of the world’s lowest unemployment rates, opportunities abound in Liechtenstein. International students will get a high-quality education and a truly European experience.
Liechtenstein has four higher education institutions, all benefiting from a well-balanced staff-student ratio.
