For regulated professions (e.g. in healthcare, teaching and social work), the SUPSI Bachelor's degree (or in some cases the SUPSI Master's degree) is a qualifying degree that is recognised by the competent authorities at both cantonal and Swiss level.
Skills relevant to the workplace today and tomorrow
The skills developed during the study programme are defined in close cooperation with professional partners, industry experts and the academic community, also paying attention to inter-professionalism and transversal, digital and sustainability skills.
Numerous training activities require our students to perform in practical contexts, integrating theory and practical application. Internships, laboratories, accompanied professional practice workshops, simulations, in-company projects and other forms of education prepare them not only for the practice of their profession but also to cope with changes in their professional environment and to further develop their skills.
Professional lecturers and training partners
Vocational training is also guaranteed by the numerous SUPSI professional lecturers, who have been active in the profession for many years, and by the direct involvement of local, national and international organisations and professional partners.
SUPSI education recognises and enhances previous work and educational experience and enables students to further deepen and broaden their knowledge and skills, prepare for their next career move and continue their studies.
