Why are so many people moving to Switzerland from the UK?
Switzerland is widely regarded as one of the best places to live in the world. It often wins awards for its clean environment, successful economy, and modern infrastructure. More than 40,000 UK expats already live in Switzerland and the rate of migration from the UK appears to be increasing! The most common reasons why so many people move to Switzerland from the UK include:
Switzerland is a family friendly country
The Swiss enjoy a lifestyle that is very healthy, satisfying and safe. Because the natural environment is pristine, most Swiss citizens spend their weekends outdoors — hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing or playing sports. There are many incredible activities and sightseeing opportunities around the country. It is also a safe county with a very low crime rate. These elements combine to make Switzerland a great destination for families.
The economy is very strong
Switzerland is internationally recognised as an important location for international finance and banking. The economy also has strong agriculture, industrial, pharmaceutical and tourism industries. The strength of the economy means that the unemployment rate is low and the government is well funded. If you are going to work while staying in Switzerland, you will be happy to hear that wages are high and taxation is quite low.
Switzerland is a foodies paradise!
Switzerland benefits from being in close proximity to France, Italy and Germany when it comes to food. It is easy to find delicious fresh food in Swiss supermarkets and there are many excellent restaurants located throughout the country.
An interesting and diverse culture
Swiss culture is heavily influenced by neighbouring countries including Germany, Italy and France. The country adopts the best parts of their culture and integrates it into the Swiss way of doing things! You will also find thousands of UK expats happily living in Switzerland. This leads to the country having an incredible mix of cultural influences in their music, food, dialects and art.
The public transport system is excellent
The Swiss government is one of the most well-organised and forward-thinking in the EU. They are very smart when it comes to planning infrastructure, which is why Switzerland has excellent public transport. It is easy to move between locations in Switzerland or to travel to surrounding countries.
Switzerland has a fantastic education system
Switzerland has a reputation for being the country where wealthy Americans and Europeans send their children to be educated. This is because the public and private schools are well funded and provide children with an excellent education. The education system ranks above the UK system for maths, reading and science.
Typically, children will attend 1 to 3 years of kindergarten followed by 4 to 6 years of primarschule (primary school), 3 to 5 years of sekundarschule (secondary school), and 3 to 4 years of sekundarschule II (upper secondary school).
Some of the best schools in Switzerland include:
- American School in Switzerland
- Swiss Alpine Secondary School
- St George’s School in Switzerland

- Zurich International School
