Leading Swiss Boarding Schools to Visit Nigeria

Some leading Swiss boarding schools will be visiting Nigeria. When we think of Switzerland, our mind goes to ski resorts, lakes, the alps, chocolate, cheese, watches, the CERN laboratories, or even key industries such as banking and finance. This stunningly beautiful nation in the heart of Europe is also known for its world-class prestigious boarding schools, many of whom are coming to Lagos, Nigeria for a Swiss Boarding Schools Fair on Wednesday 16th November 2022.

The exhibition will take place from 3pm to 6pm at The Wheatbaker Hotel, Ikoyi, followed by a networking drinks reception from 6pm ‘til 8pm at the same venue.




It is hosted by Thomas Schneider, Consul General of Switzerland in Lagos and organised by Swiss Learning, an organisation that draws students from over 120 countries to its 14 boarding schools and two hotel management schools.

The Director of Swiss Learning, Christophe Xavier Clivaz, said: “This is an outstanding opportunity to meet senior leaders from the most prestigious boarding schools in Switzerland. Students can study a range of programmes such as the International Baccalaureate, American High School Diploma, AP Advanced Placement, A Levels, IGCSE for as short as a term, summer or an academic year or more.” Cradle of the International Baccalaureate

Swiss schools offer a holistic education that allows each child to find and develop their talents which will enable them to enter some of the best universities in the world. Mr. Schneider said: “In a constantly changing and globalized world, Switzerland offers schools where children can flourish in a safe, multicultural, and multilingual environment. The lifelong connections they make during their stay will be the foundations to join a long-term network of emerging leaders.”

Schools taking part in the event include Aiglon College, Brillantmont International School, Collège Beau Soleil, Collège du Léman, Institut auf dem Rosenberg, John F. Kennedy International School, La Garenne International School, and TASIS.“It is an honor for us to be able to visit Nigeria to present our schools.
