Facts and Figures

Federal vocational baccalaureate

The Federal Vocational Baccalaureate (FVB) gives Federal VET Diploma holders further, more general education and entitles them to enrol in a Swiss university of applied sciences (UAS). If an FVB holder also takes the University Aptitude Test (UAT), then enrolment in a cantonal university or one of Switzerland's two federal institutes of technology is also possible.

Completion rates for 2021

At the beginning of 2023, the State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation (SEFRI) decided not to republish the «Facts & Figures» brochure in its usual form. 

For this reason, the 2022 version will continue to be used until 2024, when the new concept has been developed.

Complete set of slides

The charts in the SERI brochure have been compiled into a set of slides, which can very easily be included in presentations.
