Financing SIM Studies We understand that financing a globally recognized Master’s programme can be complicated. Therefore, we are dedicated to informing you about the financial support available to help finance your studies. Higher education is subsidized by the Swiss government, resulting in low tuition fees, especially compared to other educational institutions of interest. A degree is an investment in personal development and in the future, enabling a SIM graduate to recover the tuition fees of the Master’s programme after the first few months of employment.
