Tourism Summer School
Are you studying tourism and would like to combine vacations with your studies? The University of Applied Sciences of the Grisons (UAS Grisons) offers a Tourism Summer School in the inspiring Swiss Alps, located close to St.Moritz. The academic and practical contents covered in the study programme allow you to expand your knowledge and skills in the areas of tourism and management.


Students of our partner universities pay no tuition fee. You only have to cover board and lodging. For all other international students, the costs are CHF 1,850.

The Tourism Summer School will take place at the Grisons College of Professional Education and Training in Tourism (HFT Graubünden) in the Swiss Alps, just 10 minutes away from St.Moritz.

The campus of HFT Graubünden and the surrounding Swiss Alps provide you with a wide range of sports and leisure activities.
