« Pursuing my studies remotely was a natural choice. »

« I have been ski-racing since I was very young, and I followed a school course designed for sportsmen and women. Indeed, before starting my studies at UniDistance Suisse, I attended highschool in Brig, where a sports course is available. I learned the discipline required to succeed in my studies, while performing at a sporting level. From then on, I knew precisely what was waiting for me when I started my university education remotely.

UniDistance Suisse offers me the freedom of study that I need, since I can advance the subject at my own pace, where I want and at any time. I can vary my working hours according to my training and my competitions.

 With my sporting commitments and my many trips, it would be impossible for me to carry out ‘standard’ studies while remaining competitive on skis. However, good organisation combined with rigour is essential for successful distance learning. The workload remains substantial and requires a great deal of investment.

It is stimulating to meet the other students during the grouping sessions. Although these sessions enable us above all to deepen and perfect our knowledge thanks to discussions with the teachers, the contact with the other students motivates me to learn when I am working on my own.

I am grateful to UniDistance Suisse for offering the opportunity for people like me to study, who have a schedule that is incompatible with a ‘normal’ university course. »

Frequently asked questions by athletes about distance studies

Distance learning gives you the flexibility you need to study alongside your athletic career.

You study at the time and day that suits you best, and in the place that is ideal for you: at home, at the hotel, on the train, on the plane…. Your study therefore adapts perfectly to your training and competition schedule.

In addition, studying can paradoxically help you in sport because you will find a balance by working your mind as much as your body.

You don't have classes in the classic sense of the term, but your teaching teams regularly invite you to virtual classes on Zoom or to face-to-face group sessions. You must attend three of these per term to register for the exams, which usually gives you a sufficient choice of dates.

Exams are always held on Saturday, at the end of each term. Right now they take place online. If you cannot attend due to training or competition, inform your dean who will exempt you. You can do this another time.

Yes, all our degrees are recognised in Switzerland and internationally, in the same way as those of Swiss universities, for example. UniDistance Suisse is a university institute recognised and accredited in accordance with the Swiss law on higher education (LEHE).

For many employers, people who successfully complete their employment studies demonstrate strong potential in terms of both soft skills and technical skills.
