If you are interested in studying at UZH and would like to gain a first-hand impression of a study program, then take the opportunity to sit in on a lecture. Sitting in on lectures is the perfect chance to:
Attend with Friends: Perhaps you already know someone in your program of interest who can accompany you to a lecture? Your friends are sure to be able to recommend suitable lectures, and you will feel more at ease if you are in the company of a university student – or even a group of students.
Find a Buddy: If you don’t already know someone who can accompany you on campus, then ask the UZH project team to link you up with a buddy from your program of interest. The UZHGYM project team links prospective students with current students in various programs so that they can visit lectures together and discuss the demands and expectations of university life.

Ask the Advisory Centers or Student Organizations: If you can’t find a buddy for your preferred study program, you can always get in touch with the advisory centers of the faculties to ask which lectures might be suitable for you to sit in on. The various student organizations, which are run by students from the relevant study program, might also be able to help you find someone who can be your buddy.
