Making contact for the first time

Early registration, by the end of April, is recommended as the classes are allocated in May and it may no longer be possible to offer all training models. However, applications for the 2020/21 school year are still possible, even at short notice. We do our utmost to ensure that we can offer the most suitable timetable.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us by phone.

Thanks to the cooperation with FC Zurich, FCZ players can attend SAZ football training sessions free of charge (see training costs without training).

Players from the FCZ partner club Red Star and other top clubs also enjoy attractive cost reductions:

As our contribution to the promotion of women’s football, the SAZ grants a reduction of CHF 1200.00 per year to up-and-coming young female footballers from all clubs during the first two years of the education.

It is possible to attend only the football training programme – but only for very talented footballers. Four training sessions per week are offered over 42 weeks (there is no training on Wednesday). The high-level training sessions can also be booked monthly or weekly. The maximum cost is CHF 9000.00 per season.


General Information

  • A 2% discount (rebate) is granted for advance payment of the fee for a whole year. The discount is 3% if the total education costs are paid in advance.

  • The costs for all learning materials (textbooks etc.) are not included in the school fees.
  • For learners in the M profile, additional basic school costs of CHF 200.00 / month arise in the first three years of training. The additional costs for projects and language certificates in the M profile (around CHF 4000.00) will be invoiced directly by the KV Zurich Business School.

Internship salary

From the third year of their education onwards, students receive an internship wage during their practical in-company training and can thus substantially co-finance the third and fourth year of their education. The monthly wage recommended to the internship companies is around CHF 1000.00 in the first year of the internship – and around CHF 1300.00 in the second year of the internship (whereby in the second year, the amount of the agreed percentage of work is also important).

The education costs for school-based and vocational education can be co-financed, if necessary, with the help of the following institutions or facilities:
