The purpose of the Register is the creation and management of a registry of private schools in Switzerland which are serious and trustworthy and which communicate this to interested circles.
The criteria and conditions for admission into the Register are listed in a separate document outlining the rules of procedure for admission.
The Register serves as a contact point and information centre for Swiss and foreign students in the case that problems arise with a school entered in the Register.
Additionally, the Register serves to protect Switzerlands reputation as a centre of high quality educational services and the reputation of its private educational institutions. It also works to advance the development of diversity in education and Switzerland as a tourist destination.
