What are the benefits of studying at the UAS Grisons?

Chur – the city of students
Some 82.2% of our students come from outside the canton, which results in flat-sharing communities made up of students from all study programmes as well as life-long friendships.
Diverse programme of sporting activities
The sporting activities on offer in Chur help students to unwind from their studies. Moreover, they have an opportunity to try new sports for the first time and make new friends in the process.
Venues for a study break
A perfect example is the Werkstatt Chur, an urban bar with a cultural framework programme right in the centre of the Old Town.
Practical tuition
For example, sport management students go to the Mountain Bike World Cup in Lenzerheide for a glimpse behind the scenes and to talk with the organisers of the event.
Nature on your doorstep

You will get to know the Director of Studies and/or Course Assistant personally and have the opportunity to ask questions. The information events take place in different locations in Switzerland and close to the border outside Switzerland so that you do not need to travel to Chur if you live outside the region.
