Campus in Saas-Fee

The EGS Campus is surrounded by the magnificent view of some of Switzerland's highest mountains, providing a unique learning atmosphere for the community of artists, dancers, poets, filmmakers, musicians, coaches, therapists, and educators.

Students enrolled in the Arts, Health, and Society Division are immersed into a fascinating field to unlock deep introspective understanding, master techniques of interpersonal relationships, and express these new ideals of the self through Movement, Voice, Sound, and Art.

Stepping outside of the classroom, students are greeted by majestic fields of wildflowers, the rushing sounds of waterfalls, and nearby trails leading straight into nature.

This welcoming community provides an intensive learning atmosphere while maintaining a safe, creative container for everyone to shape, share, and grow.

Campus in Valletta

The academic experience at The European Graduate School / EGS revolves around its annual sessions in Saas Fee, Switzerland, and Valletta, Malta.

Valletta is a Unesco World Heritage Site and is the designated European Capital Of Culture In 2018. It is the capital of the European Union’s southernmost and smallest member state, Malta, which gained independence from Britain in 1964. Situated about 96 km from Italy, and 290 km from North Africa, it comprises seven islands, of which only three are inhabited: Malta, Gozo, and Comino.

A crossroads of cultures and ideas due to its unique geo-political location, Malta possesses an immensely rich historical legacy. The earliest traces of inhabitance date back approximately 7.000 years ago to a people who are thought to have migrated from Sicily. This migration was followed by the “temple builders,” Phoenicians, Greeks, Romans, Arabs, and the Normans.
