Ukrainian refugees go to school in Switzerland

In this short video, we meet a group of Ukrainian refugees who are going to school in Switzerland. The refugees are looking forward to integrating into Swiss society and learning a new language.

Swiss schools are famous for their integration policies, which make it easy for refugees to learn the language and culture of Switzerland. This video shows how the refugees are getting to grips with their new school and how they're preparing to continue their education in Switzerland.

Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, around 13,000 Ukrainian children who have fled to Switzerland with their families have started schools across the country. We visited a school in Aubonne in western Switzerland to see how young refugees are getting on with the new system and the new language. 

Over the past year, the school has welcomed around 50 Ukrainian children. Some have already returned to their home country since first fleeing to Switzerland because of the war, while 30 others are still attending classes there.
