The last two years were especially difficult for all of us and this year, like every year, the period from March to the end of June was the most demanding. We would like to thank all our staff for their great work.

We chose to work with Linguaskill because it is a test based on international standards, and therefore transparent and internationally recognizable.
We appreciate the ease of administration, as well as the possibility to use an external test with automated results, as they are impartial and not subject to debate.
The Business English modules’ content is extremely valuable for our hospitality and business management students.
Andrew Keohane, Senior Learning Support Manager
We have been working with Swiss Exams in Winterthur for many years. Our students take Cambridge English exams at levels B1 to C1, and the simple administrative processes make our work much easier. From exam registration to the prompt announcement of results everything runs flawlessly. The Swiss Exams team works absolutely reliably, is customer-oriented and, if necessary, flexible. We particularly appreciate the innovative strength of Swiss Exams, the continuous personal support and the transparent communication.

May I say that I’m a big fan of the Swiss Exams Access portal. I was sent an email that allowed me to set up my account very easily. The clarity of the layout as well as the information available are first class. Whoever designed and implemented that portal deserves a song of praise.
