    Switzerland is classified as one of the safest countries in the world. Therefore, I personally feel that Lucerne is my second home after all. Easy transports links to everywhere, variety of shops that students can find, a different type of nightlife that students can enjoy during the weekend, beautiful old city and lake just near BHMS where students can spend their leisure time.

    Each person that I came into contact with, whether it was a stranger or school mate, was very welcoming and warm-hearted.
    I felt as though I didn't need to worry about being far away from my family. The country, the school and the environment is very safe.
    The atmosphere and the sceneries are to die for - absolutely breath taking!

    I feel very safe in Lucerne and everywhere in Switzerland! No doubt about that! Due to the language barrier, the Swiss people will always put in the effort to greet you or to offer their assistance when needed.

    There are bus stops every 150 metres in Lucerne, however, I tend not to use them as it's nice to walk around Lucerne with its fresh and cool breeze.

    All essential items are provided within a 15-minute walk from the campus and shops are easily accessible. Like most places in Europe, bars & clubbing are often the nightlife found in the city.
