RICHLAND, Wash. (AP) - Washington State University Tri-Cities will begin sending students to study in the largest city in Switzerland in fall 2016.

The Tri-City Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1daJ0BB ) that the university announced the exchange program with Zurich University of Applied Sciences.

After the exchange begins, a program awarding master’s degrees from both universities after one-year stints in Zurich and either the Tri-Cities or Pullman will follow in the next two years

Undergraduates will spend up to a semester in Zurich if accepted into the program. The Swiss institution teaches courses primarily in German, but it has a large English-based set of courses as well, so fluency in German won’t be needed.

Only a few students from each campus will be allowed participate each semester for the first few years.
