 Supporting our work

Academic Partnership Programme 

We value collaboration as a key aspect of our academic strategy, and recognize the benefits of such collaboration, both to our institution and to our partner institutions and their students. Academic institutions may apply to join the METLAB Academic Partnership Program (APP) by completing our online application form (below). Once we receive your initial application our partnership manager will work with you in order to establish the partnership. Academic partner institutions enter into an agreement to deliver and/or assess programmes in partnership with METLAB Switzerland leading to a Swiss award at undergraduate or postgraduate level. 

Individual Associate Membership

As a non-profit organization, members are a vital part of our association. Membership of the association is one of the ways you can support our work. Membership fees are particularly targeted at supporting access to training for those experiencing financial hardship and who otherwise would not be able to access our services.

Members of the association can register free at our annual conference and monitor panels, workshops and opening keynote presentations. Members also benefit from discounts on all our training programmes.

Membership fees are set at CHF200.00 and run for twelve months from the month it is taken out (students receive a 50% discount). Please note that your membership fee must be paid in full before you can benefit from membership privileges. To apply for membership please complete our online application form (below). Membership fees should be paid directly to our bank (account details at the bottom of this page). We look forward to welcoming you as a member.
