Unlocking Potential: Ignite Switzerland

At Dulwich College Shanghai Puxi, we believe in nurturing students not just academically but holistically, providing opportunities for them to grow, discover, and develop their full potential. Ignite: Switzerland is a testament to this commitment, offering our students a life-changing journey.

Those who embark on this remarkable adventure spend 12 weeks in the southeastern region of Switzerland. Here, they delve into an inspiring world of learning and self-discovery, set against the backdrop of awe-inspiring natural surroundings.

Ignite: Switzerland unfolds at the Hochalpines Institut Ftan AG (HIF), a part of the Dulwich College International family. Nestled in the Lower Engadin valley, it's just three hours from Zurich and two hours from Milan. This breathtaking location fosters a deep connection with nature, as students become stewards of the environment.
