The Programme Specifications (PS Code) refer to detailed documents that outline the aims, learning outcomes, structure, and assessment methods of each academic program offered by an institution. These specifications serve as a blueprint for both teaching staff and students, ensuring clarity on what is expected throughout the course of study. They play a crucial role in maintaining academic standards and aligning the curriculum with the institution's educational objectives, accreditation requirements, and industry expectations, thereby facilitating a structured and comprehensive educational experience.

These documents cover all the programs that are carried out by MI Swiss itself and also by our academic partners.


Health and safety regulations are a set of rules and guidelines designed to prevent accidents and injuries in workplaces and public areas. They ensure a safe and healthy environment for employees, students, and the general public by addressing risks and implementing measures to mitigate them. These regulations cover a broad range of topics, including workplace safety, emergency procedures, equipment and facilities maintenance, and the management of hazardous substances. Compliance with these regulations is mandatory, and they are enforced by relevant authorities to protect well-being and promote a culture of safety.
