Transport

GEMS World Academy Switzerland has good transport links and is easily accessible by car. We also offer our own minibus service for students.

By car

We have excellent access to the local road network. If you are arriving by car, you will find the school run surprisingly stress-free thanks to our large and efficient drop‑off area.

By train

Access by train is simple thanks to Etoy station being just 200 metres from the school gates.

By bike

If students want to cycle to school, they can leave bikes in our secure, covered bicycle shelter.

By minibus

We offer a comprehensive door-to-door student minibus service operating at arrival and departure times and covering a radius of 25km from Etoy, reaching Nyon and Lausanne.

If you choose this option, transport fees can be paid as a lump sum or split over three terms.
