Salary and budget

University of Neuchâtel salaries are displayed on the human resources website : displayed salaries are gross salaries, from which you must deduce social charges (16%) paid by the employee, as well as taxes (deducted at the source or paid by the employee).

Salaries may seem high compared to what you could expect in your home country, but expenses in Switzerland are also higher than elsewhere. Switzerland is one of the most expensive countries in the world ( salary and expense comparison ) but also one of the most pleasant to live in.

To get an idea of what a family budget is like in Switzerland, refer to the budget charts of the “ french-speaking consumer federation ”.
