I have a couple questions about teaching English in Switzerland:
1) Does the country of Switzerland require applicants to have a Uni Degree in order to qualify for a work visa?
3) If so, I have a college diploma in Film and Television Production and 10 years of experience working in the industry. Will this help me in lieu of a University degree?
2) I haven’t seen many TEFL job postings for Switzerland. How hard is it to find TEFL jobs in Switzerland (specifically Zurich)?
Thanks in advance for any advice!

Sorry dude but I must disappoint you. You will never get a job in this country as an English teacher, because everybody speaks English.
I work here as an interpreter but I am also fluent in Spanish and French. As far as visa goes, your best bet is to find someone to marry. I am American citizen with dual EU citizenship and that is how I managed to stay here. Other than that, your chances of staying here are pretty low.
Consider Germany they are in need of English teachers.
