Universität Bern: Regional roots and international connections

The offer at the University of Bern meets the highest demands: It is characterized by top performances at an international level in select fields such as climate research, by a high quality of studies and life, and by strong regional roots. It is a full-scale university, where 350 professors teach and carry out research. The Bernese alma mater invests approximately 700 million Swiss francs per year in a wide spectrum of sciences, from German philology to medicine. Despite continuous growth, it is not a vast and crowded campus; almost everything is accessible by foot, which makes Bern the most logical choice among Swiss city universities. With its central geographic location and attractive range of 40 bachelor and 50 master studies, the Uni­versity of Bern attracts students from all linguistic areas of Switzerland and foreign countries.
