University of Bern

More than 4,600 teaching staff in eight faculties prepare students for their future academic or professional career. The study programs and various graduate schools and centres cover fields from economics and social science, humanities, sciences, law, medicine and veterinary medicine, human sciences and theology. The roots of the University of Bern go back to 1528. Today, most of the 160 institutes are located within walking distance of the historic main building. The infrastructure is of very high quality and, thanks to its relatively small size of 18,000 students, the ambience is friendly and personal. Furthermore, courses in almost any sport discipline are open to all students.

The Swiss are very open, no prejudices. And the nature, wow!
