The University of Bern is a public institution. As a comprehensive university,
more than 1,500 teaching staff at eight faculties prepare students for their
future academic or professional career. The historic 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 about 17,500 students, the ambience is
friendly and personal.
Many sport and leisure time faculties are available in the near surroundings.
On top of this, a rich sightseeing and social programme is organised for all
international students throughout the semester.
