Studying at the University of Bern opens up opportunities to study at other universities across Europe. The University of Bern has signed Erasmus-Sokrates-Treaties with over 120 universities in the European Community, allowing students the opportunity to undertake studies over one or two semesters at any one of these universities, while remaining enrolled with the University of Bern.
Limited financial scholarships are available to students from EU countries.
You can find out more about the Erasmus exchange by talking to the Erasmus coordinator, Mathias Bremgartner
Applicants from universities abroad who wish to spend one or two semesters at the University of Bern can find further information on the homepage of the registration office or the International Relations.
Students who went on exchange make both positive and negative experiences with fellow students, the professors or the teaching staff, the city, the food, the weather and so on. The judgement of their stay is seldomly only good, but …
… almost all students think that it was worth it. The change of place and environment gave them new impulses for their life and their studies, in short, they see that the exchange has become an important aspect of their curriculum.
