Understanding Graduate Schools
Graduate schools offer structured, attractive education programs and provide excellent conditions for a successful doctorate through targeted measures and intensive support. These tend to be organized on an interdisciplinary and sometimes an interuniversity basis and offer doctoral students excellent opportunities for networking with other doctoral students and other researchers and specialists within Switzerland and abroad. Graduate schools are organized along subject lines and reflect the key areas within the University of Bern. In most cases, the programs are run in accordance with the principle of the ECT system and also comprise non-subject-specific qualification options in addition to subject-specific (disciplinary and interdisciplinary) and methodology-related courses.
