Registration and check lists

With good preparation, it is easier to deal with one or two "surprises" that might be encountered when moving. 

We will be more than happy to advise you personally and send you an overview (pdf) for the periods "Before arrival" and "After arrival". The check list is primarily intended for researchers and lecturers appointed by the University of Bern.

We would appreciate the following information for your registration and mailing of the checklists:

  • Your name (indicating "Mr" / "Ms" is helpful)
  • Nationality
  • Current place of residence (country)
  • Recruiting institute at the University of Bern
  • contact person at the institute
  • your "status" as employee (e.g. PhD student, postdoc, professor etc.)
  • Scheduled first day of work and probable length of stay
  • Subsequent immigration of family planned (who? how many?)
