Mobility between Swiss universities
If you are registered at a Swiss university and have successfully completed your first year of studies, the mobility agreement between Swiss universities will allow you to study for 1-2 semesters at the University of Bern. You will stay registered at your home university and continue to pay tuition fees there. There are no tuition fees due to University of Bern.
You apply to make use of the mobility agreement between Swiss universities through your home university. Contact your International Office for more details.
If you only want to attend specific courses at the University of Bern, or if you want to complete an entire minor at the University of Bern, register for minor mobility.
