Prospective students Holders of Swiss Matura

Science taster day

At the taster day for high school pupils, prospective students can find out what it is like to study Chemistry/Biochemistry, Geology, Computer Science, Mathematics or Physics. The taster day for high school pupils is intended to encourage women to apply for scientific and mathematical degree programs. The idea is to get rid of stereotypes and inspire young women to go on to study sciences.

The taster day for high school pupils is a joint project organized by the Office for Gender Equality and the Faculty of Science at the University of Bern. Pupils are invited to spend a day attending taster classes in Physics, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics or Geology, giving them an insight into studying at the university as well as an idea of potential career paths.
