For foreign students wishing to study in Bern:
A complete dossier requires a tutoring agreement signed by a professor from the University of Bern. To obtain this, candidates are required to present their study programme or research project to a suitable professor at their host university (i.e., the University of Bern), together with their application for the above-mentioned agreement. The professor is free to accept or refuse candidates.
Applications submitted in the context of existing cooperation agreements will receive somewhat preferential treatment.
Candidates are pre-selected by their country’s relevant institution(s) as well as Switzerland’s diplomatic representative.
The Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students is in charge of the final selection.
