International Office

The Bern University of Applied Sciences BFH is an international, multilingual university, with students and lecturers from many different countries. It has partnerships with a series of universities abroad and cooperates with international partners in a large number of projects and in research activities.

The International Office takes an integrative approach in advancing the goals and objectives for internationalisation within the Business School, while at the same promoting cultural awareness and diversity, encouraging dialogue, open minds, broadening perspectives, and developing intellectual curiosity and skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world.

Furthermore, we endeavour to support internationalisation within the university with a range of different activities and programmes as well as provide mobility opportunities for students and employees in their academic pursuits.

The mission and vision of the International Office are carried out through the following activities:

  • Developing and maintaining relationships with universities abroad.
  • Providing information on exchange and mobility programmes for students, faculty and staff.
  • Facilitating the integration of international students.
  • Planning and organising international events.
  • Enhancing the university’s international image.
