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.

Once per year, the Business School organises the International Days Event. Within the framework of the Swiss European Mobility Programme, we invite guest lecturers from our European partner universities.

The International Days are an opportunity for lecturers to

  • get a feeling of academic life at Bern University of Applied Sciences and our philosophy of an applied teaching style
  • network with our business lecturers as well as with other visiting lecturers from our partner universities
  • become acquainted with exchange opportunities
  • get to know more about the Swiss tertiary education system, the programmes offered by the Business School as well as tertiary education programmes offered by our partner universities

Deploying the “Team Teaching” approach between Business School teaching staff and guest lecturers,

  • it is possible to achieve greater content depth via joint teaching;
  • to assure tuition modules maintain quality
  • and to incorporate the International Days in the curriculum content of academic courses.
