Berne: Education

Berne is an especially attractive centre of education - and its university's international top ranking in certain subjects is not the only reason why, with the high quality of study and life and worthwhile networking between business and political circles being the other plus points. In addition to the University, Berne offers a broad network of educational opportunities with a practical bent at the Berne University of Applied Science. Disciplines taught there include engineering, information technology, architecture, building and wood, economics and administration, health, social work, the arts, agriculture and sport.
