    Postgraduate Scholarships for foreign students wishing to study in Bern

    The Swiss Government awards a range of scholarships to foreign students through the Federal Commission for Scholarships for Foreign Students (FCS): university scholarships (Swiss universities and Federal Institutes of Technology), arts scholarships (schools of music and fine arts) and scholarships for universities of applied sciences (UAS). These scholarships provide graduates from all fields with the opportunity to pursue postgraduate studies or research in Switzerland at a public funded university or recognised institution.

    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.

    For further information and a list of countries please contact the Federal Commission for Foreign Students (FCS) or theSwiss Embassy in your home country.
