The Archaeology Student Association is the association of all students of the departments of Mediterranean Archaeology and Near Eastern Archaeology of the Institute of Archaeology. We primarily try to promote contact and exchange among the students, for example with excursions and joint visits to exhibitions, but also with barbecues, apéros, or film evenings. We would like to welcome you on the day of the start of your studies to get to know you a little better. If you have any questions about the degree programme or the subject, just contact us or drop by the institute.

Faculty of Science

We, the Biology Student Association, are on the one hand the representatives of the biology students towards the department and the faculty. On the other hand, we will support you with advice and assistance during your studies. Whether it's about old exams, examples of term papers, questions about your studies, or problems with lecturers, you will find support here.

First of all, we would like to make it a little easier for all prospective biologists to get started in university life. On the day of the beginning of your studies, you will be welcomed by us and have the opportunity to ask pressing questions. Immediately afterwards, we from the faculty student association will guide you through all the areas and rooms where you will have lectures in the first semester and will answer your questions (please check all these dates again in the leaflet before the TdS in case unexpected changes have been made). For more detailed information about your first day, please refer to the leaflet that will be sent to your home by post (but can also be downloaded from www.unibe.ch), the Biology Department website (www.biology.unibe.ch) and the Student Council website (fsbiobern.com).

The beginning of your studies is always the beginning of a new phase in your life, which probably all of you look forward to with one eye smiling and one eye crying. Here are some tips to help you get off to a smooth start:

Don't panic, we were all unable to see the wood for the trees on the first day. Don't panic, no one sees the forest on the first day with so many trees! This is completely normal and will change,  we promise. At the very beginning, only these two buildings are important for you: the Chemical Institute at Freiestrasse 3 (lectures in UG113) and the ExWi (Exact Sciences, located right next to the main building on the Grossen Schanze).

In the first lectures, the textbooks are announced and the scripts are distributed. For the latter, it would be good to have some money with you. You do not need to purchase any materials in advance. And keep the receipts for the books for your tax bill! By the way: We would also like to welcome new members from your year on our board so that we can deal with your questions and concerns quickly and directly, and so that we can continue to run the faculty student association.

Wir wünschen euch einen tollen Einstieg und ein spannendes Studium!

Faculty of Human Sciences 

The faculty student association consists of all students of Educational Science (major and minor).

Faculty of Science 

Welcome! On behalf of all previous geography students, we would like to extend a warm welcome to the new students. It is great that you have chosen such a diverse and exciting subject.

Who we are and what we do: The Geography Student Association consists of all geography students (major and minor) at the University of Bern. Once a year at the general assembly, the board and the committee members are elected. The board represents the students' interests towards the Department of Geography, the Faculty of Science as well as towards the SUB. The Geography Student Association has a seat on the board of directors of the Institute of Geography and other commissions. Wherever the concerns of the students are affected, the student council strives pragmatically to achieve the best possible solution - be it the development and revision of curricula and regulations, the appointment of new professors, or various general problems and questions that arise during the semester. In order for us to be able to successfully advocate for the concerns of the students, however, we depend on people getting actively involved in the board. We would therefore be extremely pleased if people from the first semester were to get involved in the student association's work! Feel free to contact us if we have sparked your interest.

Where can you ask questions about and around geography studies? Visit the information event of the Department of Geography on the day of the beginning of your studies! We will also be present at this event to answer your questions. Don't hesitate to bring up any uncertainties or questions. There are (almost) no stupid questions!

You can find important information about studying geography on the Institute's homepage under "Studies". Further useful information and tips about studying can be found on our homepage:

German Studies

Faculty of Humanities

The German Studies Student Association is the political association of German Studies students at the University of Bern. As a student of German Studies, you are automatically a member of the association and are therefore entitled to vote on issues at the general meetings, to elect the board members, and to be elected to the board.

The board is responsible for the main work of the association: it takes care of the contact between the teaching staff and the students, it intervenes in matters concerning the institute (choice of professors, curriculum planning, etc.), and tries to inform the students about these matters. In addition, it is his concern to keep the spirit of the institute cheerful and happy. To this end, it runs the institute's own coffee shop and organizes German language and literature festivals and other fun events. For first-semester students, it is important to know that the association always has an open ear and a helping hand for people with questions regarding their studies (see list of contact addresses). An information stand is available for first-year students on the first day of studies, and a first-semester night is also organized during the semester.

The board is constituted from the history student body and represents the students. Our main tasks are:

  • Representing the interests of students: We are represented at the departmental conferences, take part in commissions (filling new chairs, etc.). We also support the SUB (Student Body of the University of Bern) in its political work. Once a semester, there is a general meeting (Vollversammlung VV) of the association.
  • Contacts between students: For years we have been running a coffee room at the History Institute, where various daily newspapers and magazines are available. The Kafistübli should also serve as a meeting hub in the Institute: Students, representatives of the Mittelbau, and the lecturers can meet there to exchange ideas.
  • Information flow within the institute: The board regularly informs about its activities via notices in the institute and on the association's homepage. Folders in the Kafistübli and on the website contain information on mobility and exchange programmes, university policy, contacts with other universities, women's issues (gender studies, projects), and various history topics such as exhibitions, historical city tours, and archives. The most important and up-to-date information on and about studying can also be found on the website.
  • The history student association is also present on the day of the start of studies.
  • Campusfestival and other events: The history student association organizes events (Histfest, film evenings, Histbier, ...) and/or arranges jobs and projects for interested students.

Latin American Studies

Faculty of Humanities

The LAS student association considers itself to be the link between students and lecturers. We work to ensure that students' concerns are taken up by the responsible bodies and thus try to continuously develop the relatively young degree programme in Latin American Studies. At the same time, we are in regular contact with the professors and ensure that interesting offers such as workshops, events and internships in the field of LAS are communicated to the students at an early stage. To promote exchange and cohesion among LAS students, we organise a Latino event once a semester and also attend non-university events on Latin America. Due to the small number of LAS students, concerns, questions and uncertainties about the study programme and beyond can be discussed quickly and easily. We, the LAS student association, look forward to a lively exchange and the pursuit of common interests.



Faculty of Humanities

The Linguistics student associations comprises all students of the subject. We are relatively small, which leads to greater and more cordial group cohesion. Every semester, we organise various small events such as a scavenger hunt or a film evening, with the highlight being the graduation party in December or May.

Faculty of Medicine

Dear medical students

Welcome to the Faculty of Medicine! A new world awaits you. Some things will change, good things will come, good things will go. Right from the start: learning will reach dimensions that have hardly ever been reached at a Gymnasium before. Anatomical structures galore and a number of diseases whose names are rarely if ever pronounced by non-medical students. In Bern, problem-oriented teaching awaits you in the first 3 years and offers you an unexceptional amount of clinical experience thereafter. Self-study, independence and self-discipline are required. Does anyone help you with this? Of course. As a SUB member, you are automatically a member of the Fachschaft Medizin (FSMB). Besides the patient cases in the tutorials during the group discussion on e.g. H.M. with anterograde amnesia, the exciting dissection course, the other practical training and all the other instructive things, you will also encounter some hurdles during your time at the Medical Faculty of the University of Bern. Questions will arise, faster and more demanding than the desire for a semester break. "How do I master the beginning, how do I find my way around?", some may say. The FSMB will introduce itself in the first lectures and give the first helpful tips. You will need an apron for the practicals and for the preparation course. That's why the FSMB organises an apron sale in the first weeks, where the aprons are sold at cost price. But what happens when the weekend approaches? Continue learning? Or combine sport, fun and top-notch partying for once? Every year in autumn, our student association organises a sports weekend where you can sweat while playing, sunbathing and dancing. In winter, there is a regular skiing weekend with lots of fun and games. The Medifest in spring has long since become a legend and is traditionally organised by 3rd year students. And your helping hands are more than welcome at the blood donation campaign we organise. If you still have time to represent the interests of students to lecturers and institutions together with or on the board of the FSMB, please get in touch. We need everyone. To call the medical students in Bern a big family may be an exaggeration, but we all fight together. But not really a fight, but an educational, exciting and challenging time at the Faculty of Medicine awaits you. Whether it is sitting on university committees, providing information services, lending and selling equipment or working with various partners from the world of medicine, the FSMB is behind and beside you. We do everything to make you feel at home as quickly as possible.

Studying consists to a large extent of solitary work. Searching for literature, reading, learning, writing, etc. As exciting and indispensable as this may be, studying cannot and must not consist exclusively of this. Among other things, students of a subject can organise themselves, and there are many reasons to do so. The more the wind of austerity blows in the face of the university, the more urgent it becomes for a student association to represent its political interests to the outside world. We must make use of the little "power" we have. Fortunately, the cooperation between the student association and the lecturers at our institute is very cooperative. We have to make use of the opportunity to have a say in the planning of events and the organisation of lessons. It is a great concern of ours to make it as easy as possible for the first-semester students to immerse themselves in university life after their jump into the cold water. Finally, we also want to give the students the opportunity to get to know each other a little better outside of the classroom situation. To put it in the words of our Institute President Anselm Gerhard: "A student association is only as good as the parties it celebrates." We wish you all a good start!

Eastern European Studies

Faculty of Humanities

The Eastern European Studies programme in Bern and Fribourg is particularly interesting and versatile because of its interdisciplinary nature and the involvement of two universities. The study programme contains hardly any compulsory courses and offers a correspondingly large amount of freedom to tailor one's studies precisely to one's individual areas of interest. However, these liberties also entail an increased coordination effort and require a certain amount of initiative on the part of the students.Every student of Eastern European Studies is automatically a member of the student association. Accordingly, the activities of the student association are designed so that all students can benefit from them. The board primarily represents the interests and concerns of the student body to the outside world. At the same time, it is the first point of contact for problems that experience has shown can arise during the course of studies. At least once a semester, we also organise an aperitif where students and lecturers of Eastern European Studies can exchange ideas and get to know each other better in an informal setting. We are always available to answer questions about the programme. We are also happy to receive concerns, input, and ideas. Therefore, please do not hesitate to contact us. And if anyone would like to get involved in Eastern European Studies, the board is happy to welcome new members.



Faculty of Humanities

As soon as you are enrolled in one of the major or minor study programmes offered by the philosophy department, you belong to the philosophy student association. The board of the philosophy student association consists of students from all semesters and works for your interests. It represents the students towards the institute, organises events on a regular basis for the exchange between the students and serves as a point of contact for questions, wishes or difficulties concerning the studies. In addition, the board has the opportunity to participate in university politics, for example, in filling professorships or with nominations for seats on university commissions. The board is elected at the semi-annual general assembly at the beginning of each semester. Come along and get involved in shaping the student association.  

You can find information about the work of the board, current events and offers as well as tips and helpful links for studying on our website. There is also a weekly newsletter that keeps you up to date on interesting lectures and other offers, also outside of the student association.

We would like to introduce ourselves briefly: The physics and astronomy student association looks after the specific needs of the students at the university and has a seat on the various committees in which decisions are made about professorial successions, study plans and the like. The student association also aims to make it easier for first-year students to get started. So that the flow of information to you does not stop, a commented lecture preview will be published for the new semester, and we have set up a website with useful information. All physics and astronomy students automatically belong to the student association. The board is run on a voluntary basis by about ten students.

Slavic Studies

Faculty of Humanities

The Slavic Studies Department at the University of Bern is small but fine. On the other hand, Slavists get to know each other very quickly: the institute's rooms on the 3rd floor offer us the opportunity to sit together, chat, discuss, learn and exchange experiences.

As a student of Slavic Studies, you are automatically a member of our student association. The task of the student association is to represent the interests of the students towards the university. Since we can count on very good cooperation with the institute management, we have numerous opportunities to introduce our wishes and suggestions. The board is also always present at institute meetings and has a say, so that important decisions at the level of the institute management are also discussed with us. In order to find out about the needs of our fellow students, to exchange the most important information and to confirm or elect new board members, we therefore hold a general meeting every semester. You can find out when and where this takes place by e-mail, both via SlavList and via the student association office of the SUB.

The Bernese student association works closely with the Slavic Studies student association of our partner university in Fribourg. This joint activity results in film evenings every semester, where we watch Slavic films together in the original language with subtitles, start-of-semester aperitifs, a barbecue party every year at the end of May and occasionally also larger events where people can meet outside of everyday university life.

We would be very happy if you would also drop by and we can get to know you better! If you have any general questions about the Slavic Studies programme or the Slavic Studies student association, please do not hesitate to contact the board by e-mail

Social Sciences

Faculty of Business, Economics, and Social Sciences

The SoWi student association includes all students of the Bachelor's programme in Social Sciences, as well as all Master's students in Political Science and Sociology. We are the point of contact for any questions regarding timetables, study regulations or exams and are happy to help students from student to student to find their way through the university jungle. We especially want to make it easier for first-semester students to get started in university life and therefore offer a specific SoWi tutorial together with the economics student association.

Prospective SoWi students can also contact us at any time, ask us questions or sit in on a lecture with us. Our goal is to promote exchange between students of all semesters outside the lecture halls and to help shape the social part of university life. Therefore, we organise several events per semester, such as a SoWi film evening or a visit to the Bundeshaus. In addition, we want to highlight possible career prospects for SoWi graduates as part of the guest lecture series "Was machsch de mau mit däm" ("What are you doing with this?"), and thus put an end to this annoying question. You can find more information about the events on our Facebook page or in the SoWi newsletter. We look forward to hearing your opinions, ideas and suggestions and hope to meet you soon at our general meeting or at an event!

Sport Science

Faculty of Human Science

Our student association is made up of students of sports science from the Bachelor's and Master's degree programmes and is the elected representative of all sports students. It meets regularly at board meetings to discuss upcoming problems, activities and events. The board is open to all members of the sports science student body. The aim is to have at least one student from each semester represented on the board. Within the board there are different (task) areas, which are distributed among the individual board members according to their interests.

The task of the student association is primarily to safeguard the interests of the members of the sports science student association at the institute and university level. It is represented in the study commission as well as in the examination committee for the aptitude test and thus forms the link between the students and the ISPW. In the autumn semester, the student association is involved in organising the Master's aperitif and the Fresher's Days, which serve as information events for current and future students. In addition, it organises events that are intended to enrich the study of sport in social terms, such as the Sportträff-Apéro, the Grill&Beach on the Aare, the Sport Day and other events. Finally, the student association is also an information and contact point for current and future sports students. If you have any problems or questions about studying sport and the university, you can contact us at any time.

Theology and interreligious studies

Faculty of Theology

Welcome! The student association for theology and interreligious studies is managed by a committee of more than ten students who represent the interests of the students within our faculty. Twice a semester, all students are invited to a plenary meeting, where the committee reports anything happening in the various functions of the student association. For example, there are two delegates who sit in at the faculty meetings to advocate for students and then report the current topics.

The students are informed via newsletter-styled email about events, job openings or anything that could be of interest. Student association events are for example regular after-work-beer events or the annual night for cabaret and other kinds of art. These events are meant for all students of the faculty and are also frequented by professors and doctorate candidates.

On the first floor of the faculty in room A103 is our “Kafistübli” (our very own small coffee kitchen). It is looked after by the student association, and you can usually meet other students there. Vis-à-vis in the hallway there is a bulletin board with current information or flyers. On our website you find the e-mail addresses of those responsible for the various functions of the faculty and at the very bottom of the site is a very handy document for all new students. Unfortunately, this is all in German, but you can contact us in English, see below.

Faculty of Humanities

We represent the students of World Arts and World Literature at the Center for Cultural Studies (CCS) and our primary concern is to help with study-related problems. As a student, you are most welcome to take part in the General Assembly which is held once a semester to set goals and possible course of action for the forthcoming semester. Since our programmes are interdisciplinary in nature, we look forward to collaborating with other institutes and departments. And, last but not least, we organize a Fresher's Party and other get-together events to have fun and do some networking.

Dental Medicine

Faculty of Medicine

Welcome to dental school at the University of Bern!

As you may already know, dentistry students spend the first two years of preclinical studies together with the people from human medicine and their council (fsmb). From the third year of study onwards, it's off to the university’s dental clinics (zmk bern), where you finally get to know the real study of dentistry. From then on, the dental students officially belong to the dental student council (Fachschaft Zahnmedizin) *Woop! Woop!

We organize a few parties every semester (costume party, beer pong, etc.) and advocate for the needs of the students in everyday study life.

If you have any questions about studying or need a motivational kick for this exciting craft-academic subject, please feel free to contact us via the e-mail address.

We wish you a successful pre-clinic and see you soon at the zmk.

Nice-to-know for those interested: In the student clinic at the zmk bern you can get dental treatment at a reasonable price. Whether for fillings, crowns or wisdom teeth extraction, we are always looking for new patients! The whole thing is supervised by trained professionals, takes a little longer but is also 70% cheaper! At the end of June you can also have your upper wisdom teeth extracted for FREE as part of the oral surgery master's exams. You can find more info on the official zmk website.
