Counselling Centre Universities of Bern

Counselling services

Depending on a student's individual, social and institutional background, studying at university can be experienced as a harmonious and enriching stage of personal development or – at least in parts – as a stressful and difficult phase of life.

What all students have in common, regardless of their field of study, age, employment and other differentiation criteria, is that they are confronted with a range of challenges and expectations during their time spent studying. However, as the counselling provided to students repeatedly shows, these are perceived and mastered in very many different ways: Requirements can be viewed as challenging or overtaxing, encouraging or discouraging.

The following counselling services offer you support and information:
