PhD work at Bern University of Applied Sciences

The Bern University of the Arts in cooperation with the University of Bern offer the doctoral programme «Graduate School of the Arts».

This interdisciplinary programme is intended for both artists engaged in research and scholars with an interest in artistic praxis.

In other disciplines, through co-operation with partner universities abroad there are additional individual opportunities for you as a doctoral student to be placed within one of our research departments to do the practical ground work for your thesis.

Decisions on the placement of doctoral students are taken by the research directors of each BFH department. The International Relations Office will be glad to help you with the corresponding assessments.
