About SFISM

The Swiss Federal Institute of Sport Magglingen SFISM is a leading Swiss sports education and training institution.

The Swiss Federal Institute of Sport Magglingen SFISM is the only Swiss university exclusively dedicated to teaching, research and development in the field of sport. As a Swiss federal institute, it plays a key role in promoting sport and exercise at national level. The SFISM’s close ties to Swiss sports federations and other partners in public and private sport lend its education, research and service activities huge social relevance. They contribute both to improving the quality of life of the Swiss population and to the success of top-flight Swiss sport.

The SFISM is an associated partner of Bern University of Applied Sciences BFH. The renewal of the strategic partnership in 2022 sees the two universities continue their long-standing close cooperation. In addition to joint degree programmes and shared research projects, the partnership involves extensive participation in the partner institution’s boards and administration. In legal terms, BFH and SFISM remain separate institutions. The SFISM is to be independently accredited in 2022.
