Student counselling services

A familial atmosphere and direct contact between students and lecturers provide optimum learning and teaching conditions. Students are supported in a manner that takes consideration of their individual needs and fosters autonomous thought and action.

Students have regular access to teaching staff who offer a range of support services concerning all aspects of the degree programmes. In addition, both HAFL and the Bern University of Applied Sciences (BFH) offer various counselling services which include information about and support with:

  • Designing study programmes
  • Student finance
  • Personal difficulties, crises or conflicts
  • Finding the correct contact person/institution

Counselling sessions are confidential and free of charge.
