The aim of the advice service is to work with students to come up with individual solutions in order to plan and arrange their studies as effectively as possible. Advice is given in groups (tutorial for students in their first semesters, licentiate work groups) and on an individual basis.
In terms of bachelor's degree programs, the focus is on planning studies, providing guidance and questions about how to organize work. In terms of master's degree programs, the advice is really about ascertaining where people are.
The person entrusted with providing academic student advice is also a point of contact for other matters (advice relating to studies, breaks from studies, information on grants, feedback in relation to studies, etc.).
They can also provide informational material relating to studies: plans of studies, information leaflet on drafting (pro-)seminar work and master theses, general guidance and other informational material about studies in Bern.
The Erasmus representative coordinates Erasmus activities for the Faculty of Theology. They provide information regarding exchange programs involving the faculty and look after foreign Erasmus students.
Bern students interested in an Erasmus semester abroad should contact the Erasmus coordinator before doing anything else. They can provide informational material relating to studies both at home and abroad.
