“I received useful suggestions for my master thesis.”


My Story


“I’m studying education in Medellin, Colombia. I was able to come to Berne for a semester thanks to a cooperation project between my home university and Berne University of Teacher Education. In the ‘Mobility and Global Learning’ seminar I presented the subject of my Master’s thesis, and received some useful suggestions.

I really like the cultural diversity in Switzerland. But Berne also reminded me of Medellin a little, because of its mountain backdrop. The International Office of Berne University of Teacher Education took very good care of us. We went on a lot of trips with other foreign students. I like the people here – they are very friendly and helpful.”
