Bern University of Applied Sciences BFH - Bern University of the Arts HKB

The Bern University of the Arts brings together a wide range of artistic disciplines under one roof. The range of courses on offer includes Bachelor's and Master's degrees as well as continuing education courses in the fields of design, art, conservation and restoration. The main areas of study are listed below: Painting and sculpture, architectural surfaces and interior design, graphics, writing and photography, textile restoration and modern materials and media.

Swiss Conservation-Restoration Campus (Swiss CRC)
Swiss university education in the field of conservation and restoration has pooled its expertise in the Swiss CRC. In addition to the BUA, three other locations offer specialisation opportunities (Major Programmes).
The basic studies (first 2 years) are completed with an intermediate examination (assessment) and qualify students to choose a specialisation at the Swiss CRC, i.e. a transfer to another location within the campus is possible.
From the specialisation programmes (major and minor), students in the third year of training can select and combine the necessary areas of knowledge, skills and abilities in the form of block courses. The central theme is always the students' own practical project work in the specialized conservation and restoration studios.
Programme structure Bachelor of Arts in Conservation

The Bachelor of Arts in Conservation is structured as a two-year generalist foundation course and a one-year specialisation course. The aim is to provide an introduction to practice-oriented conservation science and then to enter a major program with a technical specialization.
Four Major Programs are currently offered in Bern:
  • Architecture and Equipment
  • Painting and sculpture
  • Graphics, written material and photography
  • Modern materials and media

The special character of the department requires pluri- and interdisciplinary teamwork during the course of studies - both within the BUA and with the partner universities in the Swiss CRC.
Master of Arts in Conservation-Restoration
The Master builds on the Bachelor in Conservation and ideally on the specialisation prepared there. Therefore, a Bachelor's or other basic academic training in conservation with a high practical component is an indispensable prerequisite. The study programme is based on the competence requirements of the European Confederation of Conservator-Restorers' Organisations (E.C.C.O.) of 2011 for the entry into the conservation-restauration profession.
The course is structured in such a way that it can be completed full-time or part-time. It consists of longer practical phases in the studios and the thematically focused weekly block modules of the Majors and Minors. The course concludes with a Master's thesis as an independent work with a distinctly innovative character.
