The 4th semester is reserved for the master's thesis. You can find more information in the following link.

Most of our students study full-time and work at the same time. We support them and organize mandatory courses on three days of the week only.

Students who work may officially request to extend their studies to six semesters.

Interested in finding a job in the industry? Then the University of Bern is the place to be! There are around 280 medical technology manufacturers and suppliers in the canton of Bern and the sector is constantly growing, with the number of jobs in medical technology rising.

Our 12 different research groups at the ARTORG Center offer part-time jobs to excellent students. If you are interested please contact us after you have been accepted into our master's program.

 

 

Do you want to brush up on your maths before the start of the program?

The preparation week provides an opportunity for high-achieving and ambitious students to work on their skills and be prepared for the master's program Artificial Intelligence in Medicine at the University of Bern.

By combining theoretical lectures on linear algebra, optimization and probability with a rich array of practical exercises in Python, MSc AIM's fall session will successfully prepare you for the new and exciting challenges!
