Information on the studies
The University of Applied Sciences Northwestern Switzerland FHNW with its approx. 9500 students offers highly individualised study programmes, allowing students to put together their own curriculum by choosing mixed classes.
The graduates from our institution are among the most highly sought-after professionals in their fields both nationally and internationally.
The University is located in one of the most highly industrialised and developed areas of the country.
It is thanks to this that the links between research and practice through rapid technology and knowledge transfer play a dominant role in our education and are mirrored in all our courses.
Interdisciplinarity is considered of major importance in our teaching. During the past few years, project and process based learning has replaced traditional lectures to a considerable extent.
