Recognised internationally, the University of Neuchatel is a university that aims to offer high standards in education. The modest size of the university provides it the flexibility and dynamism required to accomplish its goal. With around 4380 students from Switzerland and almost 20% of students from overseas, the UniNE offers high quality support and teaching.
The university hires the most educated and experienced teachers with an international reputation in their specific fields. The UniNE provides a comfortable and engaging atmosphere for students, where they are encouraged to actively participate in lessons, seminars and group work. Located halfway between Zürich and Geneva, the UniNE serves as an ideal place for students wishing to undertake high-level research or study in a remarkable environment.
Research in the university is performed by around 800 teachers, scientific staff and researchers, and represents one third of the UniNE’s yearly budget of CHF 128 million. Although research in the university is supported by the European Union, the Swiss National Science Foundation, as well as other funding sources, the UniNE interacts with both private and academic entities.
