Study in the beautiful and exciting city of Fribourg. Having official languages of both French and German, this central city offers every comfort one would expect of the Swiss. Like its sister city Bern, Fribourg has preserved its medieval center, and invites students and visitors alike to visit any one of its unique and diverse museums, theaters or its international film festival. Students interested in skiing, ice hockey or basketball will especially be attracted to the sports that the city has to offer.

Fribourg is very strong in law, philosophy, and theology, emphasizing European law, comparative religions, and philosophies. Courses are often highly structured. Also of note are Fribourg’s institutes, which are well known in Switzerland. These include the Institute of Medieval Studies, the interdisciplinary Institute of Eastern and Central Europe, the Federalism Institute, the interdisciplinary Institute of Counseling in Family Matters, the Institute of Ethics and Human Rights, and the Institute of Sports. Fribourg is the only bilingual (French-German) university in Switzerland; classes are taught in French or German. Some courses are taught in English.
