Ideally situated halfway between Geneva and Zürich, in the centre of Europe, the University of Neuchâtel (UniNE) is the perfect place to follow a complete curriculum or undertake high-level research in a splendid location between mountain and lake. UniNE is not an enclosed campus : students and researchers alike live and work in the heart of the city in several different but nearby sites; this helps to establish a unique feeling of solidarity and exchange amongst students, in particular between beginners and more experienced ones.

There are four faculties: The Faculty of Humanities, the Faculty of Science, the Faculty of Law and the Faculty of Economics and Business, all of which offer classes in both French and English.

A human-scaled institution, the University of Neuchatel offers an exceptional ratio of supervision and welcomes more than 4000 students from Switzerland and abroad (25% of the total) each year. UniNE offers Euro-compatible Bachelors and Masters Degrees for each of its educational programmes in innovative fields at the leading edge, in line with society’s current needs.
