The BeNeFri network, as the result of the collaboration between the Universities of Bern, Neuchâtel and Fribourg, allows you to attend courses at both partner universities. This way, you have the opportunity to follow a wide-range of courses and to discover student life at another university.


Registration to the BeNeFri network is possible for study fields mentioned in the annex to the framework convention.

For further information (study fields, courses, recognitions, etc.), please contact the faculty involved.

Registration requests to BeNeFri courses must be submitted on the MyUnifr portal within the following deadlines:

  • Autumn semester: 30 September
  • Spring semester: 28 February

 Registrations are valid for one semester only. You will therefore have to reregister for each semester if you wish to remain registered with the BeNeFri network.


Students coming to Unifr:

  • If you are registering for the first time at the University of Fribourg in the BeNeFri network (including re-registration after an interruption of a few semesters): you will receive an e-mail ( / from the IT Services concerning the activation of your account.

For any enquiries or requests relating to your e-account or its reactivation, please contact the student support Micromus.
