Students from all departments of the BFH can participate in the activities and project work - from the AHB to SoZialen Arbeit. In a project work you can join an existing project, apply for an advertised project or set up your own together with fellow students.
We offer you networking events to network with like-minded fellow students, put your ideas into practice - or jump on top of other people's projects. On this page you will also find information about workshops, exciting events and support offers.
