Student’s ToDo list for every semester

JMCS students

JMCS students are students who are matriculated in the Joint Master program in Computer Science of the universities of Bern, Neuchâtel and Fribourg.

Every semester, they have to do the following three tasks:

1. Each student must register for the teaching units that they want to take during that semester until the registration deadline (see below) in Academia.


2. Each student must register for the exams before the registration deadline (see below) in Academia.


3. Each student must register for the BeNeFri network if he/she follows a teaching unit at a partner university, before the following dates

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

The procedure is dependent on the student’s situation

Travel expenses are reimbursed by the student’s home university and must be claimed until

  • Autumn semester: January 31st
  • Spring semester: June 30th

For this purpose, use the travel regulation (BeNeFri forms).

Hosted JMCS students

Hosted JMCS students are all students other than JMCS students who follow a teaching unit of the Joint Master in Computer Science, e.g.:

  • bachelor students in Computer Science (major, minor, optional studies)
  • master students in Mathematics or Information Management

They have to do the exactly same three tasks as mentioned above for JMCS students, and they must additionally do every semester the following task:

4. Each student must complete a Request for Academia Access form at the beginning of every semester before the following dates

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

The student will be informed when he/she is able to login into Academia.
