Why study at the UFL

One of the things that attracted me to the Private University in the Principality of Liechtenstein (UFL) was the option of studying while working. This model was ideal for me due to the option of being able to work completely independently apart from the lectures, in addition to my professional and political commitments. Due to the international diversity of the students and the associated selection of lecture topics by UFL, my legal knowledge also expanded beyond national borders. This promotes networked thinking, which is particularly valuable in everyday professional life.

Désirée Guntli
Graduate «Dr. iur.»

For a long time, I was looking for a way to combine working hours as a lawyer with the time commitment of a doctoral programme. By chance, I came across the UFL in Liechtenstein and found not only a committed and motivating faculty, but also a curriculum that takes sufficient account of the needs of working students.

The encounters with the lecturers were always respectful and at eye level. At the end of this journey, you have a great network and a doctorate that nobody can take away from you.
