Since 2005, the Swiss Conservation-Restoration Campus (Swiss CRC) has coordinated the Bachelor of Arts in Conservation. During the first two years, students learn basic conservation techniques. The third year corresponds to a pre-specialisation in one of the areas practiced by the Swiss CRC partner-schools. Haute École Arc de Conservation-Restauration (University of applied sciences) in Neuchâtel offers specialisms in scientific, technical and horological instruments. Holders of a BA in Conservation can work at public, public-private or private institutions (museums, monuments, galleries, foundations). They have acquired specific competencies in preventive conservation and basic skills in conservation-restoration.
