Recognition of degrees from foreign higher education institutions for admission

Applicants with degrees from a foreign higher education institution can be admitted to specific bachelor’s degree programs independent of proof of a secondary school leaving certificate. The degree must be on the level of a bachelor’s/master’s degree or equivalent. The degree must have been conferred by a higher education institution recognized by the University of Basel and be deemed by the University of Basel to be equivalent to a corresponding degree from a Swiss higher education institution. This does not inlcude continuing-education qualifications.Study programs with admissions restrictions remain subject to special requirements.
