Additional requirements for the admission with a degree from a university of applied sciences or a university of teacher education recognised by the University of Basel

In addition to the requirements of the student regulations dated 28 September 2011 of the University of Basel and the guidelines of admission to the University of Basel, the following requirements have to be fulfilled in case of an application with a degree from a university of applied sciences or a degree from a university of teacher education recognized by the University of Basel:

  1. Degree with a grade average of lower than 5 (not rounded)
    The grade average has to be at least 5 (not rounded) according to the Swiss grading system (grades: 1 to 6, 6 = max. / 4 = pass) in order to allow access to master’s studies. An admission to the bachelor’s studies is possible as long as there are no special admission requirements. Course achievements can be recognized by the University of Basel, after a formal request has been submitted and only in the form of a waiver. A bachelor’s degree awarded by the University of Basel requires that at least 75 credit points have been earned at the University of Basel.
  2. Admission in the case of an exclusion
    In the case of a final exclusion from a degree program or subject at a Swiss or foreign higher education institution or after the successful completion of the degree program or subject, the admission to a comparable degree program or subject will be denied (Section 13, Para. 2 of the student regulations). Deviations from this principle can be allowed in the case of an exclusion from a bachelor’s degree program and the subsequent awarding of a degree by a university of applied sciences or a university of teacher education recognized by the University of Basel with a grade average of 5 (not rounded) according to the Swiss grading system if this degree allows for access to the master’s degree course at the University of Basel. The admission to a comparable bachelor’s degree course is not permitted in any case.
