Eligibility to attend individual courses
Students who are enrolled at another Swiss university (cantonal universities or Swiss Federal Institutes of Technology) and pay all of their tuition fees at that institution are admitted to the University of Basel without matriculation. They are allowed to attend individual courses and can earn credit points (courses up to a total of 20 credit points per semester). They do not pay any tuition or auditing fees to the University of Basel. However, they are not entitled to earn academic degrees at the University of Basel (student regulations, §30).
Submitting registration sheet / deadlines
The completed and signed registration sheet must be submitted, along with a scan of a student ID or a confirmation of matriculation from the home university valid for the corresponding semester, by e-mail via www.unibas.ch/studseksupportEN in due time. Please send the documents as soon as possible in order to get access to the Online Services by the beginning of the lecture period. The deadline for submission is the first day of the lecture period each semester.
- Acknowledgement of Submission
After registration you will be sent an acknowledgement of submission including further information via e-mail.
- University email Account
After registration, a letter from IT Services with details of your university email account will be sent to you in the following few days via regular post. In accordance with our student regulations, you must activate this email account and read incoming messages every week. If you already have a UNIBAS email account (@stud.unibas.ch or @unibas.ch), this step is not necessary.
- Online Services
The Online Services are available at services.unibas.ch. To log in, please use your unibas email account and enter the corresponding password (not accessible until 24 hours after you activate your email account, however; in the fall semester 2023 from 1 August and not earlier). The Online Services are used for course registrations and address changes. There you can also see your academic performance at the University of Basel and you can download transcripts of records
- Course Registration
Please use the Online Services (services.unibas.ch) for all course registrations. You must register for all courses you wish to attend in due time. Course registration is a prerequisite for sitting examinations and thus for obtaining credit points. In the fall semester 2023, students must register for courses between 1 August and 16 October 2023 at the latest. Further information on course registration can be found at: unibas.ch/en/Studies/My-Studies/Course-Registration.html
Transcripts of records
Transcripts of records are issued at the end of February and at the end of August. Transcripts confirm the number of obtained course credits and credit points. These are then available to you in the online services.
