Eligibility to attend individual courses
Based on an agreement between the University of Basel and the University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland (FHNW), students who are enrolled at FHNW and pay full tuition fees are admitted to the University of Basel without matriculation 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 auditor fees to the University of Basel. However, they are not entitled to earn academic degrees (student regulations, § 29).
A special agreement exists for the Joint Degree Master program Subject-specific Teaching and Learning as well as for Biomedical Engineering. These students are already matriculated at the University of Basel and do need to register again. For secondary level I degree programs, all course registrations are handled by PH-FHNW.
Students in secondary level II degree programs and who have remaining requirements to fulfill to earn their subject-scientific qualifications can earn the necessary credit points without proper enrollment at the University of Basel only if the number of credit points does not exceed a total of 20.
