All students matriculated at the University of Basel must register for all courses and lectures they wish to attend. This regulation also applies to all doctoral students attending courses and lectures. Prior to any new semester, all matriculated students and doctoral students will be sent their student ID and an information sheet providing details on course registration. Students are advised that course registration is subject to strict deadlines.
Obtaining credit points
Course registration is a prerequisite for sitting examinations and thus for obtaining credit points.
The specific conditions for obtaining credit points as well as the regulations for registering and cancelling registrations for examinations are specified in the respective degree course regulations.
Please note that credit points are awarded only once for the same or similar courses. Identical or similar courses bear an identical course number (first five digits). If, for example, you have successfully completed and therefore received credit points for course no. 12345-01, you may once more register for course no. 12345-01 in a future semester, but you will not be awarded credit points for it again.
Course registration deadline
Students must register for courses between 1 August and 16 October 2017 at the latest. Please use the university’s official web application MOnA for all course registrations. No course registrations or cancelation will be accepted in MOnA after the closing date for course registration.
