The type of partnership varies with respect to the content and administrative aspects, which range from opening individual classes to students from other institutions all the way to joint degree programs.

Free Mobility

Free mobility for students on their own initiative: students are described as out-going students by their home institutions and as in-coming students by the partner higher education institutions.

Mobility recommendation

Mobility recommendation of modules and classes offered by partner universities that are particularly well-suited for visiting students. The recognition of coursework and the corresponding credit points awarded at the home institution are already determined.

Out-Going In-Coming
Certain classes at partner higher education institutions are recommended to students from the University of Basel. Lecturers open their classes explicitly to students from other higher education institutions.

Mandatory mobility

Students are required to earn credit points at other universities/higher education institutions.

Teaching import or shared offerings

Exchange window
