Family orientation

The University of Basel considers a lived and cultivated diversity to be a prerequisite for excellence in all its fields of activity. In this context, family-friendliness is a central concern for it, and this is emphasised in studies, teaching, research and administration. 

  • Since September 2021, the University of Basel has been the first Swiss organisation to be awarded the family-friendly university certificate. 
  • Furthermore, the University is a member of the "Family in Higher Education" network and signed the associated charter in June 2021.
