Already since 1989, Basel works as a founding member in a network of five of the best universities in Germany, France and Switzerland. In addition to its engagement within these so-called EUCOR universities, the University of Basel collaborates closely with Swiss universities like Geneva, Bern or Zurich, and has established partnerships with universities abroad to provide students with a variety of Joint Master Programmes.
Joint PhD Programmes with higher research institution in Switzerland and other countries are likewise available. Basel students interested in jointly directed PhD programmes can profit from the so-called “Cotutelle Agreement” between the University of Basel and universities in France and Italy, as well as (from fall 2009) in Germany and Austria.
Support instruments for joint activities within Switzerland can be found here.
