Joint Visiting Programmes
The University of Basel interacts with academic partners worldwide. Be it at researchers' level, at the level of exchanging teachers or students or by organizing joint programmes.
One programme that addresses not only one specific discipline but doctoral and postdoc students from all fields of research with the aim to share their vision of Higher Education and Research in a globalized world is the Global Perspectives Programme.
Global Perspectives Programme
Learning, Teaching and Doing Research in a Globalized World.
Run in partnership with Virginia Tech, USA, the Global Perspectives Programme (GPP) is aimed at preparing future academic leaders for the challenges of an increasingly diverse and globally focused higher education (HE) sector. Through exchange and first hand experience, GPP offers doctoral and post doctoral students the opportunity for reflective comparison of the two countries' HE sectors and the chance for individuals to develop global competencies and inter-cultural communications skills.
