You will find information about our institutionstudy programmes, course offerings, as well as ongoing research projects and a variety of academic events, many of which are open to the public.

Prospective students are invited to read our brochure on Studying English at the University of Basel and to consult the information on the studying page.

Current students can find all relevant information on courses, study plans, manuals, exams, etc. on the studying page.

Learning spaces in the library

Room 11 (15 people) and room 12 (the linguistic library; 8 people) have been turned into learning spaces. These spaces will be available from Mon-Fri 9-17h once the pandemic regulations allow.  The university rules concerning masks and cleaning will apply. For tracking reasons, students have to reserve a seat with <alex.van-lierde@unibas.ch>. However, unfortunately, for the moment, the library remains closed  (see book loan/return and book scans until 1 April). Learning spaces are available in the UB.
