Psychological counseling

The Basel Student Advice Center is an independent port of call for students/doctoral students at the University of Basel who are experiencing personal or psychological issues.

We offer psychological counseling on topics such as:

  • Guidance
  • Decision conflicts
  • Test-related stress
  • Organizing your work and time management
  • Personal and psychological issues during your studies

If necessary, we can assist you with finding a specialist psychotherapist.

If you have a disability, chronic illness or mental illness, you can also access the service point of Students Without Barriers (StoB) at the University of Basel to obtain advice and information about compensating for disadvantages/examination adjustments. The advice is free and confidential.

This service is intended for students and doctoral students at the University of Basel. The number of sessions, and their duration, will be agreed with you personally. The advice is free and confidential.
