Study and career choices

The Basel Student Advice Center provides information and support for your individual study and career choices and/or for topics such as planning your studies, choosing a master’s program, study issues (e.g. studying and work techniques or decision conflicts), starting your career, and continuing education.

Are you grappling with questions such as...

  • Yes, I want to start my studies! But what, where and how?
  • Which course of studies would suit me?
  • What are my skills and interests, and what is important to me?
  • How can I make a decision?
  • Should I take a gap year?
  • What professional prospects does my chosen course of studies give me?
  • Where can I find information?
  • What combination of subjects should I choose?
  • How does “studying” even work?
  • How can I prepare myself for the admission restrictions in medicine?
  • How much math do I need for my studies?
  • What university should I attend?
  • Which master’s program should I choose?
  • I’m pursuing the wrong course of studies – what happens next?
  • Does it make sense to do an internship?
  • What are the career opportunities like?
  • Should I do a doctorate or head straight into the world of work?

.... then make an appointment with us for a one-to-one advice session.

The advice and information encompass degree programs across Switzerland.

This service is intended for students from the high schools of the canton Basel-Stadt and those living in Basel-Stadt. Similarly, we welcome people specifically interested in studying at the University of Basel. The number of sessions, and their duration, will be agreed with you personally.
