Admission to the Doctoral Degree Program

Admission into the doctoral degree programm occurs mainly through the individual research groups and their principal investigators, to whom applications should be directed, see the research pages of the groups for availability of positions.

As a condition for admission into the Physics doctoral degree program, the University of Basel requires a Masters degree (usually, but not neccessarily, in Physics) or a degree considered equivalent to a masters degree, click here for details. Applicants holding a Masters degree from numerous Universities as well as students with a Diploma from Swiss, German or Austrian Universities should have no problem being admitted. Please feel free to contact the admissions office for specific information. For applicants holding other degrees that might be considered equivalent to a Masters degree, the admissions committe of the Faculty of Science will make a decision on a case by case basis. A Bachelors degree will generally not be considered sufficient for admission into the doctoral degree program.

To obtain a Ph. D. in Basel, there are no course requirements. However, doctoral students are encouraged to follow advanced courses (offered for the Masters degree program) to extend or deepen their knowledge. Also, once applicants have found a Ph. D. advisor and once applicants have met the admission criteria as described in the above paragraph, no further examinations are usually required for admission into the Ph. D. program.

International Students

The scientific language used at our department is generally english. While knowledge of german language might be helpful in everyday situations, participation in research projects will not require german language and numerous PhD's have been awarded to students who do not speak german. Our Institute hosts a diverse community of scientific personnel originating from a large number of countries. Basel, located where Germany, France and Switzerland merge, is and has long been a multi-cultural city. Today, Basel is also one of the major centers worldwide in Life Science and Bio Technology due to the thriving activities of the numerous Pharma, Medical and Chemical companies located here. More information for international students is available here.

Foreign Doctoral students from countries other then the EU usually need a (student) VISA to be allowed to study in Switzerland. With an appropriate letter from our Department / the corresponding research advisor, this VISA is usually obtained within a few days from the corresponding Swiss embassy abroad.

Chinese third graders fall behind:

by Im_yourHuckleberry

CHESTNUT HILL, MA—According to an alarming new report published Wednesday by the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement, third-graders in China are beginning to lag behind U.S. high school students in math and science.
The study, based on exam scores from thousands of students in 63 participating countries, confirmed that in mathematical and scientific literacy, American students from the ages of 14 to 18 have now actually pulled slightly ahead of their 8-year-old Chinese counterparts.“This is certainly a wake-up call for China,” said Dr. Michael Fornasier, an IEA senior fellow and coauthor of the report

Example. how DUMB people are here

Mainly not here but out in new age medical land.
This fascinating research comes out, that physicists have been working on for years about nerve impulses rooted in sound, and not electricity..then BOOM!!!! All these wackos about "sound therapy etc" claim victory!!!!! Like they somehow know what the fuck they are doing...all based on a simple news release like this.
Does anyone think anymore???? Most people who read this don't even know what these scientists are talking about.

Where to study economics in Germany?

Can you please list me a couple of Germany universities that are good in teaching economics, business management, marketing etc.

First off, are you able to speak German fluently? If so, that's a great advantage! I studied at Justus-Liebig Universität in Gießen, Hessen, Germany (About 40 min train ride north of Frankfurt a.M.). My mentor studied business economics there. It's a nice medium-sized city, in case you're intimidated by big city living (like I am!). Look into that perhaps? There's also the option of studying at a Fochhochschule, which specializes in applied sciences. I can't speak for any other uni in Germany, but perhaps look into this one.
