Funding external courses

Funding for External Courses

PPHS students can apply for funding of external courses that are essential for their studies but that are not offered by the University of Basel.

The courses need to be linked to the student portfolio, award ECTS, and cover essential competencies of the PhD studies. The funding covers all or part of the course fee. It does not cover travel costs, accommodation or conference fees.

The financial support depends on the funds available and the number of courses funded previously. Students may apply for up to CHF 1000 of funding during their PhD, i.e. between admission and defense.

How to apply?

Please send the signed application form together with a course description and a statement of the supervisor to the Coordination Office prior to registering for a course. The coordination office will generally inform you about the decision within 2-3 weeks.

Within 2 weeks of completing the course, please send the reimbursement form (which you will receive after approval of the funding), a copy of the course certificate, and proof of payment to the Coordination Office. Reimbursement can only be processed with all relevant documents.
