The Master of Advanced Studies in International Health at the University of Basel was established by the Swiss Tropical Institute in 1998 and was accredited by the University of Basel in 2001. In October 2007, this program was also accredited by the «Schweizerische Universitätskonferenz» for the period of seven years without conditions imposed.
The programme is equivalent to a one-year full-time Master with 60 ECTS. The students enrol at the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute for the core course «Health Care and Management in Tropical Countries». After successfully completing the core course, students enrol for optional modules (1 to 5 weeks each) at one of the tropEd partner institutions. There they study supervised by an individual tutor. Credit Points have to sum up to a total of 20 for these optional modules.
