About

The International Health programme at the University of Basel focuses on strategies of modern International / Global Health approaches which take into account conditions of countries with resources constraints.

Overview

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. 

Programme Structure

Additional 20 ECTS will be given for the research project or thesis with which participants prove that they have acquired both knowledge and skills. All participants have to take courses in at least 2 institutions belonging to the tropEd network, a legal association of some 30 European and overseas institutions of higher education. Since 2005, the MIH is part of the Swiss School of Public Health+ (SSPH+).
