According to the agreement with University of Basel, USI provides from 2017 onwards every year 15 study-places for medical school.

Students can apply for these positions via swissuniversities, according to the official registration process.

The registration process includes the following steps for each applicant:

15.02.19 swissuniversities application deadline for registration to a medical school (the online application for admission to medical school is available from the end of November 2017)
Mar 2019 USI general admission requirements are verified for each applicant
21.05.19 swissuniversities application deadline for the aptitude test - As positions at Swiss medical schools are limited, all applicants applying for a position at USI are required to take an aptitude test.
05.07.19 Aptitude test
Aug 2019 USI will notify candidates on the results of the aptitude test


The 15 students who will be admitted and matriculated at USI will attend their Bachelor in Medicine entirely at UniBas. They will be fully accepted as “host-students” at UniBas and will have equal access, study program, exams, etc. as students matriculated at UniBas. The Bachelor in Medicine at UniBas will be in German language.

By choosing USI from the beginning of the admission process, students have a guaranteed study place at US to continue their Master in Medicine. Hence, it is not possible to claim the continuation of the Master in Medicine at UniBas.
