kiwi hoping to move to basel

Hello everyone,

I am hoping to move to Basel next year to do my Master's in clinical Psychology. I am originally from New Zealand but have been living in Freiburg, Germany for the past two years.

At the moment I am feeling a little overwhelmed thinking about how I can finance my studies and how to get a visa and that sort of thing. I thought this would be a good place to hear about other people's experiences and gain some knowledge.

Re: kiwi hoping to move to basel

Hey, Well you can check with the university, they have lots of information about this, the secretaries rarely reply to emails so i suggest you try calling. I know there are a few scholarships provided by each kanton, but it differs, so you have to check. Its pretty expencive though, if you want to do your masters you most probably will not have enough time to work enough to pay for the rent and everything so i think you should start saving up . good luck

Hi guys,

thanks for the replies

I know it is going to be expensive. I have very little time to save. Looking into student loan options. When you know anything about that let me know. Scholarships for me seem to only be possible after I have completed the first semester.

My flatmate was in Zürich yesterday and said it is a very nice City. I have been to Basel a few times and like it a lot as well.
