Thinking about moving to Basel

Hello all, new to this forum.

My mother is from Basel. I came very close to growing up there, and spent a lot of time there as a kid, but ended up growing up in New York City. I hold both an American and Swiss passport.

I was quite fluent in Swiss-german as a child, but haven't had any practice in many years. I understand a bit of Swiss, but it's mostly lost. I'm now 34. I'm also recently married.

I've been living in India for the past 4 years, doing a lot of volunteer work for a non profit.

I'm thinking of re-starting in Basel. Starting a new career and new life there, possibly going to school at a Swiss university. I'm nervous because I'm so out of practice speaking German or Swiss-German. Does anyone have any thoughts or advice for me on how best to get started?

I'd be interested in pursuing either a career in health care (nursing, medical assistant, physical therapist, something like that) or possibly even finance. I think what would be key would be finding a degree program in English in one of these field in Switzerland. Is that even possible?

Any thoughts or advice would really help!
