Courses for Master's students (graduate level)
The PSC, in coordination with the University of Zurich, the University of Basel and ETH Zurich, offers a choice of specialized interdisciplinary Master's courses and more than 100 plant science courses at the three partnering universities.
Students can incorporate these courses into their personally-tailored curriculum. They can visit courses at all three partnering universities and receive ECTS accreditation towards degree completion requirements at their home university.
Students may acquire up to 30 ECTS (in accordance with the regulations of their home university Master) through participation in PSC Master's courses outside their home Master. The courses are counted as mandatory elective courses (Wahlpflichtkurse) towards the Master's degree.
Enrolment as an course auditor (Hörer*in) is a prerequisite.
Note: The Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center does not offer a free-standing Master's program. To be eligible to register for the PSC Master's courses, students must first enrol in one of the 6 affiliated Master's programs at their home university (see list further down).
