In order to become a member, you should:

  1. Read the summary of the admission procedure, types of qualification, and how to obtain your certificate
  2. Know if you are applying for full or associate membership:
    • Full members are enrolled at one of the Universities of Basel, Bern, or Zurich within one of the partner institutions and collect a minimum of 12 credit points (European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System, ECTS) in courses offered by the IGS North-South. Full members receive the IGS North-South Certificate of Specialization in Sustainable Development.
    • Associate members are either not enrolled at one of the partner institutions of the IGS North-South within the three Swiss Universities, or do not want to collect the minimum 12 ECTS needed to receive the IGS North-South Certificate. Associate members only participate in individual courses offered by the IGS North-South and receive certification of every course they successfully complete.
  3. Complete the admission.
  4. Send the admission form or learning agreement to the IGS North-South Management Centre (igs-north-south@cde.unibe.ch). 
  5. Wait for the Directorate to confirm your membership.
