Access HGK

"Access HGK" is a student-initiated association which promotes equal opportunities in access to higher education. The purpose of the association is to make it easier for prospective students with refugee experience to provide access to the Basel Academy of Art and Design (HGK Basel) by means of a bridge offer.

"Access HGK" will start in the autumn semester of 2023/24 in a three-year pilot phase. With the bridge offer, the Access HGK association offers on the one hand the possibility of a trial semester, and on the other hand it provides support for the admission procedure of regular study programmes. The association offers supplementary counselling services for people with refugee experience who are interested in studying at the HGK Basel.
