Methods of Teaching and Learning

The FHNW operates an integrated learning model, using the strengths of the EBS approach and providing value added learning support through tuition, which is seminar-based and student-led. The FHNW faculty provides active learning sessions through case studies, simulations, group work, presentations, discussions and practical exercises, which all reflect and relate to real-life business experiences. Tuition is offered on the Basel Campus.

Each core course consists of four workshop days, which take place during weekends once a month. Every workshop is held either on a Saturday morning.

Workshop days and times core courses

Saturday session mode: Saturday morning (09.00 –15.00)

Workshop days and times elective courses

Saturday session: Saturday (09.00 –15.00)

In addition to attending the workshops, students are expected to devote 12–14 hours a week to private study. Each course requires an average of 250 study hours.
