University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland FHNW

The University of Applied Sciences and Arts Northwestern Switzerland FHNW is a state-accredited university of applied sciences: this unique concept in Swiss tertiary education is designed to meet professional needs in education, research and consulting.

The FHNW was formed from a merger in 2006 of diverse tertiary institutions long established throughout the northwestern region of Switzerland: three Universities of Applied Sciences (Aargau, Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft, and Solothurn), the School of Education of Solothurn and the School of Education and Social Sciences of Basel-Stadt and Basel-Landschaft and the Academy of Music Basel. Switzerland’s Federal Council authorized the establishment of the FHNW in 2003 and approved all of its existing programs of study.
