Inter-University Doctoral Cooperation in Near and Middle Eastern Studies (MUBIT)

The Inter-University Doctoral Cooperation in Near and Middle Eastern Studies (MUBIT) is a doctoral cooperation of the Near and Middle Eastern Studies program at the universities of Basel and Zurich. It is financed by the "Rectors' Conference of the Swiss Universities" (CRUS) for the period 2012-19.

Programmes offered in the framework of the Inter-University Doctoral Cooperation in Near and Middle Eastern Studies are open to all doctoral students of Near and Middle Eastern Studies at Basel or Zurich. Students from Master programs or from other universities can be accepted for individual seminars and workshops on the condition that places will not be filled by MUBIT and G3S doctoral students. 

The Inter-University Doctoral Cooperation in Near and Middle Eastern Studies (MUBIT) strives to find a balance between disciplinary research, thematic interdisciplinarity and openness for transdisciplinary issues. MUBIT is disciplinary as it teaches and organizes workshops for doctoral students in Near and Middle Eastern studies; it is interdisciplinary as it systematically refers to and cooperates with other disciplines relevant for Near and Middle Eastern Studies.

MUBIT is NOT a Doctoral degree, but an Inter-University collaboration that organizes workshops and seminars for doctoral students to support them in different aspects of their research during their studies. Various programmes organised through MUBIT provides training and exchange of knowledge by creating opportunities for its doctoral students to meet experts and other researchers in the field of Near and Middle Eastern Studies.

Doctoral students in the Inter-University Doctoral Cooperation in Near and Middle Eastern Studies (MUBIT) are automatically members of G3S, and therefore they also need to apply for admission with G3S (for details of the admission process please see the central web pages of G3S).

The course program of G3S can be consulted at its central web pages.
