Language competency fide

The registration for the Proof of language competency fide is final. The fee must be paid before the exam.
For a cancellation up to two weeks prior to the date of the Proof of language competency fide we charge CHF 75.– cancellation fee. Thereafter without exception the entire fee is due.
Examination fees will not be refunded if you do not attend or do not pass the examination.

The K5 Basler Kurszentrum carries out the language competency fide. The correction and evaluation is carried out by the fide office, which is independent of the K5 Basler Kurszentrum.
By registering, the candidate agrees that the K5 Basler Kurszentrum may view the examination documents and the results (after correction and evaluation by the fide office) for quality assurance purposes.


The possibility of a childcare fee reduction will be reviewed at the time of registration. A fee reduction is based on a family’s income, which must be shown in writing when registering for a course. Residents of Basel-Stadt must provide verification that they receive a health insurance premium fee reduction; residents of Baselland must provide a salary statement.

The fees can be paid in instalments and must be paid in full by the end of the day care period booked.

Childcare registration may be cancelled at no cost up until two weeks before the course begins. As of the third course week, the full course fees will be billed.
