Outgoing Mobility

Take advantage of our extensive partner network with international universities and faculties. You will find an overview of the various mobility programs on this page.

General information

Regardless of which mobility program you decide on, you will find useful instructions for the steps to be taken on our website.


Your preference of country or a specific university is decisive in selecting a mobility program or agreement. The Swiss-European Mobility Programme (SEMP) is limited to Europe. Bilateral agreements made by the university, faculty or a department offer the opportunity to apply to partner universities around the world. If there is no agreement with your university of choice, a study abroad stay can also be organized independently.

Swiss-European Mobility Programme SEMP

Universities throughout Europe form a network under this program. More than 150 offerings at various partner universities within Europe are available to students at our Faculty.

Independently organized mobility

If your university of choice is not an exchange partner of UZH or our Faculty, study abroad can also be organized independently. In the first place, this process includes applying to the foreign university as well as clarifying whether credits will be transferred from coursework completed abroad.
