Swiss-European Mobility Programme

Following the Swiss referendum on mass immigration in February 2014, the country’s participation in the Erasmus+ programme has been temporarily suspended. Swiss universities can therefore no longer receive EU-funding, but continue to take part in student and staff exchange within the scope of existing institutional partnerships.

This exchange is in a large part facilitated by the Swiss-European Mobility Programme (SEMP). Students, teachers and staff can thus still apply for mobility contributions for exchange programmes at a university in Switzerland.

A major difference to Erasmus+ grants is that financial contributions will be paid directly by your host university in Switzerland. You can find the current rates on the website mentioned below.
