Since 2014, Switzerland is no longer part of the Erasmus Programme. However, our partnerships in Switzerland remain active, with funding for students being paid by the Swiss Government under the Swiss European Mobility Programme (SEMP).
Who would this option suit?
- SEMP is possible as an undergraduate student at Level 2 and Level 3. Please note that some subjects do not permit Level 3 exchange, or will only allow students to study abroad for a single semester. Check with the Go Abroad Tutor for your subject/s for restrictions.
- SEMP is NOT suitable for Masters and PhD students - please look at our other options to find a more suitable opportunity.
In order to apply, students should:
- have an overall C average, and be on track to achieve
- 120 Credit points at the end of 1st year AND/OR
- 240 Credit points at the end of 2nd year
- have the support of your Go Abroad Tutor/s (you don't need to request this in advance - they will be contacted as part of the application process)
Applications to SEMP should be eligible for funding.
Important points to note
- SEMP applications should be made via the Erasmus online application, with a single deadline (1 February), regardless of whether you plan to study abroad in September or January.
How to search
All our Swiss agreements are open to students from all subject disciplines (with the exception of Medicine and Dentistry) provided that you can find suitable courses taught in English that meet the requirements of your degree programme.
Where these are restricted to one or two subjects, or we know these destinations to be unsuitable for certain degree programmes, we have noted this, though this list is not exhaustive.
