Why is exchange and mobility important?

Exchange and mobility fulfil important educational policy goals: Young people gain their first intercultural experience and thus strengthen their soft skills and language competences. Educational institutions and training companies improve their quality and their international networking processes through exchange programmes. And Switzerland strengthens national cohesion and the internationalisation of education and the economy.

Who is Movetia?

Movetia is the national agency for the promotion of exchanges and mobility in the education system. Be it within Switzerland, with other European countries or elsewhere in the world, Movetia encourages and supports exchange, mobility and cooperation activities in the different sectors of education, ranging from primary school through adult education to university level, as well as promoting extracurricular activities.
