The Swiss Programme for Erasmus+ for higher education is called Swiss-European Mobility Programme SEMP. It gives Swiss higher education institutions the possibility to provide funding for students as well as for faculty and administrative staff going on a mobility abroad for studies, traineeship, training or teaching.
HEI usually have an International Relations Office. This is responsible for organising and carrying out student and staff mobility. Students, lecturers and employees who would like to find out about the possibilities of spending a period abroad should contact the International Relations Office of their HEI. There, they can obtain all further information (requirements, application, deadlines, etc.).
SEMP mobility projects are not submitted directly by students or HEI staff but by the Swiss higher education institutions to the National Agency Movetia. This also applies to incoming mobility.
Students and HEI staff coming to Switzerland from abroad are also supported via the SEMP. Traineeships must be organised through a Swiss HEI, usually a partner institution of the home HEI. Students and HEI staff can obtain information from the International Relations Office of their home HEI or a Swiss partner institution.
