The Swiss Programme for Erasmus+ for higher education is called Swiss-European Mobility Programme SEMP. SEMP gives Swiss higher education institutions the possibility to support students as well as teaching and administrative staff doing a study-, training- or teaching-mobility in Europe with funding.
In order to ensure reciprocity, student and staff mobility from Erasmus+ programme countries to Switzerland is also supported by SEMP. Traineeships must be organised through a Swiss HEI, usually a partner institution of the student’s home HEI. Students and HEI staff can obtain information from the International Relations Office of their home HEI.
Setting up and implementing joint cooperation partnerships is an additional component in the internationalisation of HEIs. For this, Erasmus+ offers various funding instruments, which support inter-institutional collaboration. This overview summarises everything Erasmus+ offers for higher education and provides information on participation options (despite partner country status) for Swiss HEIs.
For mobility and cooperation with institutions outside Europe, Movetia offers further funding instruments within the “International Programme”.
