Swiss-European Mobility Programme (SEMP)
Partner universities at departmental level in Switzerland are also included in the above-mentioned Erasmus+/SEMP place list. SEMP is the Swiss-European Mobility Programme – the Swiss alternative to the Erasmus+ programme. Within this programme, the Swiss universities support their incoming and outgoing mobility (students/staff) themselves. The decision on funding via SEMP is made by the Swiss universities – based on their budgets. Therefore, please contact the Swiss partner university for information on possible funding. Mobility is organised by the national agency Movetia
