It is possible to go abroad in this program. We are currently working on setting up contracts with partner universities. For the time being, our students are welcome to go abroad via the involved departments.
There is a possibility to go abroad for a traineeship instead of a regular semester of studies. The advantage is that you are not bound to the semester dates and the traineeship can range between 2-12 months and, in case you have not finished your studies yet, be counted towards your degree. Please find more information here.
Of course, you can always self-organize your stay abroad if your preferred university is not listed as one of UZH's partner universities. You can find more information and semester fee refund options here.
We usually recommend the third semester for this, but you are free to choose which semester suits you best. Keep in mind that the compulsory methodological modules are only offered every fall semester.
For more information on how to proceed, visit the website of the Global Student Experience.
Important: Before you depart, it is therefore essential that you clarify with your assigned contact person or examination delegate which credits will be counted towards your degree in Zurich and draw up a corresponding Learning Agreement. For all SEMP-exchanges, you will be able to fill out a form directly in the MobOn tool. However, for every planned exchange, please contact us so we can fill out an official Learning Agreement together to make sure the courses taken at the guest university will be credited to your degree.
