Incomings from our European Partner Universities (SEMP)

Who can study at IPZ?

If you are currently enrolled at one of our European Partner Universities you have the possibility to come and study at the Institute of Political Science for one or two semesters.

After the referendum on "mass immigration"

Following the Swiss referendum „on mass immigration“ in February 2014, the European Union suspended negotiations on Switzerland’s full participation in the EU education program Erasmus+, and declared Switzerland a third party country. The student exchange with our partner universities will be continued in the framework of the new "Swiss-European Mobility Programme" (SEMP) with bilateral exchange agreements.

The modalities of SEMP are similar to the ones under Erasmus, Scholarships for incoming students will be covered by the Swiss Government.
