International Office

"Today's engineers work in international, multicultural teams and are globally networked. A stay abroad during a study programme enables them to gain intercultural experience and to establish an international network of contacts."

Dr. Wolfgang Kickmaier, Head of International Relations

Student Exchange Programme

Basic information related to COVID-19  situation and countermeasures at the ZHAW is compiled on our website https://www.zhaw.ch/de/ueber-uns/international. Below you find  specific information important for an exchange semester.

Student exchanges will continue to take place under the condition that all of the regulations issued by our Executive Board and  the Swiss authorities and those in the countries of our partner universities are observed.

The International Relations Office will support incoming and outgoing students as much as possible to ensure that you can successfully complete your exchange semester. Whenever necessary, we work out individual solutions for students.

Remain in contact with the International Relation Office (IRO) exchange.engineering@zhaw.ch before and during your semester abroad. Keep up to date about the situation in your host country. We recommend that you organise your travel or flight plans and accommodation as close to your departure date as possible and that you take out travel cancellation insurance.

If you do the exchange partly or completely online from your home country please contact the IRO and inform us about the plans for your mobility semester. There could be consequences for your grant if you do your mobility semester virtually from your home country or discontinue it part-way through.

The circumstances of the pandemic can change quickly, so the guidelines and requirements from the authorities might be modified at short notice. We therefore ask you to check this website regularly.

Please feel free to contact the International Relations Office School of Engineering exchange.engineering@zhaw.ch or the Head International Relations wolfgang.kickmaier@zhaw.ch.

Globally networked

The ZHAW School of Engineering has supported and promoted national and international student exchanges for many years. With around 60 partner universities worldwide, it commands an extensive international network which it strives to extend. The agreements with our partner universities make it possible for students to benefit from a stay abroad without extending the length of the study programme. Double degree agreements with foreign universities are in place for some degree programmes. At the same time, the ZHAW School of Engineering offers guest students an attractive range of specialist modules taught in English (PDF 653,1 KB).
