International studies

Spending a semester or a clinical placement abroad is a valuable experience for any student and offers the opportunity to learn how health professions are taught and practised in other countries.

The School of Health Sciences promotes student mobility both for incoming students from other universities and for outgoing students from ZHAW who want to spend one or more semesters at a foreign university of applied sciences. Students in the various degree programmes are regularly informed about available opportunities. Please note that you must meet any requirements specified in the individual degree programmes to be able to do a semester or a clinical placement abroad.
