A variety of exchange options are available at the ZHAW School of Life Sciences and Facility Management that can be programme-supported - such as the Swiss-European Mobility Programme SEMP - or outside the scope of an organised mobility programme. Choose the one that best suits your ideas and options
ZHAW employees are in regular contact with international partners. Internationally mobile employees drive the internationalisation of universities. The mutual exchange of ideas is not only a central element for high quality teaching and research, but also a key element in the promotion of student mobility and the internationalisation of curricula.
The International Relations Office (IRO) team is happy to provide advice on student and employee mobility. The IRO coordinates and administers all exchanges in cooperation with the mobility officers in the institutes, who provide course-specific advice, help plan studies and deal with recognition of academic achievements.
