The ZHAW School of Management and Law offers several opportunities for study abroad.
Exchanges in Europe (SEMP)
In 2014, Switzerland launched its own mobility program, (the Swiss European Mobility Programme SEMP), for mobility to continue between universities in Switzerland and partner universities from the countries of the Erasmus+ program.
As a member of SEMP, the ZHAW School of Management and Law therefore continues to honor agreements established under Erasmus+ with over 90 universities in Europe – from Sweden to Turkey and from Portugal to Estonia. SEMP exchange students remain enrolled at the ZHAW School of Management and Law and pay the standard ZHAW tuition fees. Consequently, they pay no tuition fees at their host universities and may be entitled to apply for a SEMP mobility grant, funded by the Swiss government, during their stay abroad.
Exchanges outside Europe (Bilateral)
The ZHAW School of Management and Law continues to expand the opportunities for students to study at universities outside Europe and has agreements with more than 90 partner institutions in North America, Latin America, the Asia-Pacific region, the Near East, and Africa. The terms of study abroad are the same as those of the SEMP program. It is possible to apply for an SML mobility scholarship.
Study abroad agreements with tuition fees (fee-paying)
In addition to these bilateral exchange programs, the ZHAW School of Management and Law has agreements with selected universities on a fee-paying basis. These universities are located inside and outside Europe and they have been included in the program because of the quality of the school, the language of instruction, and/or specific courses that match those of the ZHAW School of Management and Law. ZHAW School of Management and Law students are required to pay semester tuition fees (Studiengebühren) at these host institutes. Students can also apply for the ZHAW School of Management and Law mobility grant.
