SEMP programme


Following the suspension of negotiations on Switzerland's association to Erasmus+, to continue to allow European mobility, the Federal Council has drawn up a temporary solution by providing funds to finance both incoming and outgoing exchanges. Exchange grants for a period of study in one of the European partner universities will be assured.

SEMP Studies Scholarship
The Erasmus programme entitles you to receive a bursary if the following conditions are met:

  • You are enrolled at USI
  • You are not holding another bursary of the European Union for an international student exchange programme

Scholarships are not expected to cover the entire costs incurred during the stay abroad period, but they may contribute toward travel expenses and some of the living costs.


Payment of the SEMP scholarship

The scholarship will be paid by the International Relations Office in July (for Autumn Terms) and in January (for Spring Terms). The bursary will be credited directly to the student's bank or postal account: two-thirds payable at the time of departure, while the remaining third is payable on receipt of the signed Certificate of Attendance, the signed Learning Agreement, the End of studies report form and the Exchange Report (see here).
