Studying abroad - mobility programmes


ERASMUS is a university mobility programme of the EU and part of the ‘ERASMUS+ programme’. The programme promotes mobility of students and teachers, organisation of intensive programmes, and cooperative curriculum development.

Attention! Special case Switzerland!
Switzerland does not officially participate in ERASMUS+ at present. However, you can still apply and be nominated for Switzerland using the Erasmus application  in TISS. Swiss universities pay all nominated incoming students a grant from the SWISS MOBILITY PROGRAMME.
