Swiss-European Mobility Programme


The SEMP (Swiss-European Mobility Programme) internship programme has replaced the Erasmus internship programme. This gives you the opportunity to complete an internship in a business, hospital, laboratory, school, etc. in Europe and, as soon as the academic year 2021-2022, anywhere in the world and receive a grant for it.

  • Any public or private-sector organisation can host an intern, except for the European institutions, EU bodies or organisations that manage EU programmes, and the diplomatic institutions of the student’s country of origin (embassy, etc.)
  • The internship must last between two and 12 months
  • The grant is CHF 440 per month for a traineeship in Europe and CHF 500 per month outside Europe
  • The internship is recorded in the student’s diploma supplement
  • Students must be selected, at the latest, during their final year of study and before their final projects or examinations (without exception!) and must complete their internship abroad within a year of gaining their qualification at the latest. In this case, the internship is not recorded in the diploma supplement and a certificate of employment must be provided by the employer.
