The search for new impressions does not require hours of flying. Our neighbouring countries have much to discover, too, along with the unforgettable experiences and meetings that await you.
Every year, the FSU sends around 300 students abroad. Between the end of their initial year of study and up to a doctorate, students can be supported for a period of study ranging from three to twelve months at a host university abroad.
The partnerships of the ERASMUS+ programme refer to the individual departments and/or courses. The coordination with partner institutes with regard to relevant departments enables a high quality exchange with course options representing a reasonable enhancement to your studies at the FSU.
Caution: As of the academic year 2014/15, Switzerland no longer participates in the ERASMUS programme. Studying in Switzerland is, however, still possible. As the Swiss government subsidizes exchange activities, you can receive a partial grant for the stay at one of our Swiss partner universities. For more information, please contact your host university in Switzerland.
According to the Erasmus Impact Study, young people who complete part of the their studies or education abroad not only acquire new specialist knowledge but also key interdisciplinary competenceshighly valued by employers.
A new study about the effects of Erasmus, the EU-exchange programme for students, shows, that graduates with international experience are better in asserting oneselves on the job market. The likelihood to be unemployed for a longer period of time is just half the probability then for those not having been abroad for study or educational reasons. Five years after getting the degree, the unemployment rate is 23% lower.
The study has been created by independent experts and is the most extensive of its kind; it is based on 80 000 responses from both students and companies. For more information about the study please read the official press release.
