Instructions on applying for a departmental programme

  1. Read the specific information regarding your chosen programme through carefully.
    Because the structure of departmental programmes varies, note the specific registration deadlines and list of required application documents for your programme, found on the respective information pages>>, and follow the instructions precisely.
  2. At an early stage, ask your mobility advisor about the selection procedure and registration.
    The mobility advisor will select suitable students for the places available at the partner university.
  3. The application for your desired programme must reach the Student Exchange Office by 10 January, 24:00, unless the programme’s information page>> specifies otherwise.


ETH students who want to apply for an exchange will find the guidelines to the application process here>> (PDF currently only available in German, English version soon to follow).

Procedure after submitting your application to the Student Exchange Office

After submitting your application to the ETH Zurich Student Exchange Office you will need to gather further application documents required by the partner university. The Student Exchange Office will send you an email after 10 January which contains the corresponding information. The documents must be submitted by the deadline stated in the email. Most departmental programmes also list the required partner university documents on the respective information page>>.

Please note that partner universities reserve the right to reject students nominated by ETH Zurich.


***NEW*** - From the academic year 2014/15 onwards, students participating in worldwide exchange programmes receive a scholarship of CHF 1500.- per semester.
