Incoming Students

The International Office supports exchange students upon their arrival in Switzerland and at the FHNW Academy of Art and Design. Together with the international students, they are invited to the International Student Activities of the FHNW, where they learn about student life on Campus and life in Switzerland.

The HGK FHNW has a growing network of partner universities, which provides the basis for exchange programs in Europe as well as worldwide. Exchange students from these partner universities can spend up to 12 months per study period (Bachelor‘s, Master‘s), which are funded by the Swiss-European Mobility Programme (SEMP).
