Offers for Outgoing Students

Opportunities for shorter and lengthier stays abroad during your studies.

Collaboration between individuals from different countries is becoming increasingly important in our globalized world. We offer you various exchange options to prepare yourself for later working life.

Exchange semester

FHNW students benefit from the university’s international connections. The FHNW network as a whole includes more than 300 well-known partner universities in all five continents. All FHNW students can take one or two semesters abroad at one of our partner universities.

You can find out details of procedures, requirements and costs on your school intranet when you start your degree programme. The International Office at your school will help you plan your semester abroad.

Each school has its own partner network, and each provides information on its partner universities.

Internships abroad

Immerse yourself in the everyday working life of a foreign country and get to know a whole different business culture. FHNW schools offer internships once you have enrolled on the relevant degree course.

Swiss-European Mobility Programme SEMP / Erasmus+

SEMP (transitional solution for Switzerland replacing Erasmus+) assists bachelor's and master's degree students who go abroad by providing financial support for studies and internships.

For further information on Erasmus+/SEMP, consult the International Office at your school or see Movetia.
