Swiss-European Mobility Programme grant

Swiss-European Mobility Programme (SEMP) funding will be available for both the 2020/21 and also the 2021/22 academic year.

The Swiss European Mobility Programme (SEMP) offers funding to students to study at a Swiss partner university for between three and 12 months. SEMP funding for students going to Switzerland is administered by the host university and not by Queen Mary.

As Queen Mary does not administer the SEMP grant, you should check with the partner university for full details about the SEMP grant, including how much you'll receive, when you should expect to receive it, and how to apply.

Please note that the SEMP grant is paid as flat-rate amount, independent of the exact duration of your stay. For example, if you are going on a single semester exchange you will receive funding for five months, and a full year exchange for ten months. The grant could be CHF 1,900.00 per semester, but please check with the respective Swiss partner.

You can find also find general information about the Swiss European Mobility Programme from Movetia, the Swiss National Agency for Exchange and Mobility.

Please note that SEMP funding is currently available for students going to the University of Zurich until and including 2022/23. We are awaiting confirmation about this from Geneva.
