The Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts welcomes not only full-time degree students, but also exchange students from numerous partner universities from all over the world.
The majority of incoming exchange students come from other European countries through the Swiss European Mobility Programme SEMP (former ERASMUS), but we also foster links with partner universities across the world through our international exchange programme.
Students from the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts who want to study abroad for either a semester or a whole year can find information here on our partner network around the world.
We welcome exchange students from partner universities around the world, including SEMP (former ERASMUS) students from European partner universities.
We have exchange agreements with more than 200 partner institutions of higher education in more than 40 countries around the world. Students who would like to spend a single semester or entire year abroad have a wide range of places to choose from.
Information on environmentally friendly travel
Within the framework of the mobility programme, as many people as possible (students and staff) who embark on a SEMP mobility should travel in an environmentally friendly manner, i.e. choose a means of transport such as train or bus for their outward and return journey. In principle, the requirement of environmentally friendly travel applies to European mobilities. An environmentally friendly journey is taken into account for the subsidy by awarding a lump sum of CHF 100 more. The following criteria must be met:
- the exchange semester is funded and takes place at a partner institution (Outgoing) or at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts (Incoming)
- the journey to and from the destination country was demonstrably made by public transportation (train, bus) – tickets must be presented
- the name is visible on the tickets
The amount is paid out once (even if the stay is extended).
The final decision as to whether a travel grant of CHF 100.00 can be awarded is the responsibility of the relevant International Office.
