Before Leaving Switzerland

Experience Report

At the end of your exchange you will have to write an experience report on Mobility Online. We will publish your report on our website if you give us your permission to do so. Experience reports are an important guideline for potential future exchange students from our partner universities.

Confirmation of Student Exchange

If you need a confirmation of your student exchange at the University of Zurich for your home institution (“Certificate of Attendance”), please come to the Global Student Experience Office before you leave Switzerland.

This information does not apply to international Master's students (i.e. students completing a full degree at UZH).

Notice of Departure and Canceling your Swiss Health Insurance

A few days before you leave Switzerland, you must hand in your identity card for foreign nationals at the local residents' registration office. In the city of Zurich, you have to do this at the Stadthaus, Stadthausquai 17, 8001 Zürich (not at the Kreisbüro). We recommend that you make a copy of your identity card so you still have a Swiss document to identify yourself with. Please take your passport with you when you go to the Stadthaus.


You will receive a confirmation of your notice of departure for CHF 20.-. If you have taken out a Swiss health care policy, you will need this confirmation to cancel it.
