Mobility Advisors per Field of Study ("Departmental Coordinators")
Every subject with a SEMP-exchange agreement must provide a designated departmental coordinator. This person is often also responsible for student exchanges with non-European universities (Faculty-Agreements). Departmental coordinators also function as the liason between students, lecturers and Global Student Experience.
- Advise outgoing students on subject-specific and academic issues, issues regarding transfer of credits and subject-specific exchange opportunities, as well as discussing and signing of Learning Agreements for SEMP-students.
- Advise incoming students on the range of UZH courses, signing of Learning Agreements for SEMP-students, and signing off on tentative study plans for students coming to UZH within university-wide exchange agreements.
- Negotiation of subject-specific exchange agreements and cultivating contact to partners
- Disseminating information on the range of exchange opportunities to UZH students
The primary functions of departmental coordinators are the nomination as well as the assessment of students' application documents on Mobility Online. Please note that all activities related to student mobility are processed on this database.

Staff Mobility for Teaching Assignments (STA)
Taking on a teaching assignment at a European partner university helps instructors improve their teaching skills and develop an international network. The Swiss-European Mobility Programme supports staff mobility for teaching appointments with an allowance for travel and living expenses.
Staff Mobility for Training (STT)
The Swiss-European Mobility Programme enables university employees to pursue further training at a European partner university or a European company with the aim of promoting dialogue between Swiss and European institutions. Types of trainings include job-shadowing, short working periods, or attending workshops.
