The Università della Svizzera italiana, through its International Relations and Study-abroad Office, offers its students and others coming from Switzerland and abroad the following possibilities:
In addition to coordinating these programmes, the International Office cooperates with counterparts in similar services and central academic offices: Rectors' Conference of the Swiss Universities; National Agency; State Secretariat for Education, Research and Innovation. The Office is also responsible for procuring Erasmus studentships and other funding sources for study-abroad programmes.
The task of the International Relations office is to advise and select outgoing students as well as to accept, assist and welcome incoming (exchange and visiting) students. Therefore, students planning to take part in these programmes should address their enquiries directly to the service. The International Relations Office will then put in place the appropriate administrative procedure, and provide information and advice on various practical matters (e.g. residence permit, insurance, housing, etc.).
