Key data on mobility

USI participates actively in student exchange programs.

Over the years, the number of USI students and of students from partner universities who spend a period of study abroad has remained steady. In the academic year 2015-2016, the number of students taking part in an exchange program was 206, whereas in the previous year it was 212. The balance between incoming and outgoing students is uneven, probably the result of the decision made by the European Commission to suspend the negotiations on Switzerland's association to Erasmus+.

The majority of students took part in the SEMP program (the temporary solution drawn up by the Federal Council). The USI Faculty with the highest number of outgoing students is the Faculty of Economics. Incoming students are hosted equally between the Academy of Architecture (27), the Faculty of Economics (30) and the Faculty of Communication Sciences (28).
