Key data on mobility

USI participates actively in student exchange programmes.

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 2019-2020, in spite of the pandemic that impacted mainly on the spring semester, the previous year's figures were essentially confirmed. In particular, there were 91 outgoing students and 105 incoming students, ensuring a good balance between USI students and visiting students.

The majority of students (60%) 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 with 46 students. Most incoming students are hosted by the Faculty of Economics and the Academy of Architecture (respectively with 34 and 30 students).
