The SEMP (Swiss-European Mobility Programme) internship programme has replaced the Erasmus internship programme. This gives you the opportunity to complete an internship in a business, hospital, laboratory, school, etc. anywhere in the world and receive a grant for it.
- The internship must take place in a European country included on the list below.
- Any public or private-sector organisation can host an intern, except for the European institutions, EU bodies or organisations that manage EU programmes, and the diplomatic institutions of the student’s country of origin (embassy, etc.)
- The internship must last between two and 12 months.
- The grant is CHF 440 per month.
- The internship is recorded in the student’s diploma supplement.
- Students must be selected, at the latest, during their final year of study and before their final projects or examinations (without exception!) and must complete their internship abroad within a year of gaining their qualification at the latest. In this case, the internship is not recorded in the diploma supplement and a certificate of employment must be provided by the employer.
List of possible countries for an SEMP internship
- Find an internship (paid or unpaid) in a business, hospital, laboratory, school, etc. in a participating European country (see list above). See the internship offers published by the European Student Network ESN.
- Complete the "training agreement" form (see below) in conjunction with your faculty’s mobility coordinator and the host institution.
- Submit the form, completed and signed, to SASME. Note: the award of a grant depends on the funding available and is not guaranteed: grants are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis as applications are submitted.

- SASME will then send you a grant agreement to sign and return to it.
- At the end of your internship, complete the “Final report” form provided by SASME and return it to it.
