International mobilities
In addition to the mobility from other Swiss universities and to the SEMP programme, subject to the agreements and the availability of the degree courses, it is possible to attend a period at SUPSI as a mobility student for part of the thesis writing, in agreement with the home university.

By agreement between the university of origin and SUPSI, it is possible to carry out a period at our university to develop or collect data for the writing of one's thesis. The request for such a collaboration must come from the university of origin, after assessment of the type of activity and its contents.
In addition to the above agreement, the collaboration must be formalised through a named training agreement and all insurances and permit conditions subject to the collaboration must be verified.


If you are coming either from a EU/EFTA or a non-EU/EFTA country and you need to apply for a Visa or permit to reside in Switzerland during your mobility, the application must be carried out via our online portal Mobility Online through this Application form.

For all other cases, or if you are in doubt about what procedure to follow, please refer to your contact in SUPSI.
