SEMP - Swiss-European Mobility Programme

After the acceptance of the anti-immigration initiative in 2014, no agreement on the Swiss participation in the new Erasmus+ programme generation (2014-2020) could be reached with the European Commission. To ensure the continuity of mobility activities with the Erasmus+ programme countries, the Swiss government decided to develop an interim solution for Erasmus+ supported by Swiss funding. The Interim Solution für Erasmus+ for Higher Education is called Swiss-European Mobility Programme (SEMP) and follows the precepts of Erasmus+.
The participants of SEMP (Outgoing and Incoming Students) are financially supported from Switzerland by the Swiss National Agency Movetia.


The application for the Medical University of Vienna is an ONLINE-Application and no other application will be accepted.

The Access Code for the obligatory Online Application will exclusively be sent to students officially nominated by the partner university's International Office (first name, last name and E-Mail address) to the International Office of MedUni Vienna (


Due to the latest developments in the Covid-19 crisis, the suspension of student exchange programs has been extended to the 2021/ 22 winter term. Study stays and traineeships therefore cannot take place in the framework of SEMP before the start of the 2022 spring semester. The feasibility of student mobilities in the 2022 spring term will be evaluated at a later point in time. Further details will be published shortly.
