Finding an internship
- Tools and resources
To promote international placement Swiss Confederation and the Career Service provide scholarships for an internship abroad.
The principal requirements for the award of the scholarships are:
To be enrolled in one of USI Master or Bachelor programmes when requesting the scholarship (only Master for the BIP scholarships)
To carry out a full-time internship for a minimum of 2 months.
Reside in a country other than the one in which the internship takes place
Please Remember that:
The funding period is from 1 June 2019 to 30 September 2020
80% of the funding is awarded at the beginning of the internship and the remaining 20% at the end of the internship
Scholarships can be used up to 12 months after graduation.
In the event of interruption or cancellation of the internship, the grant must be returned to USI.
The SEMP program (Swiss-European Mobility Program) is funded by the Swiss Confederation and allows you to receive funding for internships held in one of countries participating in the SEMP Programme (former Erasmus+)
Application requirements and rules:
To carry out an internship in a non-EU country other than Switzerland, it is possible to benefit from the BIP (Career Service scholarships for international placement) provided by the Careers Service.
The awarding of the scholarship will depend on available funds on the "first come - first served" basis; no merit-based selection will be made.
