Study abroad


In the framework of the Swiss European Mobility Program (SEMP), the federal government, through Movetia, makes it possible and provides funding for UNIGE students to participate in internships in EU member countries.

 Conditions of participation:

  •  It is possible to do an internship with any institution (other universities in Europe, public institutions, public or private organizations, NGOs, private companies...) as long as the internship is recognized by the faculty in the framework of the academic programme (either by the granting of ECTS credits or by being in the diploma supplement or transcript of studies). The academic supervisor must be able to ensure that the University will recognize the internship (exchange coordinator, programme director, academic advisor, dean).

  • The student may not do an internship in his or her place of residence.

  • The duration of the internship must be a minimum of 2 full months, and thex maximum is 12 months.
  • A duly completed and signed tripartite internship agreement between UNIGE, the host unit, and the student must be submitted to the Academic Exchange Office at least three months before the beginning of the internship.



The financing offered by Movetia is CHF 440.- per month. All financing from Movetia is subject to complete and accurate documentation.

Please contact the Pôle Santé Social for information on possible additional grants.


Once the agreement has been submitted, the student will receive from the Academic Exchange Office a personalized email message with an access code and a link permitting him or her to register online for the internship.


Please note that if you are a French citizen, living in France and doing your internship in a French institution, we will not be able to pay you a scholarship.
