Studying at More than One University
Minor Subject Mobility
If you are studying at another Swiss university you can do minor subjects at the University of Zurich if they are not offered by your home university §13 of the University of Zurich Regulations Governing Matriculation Procedures and Semester Enrollment.
You must register via Student Services (Student Administration Office). The usual dates and deadlines apply for application and admission. You pay only the application fees; you pay tuition to your home university.
At the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, at Bachelor's level you can choose minor study programs with 60 ECTS credits (please contact Student Services for exceptions with 30 ECTS credits). At Master's level 15- and 30-ECTS-credit programs are available. However, please note that 15-ECTS-credit Master's programs are closed for enrollment from Spring Semester 2019. If you are planning to take advantage of minor subject mobility for your Master's with a program of this size you should have commenced mobility by Fall Semester 2018 at the latest.
If you have successfully completed a minor subject at the University of Zurich, the Office of Student Affairs at the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences will send the confirmation of degree, including the overall grade, directly to your home university. Please register to complete the relevant study program before 30 October for the Fall Semester and before 30 March for the Spring Semester.
Organized Student Mobility (CH-Unimobil)
If you are studying at a Swiss University other than the University of Zurich, you have the option of studying for one or two semesters at UZH. You remain matriculated at and pay tuition to your home university. Before coming to study at UZH, please find out from student advisory services at your home university what academic achievements will be recognized.
The application procedure will be governed by your home university. If you have obtained a permit and are going to study at the University of Zurich, the International Relations Office or the Student Administration Office will e-mail you direct with information on the registration procedure.
Joint Degree Incoming Mobility
If you are matriculated at another Swiss university and are simultaneously attending courses at the University of Zurich that are offered by your home university and UZH as part of a joint degree program (for example Master in Comparative and International Studies CIS; Master's in Ancient Judaism; Master's in Religion, Economics, and Politics), then joint degree incoming mobility is relevant for you.
