Current status of the Swiss-European Mobility Program (Erasmus+)
Following the passage of the mass immigration initiative, the EU suspended negotiations concerning the participation of Switzerland in the EU’s Erasmus+ program and reclassified Switzerland as a third country on 26 February 2014. On 7 March 2014, the Federal Council adopted a temporary solution that will allow Switzerland to participate indirectly in the Erasmus+ student exchange program.
A of 2016/17 students can indirectly participate in the Erasmus program as long as the respective partner university agrees to it. The federal government finances these scholarships. The size of these scholarships remains to be determined.
