Welcome

The International Office is responsible for building and maintaining relationships between domestic and international institutions of higher education. It organises study visits and placements for students as well as teaching and further training visits for faculty and staff. The International office also coordinates projects with both domestic and international partner institutions. 

The HfH participates in the European Union’s Lifelong Learning Programme (LLP). This enables the implementation of activities under the Erasmus, Grundtvig and Comenius sub-programmes.

The International Office maintains close relationships with the mobility centres of other Swiss institutions, the ch Foundation, SBF, CRUS, KFH and COHEP. This, along with its involvement in various international networks, guarantees high-quality services and enables it to profit from the effects of synergy.

Mobility

Visiting another institution within Switzerland, Europe or abroad offers an ideal opportunity to focus intensively on another system of higher education, another culture and a foreign language. A view of the new enables the rethinking of one’s own perceptions, ingrained learning and living habits and familiar working and teaching methods.

Outgoing

The International Office provides comprehensive advice and support with regard to study visits and placements for students as well as teaching and further training visits for faculty and staff. It serves as a point of contact for reaching the right person at the respective partner institutions.      

Incoming

For incoming students and staff from the HfH’s partner institutions, the international Office is the first port of call for all questions concerning a visit to the HfH and life in Zurich in general. The International Office cooperates with various departments to organise study programmes and explores the possibilities for placements and teaching / further training visits.
