Where You Will Study

University of Zurich (UZH) is ranked 4th of 123 European Universities and 23rd of 500 worldwide by Shanghai’s Jiao Tong University, which developed one of the first worldwide university rankings. The new efforts of the Finance Department make the University of Zurich a major player for finance education in Europe. This expansion is also reflected in the number of courses offered in English.

The Swiss Banking Institute (SBI) of the University of Zurich sets the engagement in internationally competitive theoretical, analytical, empirical and applied research in Banking and Finance as its research goal. SBI aims at providing an internationally competitive education in finance and banking at the bachelor’s, the master’s and the PhD. levels, and encourages the development of high level knowledge transfer activities such as seminars, conferences and executive master programs that are meant to sharpen the financial expertise available within the Swiss financial services industry.

Program Expenses, Financial Aid & Scholarships

As a participant of a university exchange, you pay an exchange fee equivalent to UW tuition (1.5 quarters of UW tuition for semester-long exchanges, and 3 quarters of UW tuition for academic year exchanges). Exchange fees are determined by UW residency status: in-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to in-state tuition, and out-of-state students pay an exchange fee equivalent to out-of-state tuition. The exchange fee and IPE administrative fee are charged to your UW account and due by the UW tuition deadline for your term(s) of study abroad. You should also budget for additional expenses such as international airfare & transportation, books & course materials, visa & passport fees, study abroad insurance and personal expenses.

For the total estimated costs of this particular program, you may request a budget by filling out a Budget Request Form.

Application Process

Departmental Exchanges generally focus on a specific academic discipline and often restrict participation to students in that department.  Applications and student selection for Departmental Exchanges are managed by the UW academic department, but students participating in Departmental Exchanges work with the UW Study Abroad Office to complete the same pre-departure requirements as other UW study abroad students.

If you are interested in a Departmental Exchange, contact the department coordinator listed above for information, application instructions and deadlines.  

Most application deadlines occur 6-8 months in advance of an exchange start date, so contact your department early.
