Where You Will Study
ETH Zurich was founded in 1855, and has since become one of the leading international universities for technology and the natural sciences. ETH Zurich regards itself as an institution with regional and national roots that is fully integrated in the international academic community. It measures itself in all respects against the world’s leading universities – from its education and research to its management. As a global research focused university, ETH has connected with the University of Washington's CSE department to provide one or two CSE undergraduates the opportunity to study in Zurich.
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.
In addition, ETH offers a monthly stipend, which may be split depending on how many students are accepted to the program.

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.
Full-year exchange is encouraged, but single semester exchange is possible. Space is limited; students must apply through CSE and be selected. Students should plan primarily for senior/masters-level computer science & engineering courses abroad.
