Funding and tuition fees

Tuition fees

During their project students remain registered at EPFL and continue to pay EPFL’s tuition fees. For exchanges in non-partner universities, certain taxes or tuition fees can be claimed by the host institution. It is therefore highly recommended to inquire with the host university about their policy as soon as possible.


Exchange at ETHZ or in one of the 4 research Institutes of the ETH Board (EAWAG, EMPA, PSI, WSL).
Allowance of CHF 500 for the whole project.

Exchange through an agreement with one of our partner universities in Europe (payment of this scholarship will depend on the field of study and the number of exchange spots available).
CHF 380 per month (flat rate of 5 months).
