The national Movetia agency supports, promotes and facilitates exchange and mobility in the field of formal, non-formal and informal education. Exchange and mobility activities and cooperation projects comprise, for example, class exchanges within Switzerland, European mobility programmes for all educational levels and partnerships (Erasmus+) at institutional level, specifically between educational establishments.

Exchange and mobility help strengthen language learning and cultivate better understanding between Switzerland’s language communities; promote the development of personal, social and technical skills among young people, students, apprentices and teachers; contribute to the quality, internationalisation and advancement of the Swiss education system and increase the system’s appeal to both Swiss and foreign nationals.
