Global Affairs

Institutional Visits

The University of Zurich warmly welcomes representatives from partner institutions, embassies and other stakeholders from abroad that are interested in learning more about UZH's academic excellence in teaching and research.

Global Affairs is your first point of contact for institutional visits. We are happy to assist UZH faculty members as well as current and potential partners with visit requests that involve meetings with senior administrators and/or multiple units on campus.

Requesting an Institutional Visit

Prior to requesting a visit, please consider the following:

  • Is there clearly demonstrated mutual interest in developing a new collaboration or expanding an existing one?
  • Have the objectives of the visit been formulated to ensure clear outcomes?
  • Can these objectives be achieved via other means (phone, virtual meetings, email, etc.)?

If a visit is warranted, is not about a specific area (see below), and you require assistance from Global Affaris, please complete the following visitor's request form and return it to Global Affairs.

Visits concerning specific academic or research areas

If your visit is about a specific academic or research area, it is best to coordinate directly with the relevant UZH faculties or institutes.
