Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Study Abroad Program

ETH Zürich is known throughout the world. Consistently ranked by all major World University rankings among the top universities in the world, it is considered the best university in continental Europe by the Shanghai Ranking ARWU, the Times Higher Education Ranking and the QS World University Ranking. It is currently ranked 8th best university in the world in engineering, science and technology and 2nd in Europe after the University of Cambridge.

The language of instruction at ETH is German. However, there are a limited number of courses that are taught in English. These are going to be upper-division courses intended for upper-division undergraduate students and master's students.

Weldon School students may participate in this program only in the spring semester of their junior year. An email will be sent to Weldon School students with a link to the online application in mid-spring semester each year.
