The University of Zurich's mission statement focuses very much on international networking and regional integration. National and international collaboration has led to diverse partnerships, promoting the exchange of students, researchers and lecturers.
The University of Zurich strives to establish targeted partnerships with institutions which are of interest to its institutes, departments and faculties. Applications from overseas partners are considered, provided they correspond with the fundamental orientation of the University of Zurich in terms of research and education and are acknowledged by the President's Office and the faculties based on their criteria for international collaboration.
More detailed information about the University of Zurich's diverse links with other institutions can be found on the website of the International Relations Office.
