A student studying abroad with EuroScholars: Zurich - University of Zurich
So much. I don't know how to put it into words. It improved my scientific knowledge drastically and made me infinitely more confident. It also expanded my worldview and opened up many options for my future. - Roberts Wesleyan College View Entire Review

About

The program is especially designed for undergraduate (Honors) students from US / Canadian institutions who are interested in discovering their potential for a research career. A GPA of 3.4 or higher is also required. EuroScholars offers unique opportunities to spend a semester as a junior researcher at one of the top European research institutions. Supervision will be provided by academic staff, working on and/or responsible for the Research Project. 
The curriculum will consist of the Research Project (main element), literature review (independent study), elective (if applicable), and a language and culture course at the host university. Students earn up to a maximum of 30 ECTS (equivalent to 15 US semester credits).  Each semester a central European Midstay Program (2-3 days) is organized for all EuroScholars students.
