International experience from home
Plans don't always work out and sometimes you are forced to rethink things. Whether it be difficult travel conditions, an important part-time job or family commitments that make a physical exchange semester impossible at the moment. Because of this reason there is the opportunity to follow courses virtually.
All students enrolled at the University of Lucerne can participate in the virtual courses offered by our partner universities. Participation is usually free of charge.
After you have completed the courses, you will receive an official certificate of achievement from the partner university. Please ensure that you discuss the transfer of your credits with your study advisor in advance.
Here you will find an overview of the virtual courses offered by our partner universities. Further information on course content, course times, ECTS, etc. can be found directly on the universities' websites.
If you find other virtual course offerings, please contact the International Relations Office and we will be happy to clarify whether a visit is possible.

The University of Tasmania recognizes that many students travel plans have been effected by COVID-19 with many having to defer or cancel their exchange programs to Tasmania. In response to this we are offering students from study abroad and exchange partners the opportunity to take one of our classes online as a virtual exchange experience.
Further course offerings will be published here as soon as we receive them. Should you be interested in taking virtual courses at one of our partner universities, please don't hesitate to get in touch with us so that we can proactively look into further opportunities together.
