About Us

The International Scholars Center is part of UZH Global Affairs. It was established in 2016 as a measure to improve the starting phase of new international staff at UZH and in Zurich.

The International Scholars Center serves as the main point of contact for new PhD candidates, postdoctoral researchers, guest researchers and technical or administrative staff from abroad. It provides assistance, advice and information on non-academic issues at UZH and on life in Zurich.

We can be reached by phone, e-mail or in person during our office hours or by previous appointment. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you need information or support before your arrival or during your stay in Zurich.
