6 July 2015. Since the number of foreign prospective students must not exceed the 25 per cent quota stipulated by law, the HSG conducts a written admission test every year. This year, 579 candidates from 32 countries have put their names down for the admission test of the University of St.Gallen.
About 25 per cent can expect to be admitted. The contents of the test are provided by ITB Consulting in Bonn, Germany. The written part of the examination will take place on 8 July 2015 in St.Gallen’s Olma Halls 2.1 and 3.1. During the examination time, people accompanying the candidates will have an opportunity to go on a guided tour of the city starting from the Olma premises.
Test and interview
In the written test, five modules will be examined: cognitive skills such as text analysis, quantitative problem solving, language systems, diagram interpretation, as well as pattern recognition. Problem examples are available online.
Candidates who are borderline between admission and non-admission are additionally invited for an interview on the next day, which will constitute the basis for the final decision. In the 30-minute oral interview, candidates’ personalities will be looked into, with the focus on their sense of responsibility, critical faculty and social commitment.

This year’s candidates come from the following countries among others: Germany, Austria, Italy, France, Luxembourg, Norway, Belgium, the Netherlands, Spain, Ukraine, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, Poland, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Czech Republic, Tunisia, Hungary, Macedonia, South Korea, Kosovo, Croatia, Lebanon, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, China, Denmark, India, Iran.
