As a Bachelor or Master student at one of our partner universities, your application for a guest stay at HSG needs to be processed by the International Office of your home university. Once your application has been checked by your International Office, the preliminary registration is handled by your home university with an electronic nomination process.
Nomination deadline for home university
After you have been nominated by your home university, you will receive a password and further information about the online application.
Application deadline for guest students
The online application is made via the Mobility-Online portal. You will be required to upload the following (personal) documents:
Once you have completed the tasks, they will automatically be checked off. After you have completed the tasks and the Student Mobility Office has checked your application, your Acceptance Letter will be transmitted.
After applying successfully for a guest stay at HSG, Student Mobility will formally check and approve your application. Following, you will be sent an e-mail with your user name and login for accessing Compass (the university's student portal). You will need this in order to access the bidding platform where the course allocation takes place. You can further prepare yourself by checking out the details at "Guest Studies at HSG – Academics" and "Organisation of your stay in Switzerland".
As a guest student at HSG, you need to be flexible in your course choices as the number of course slots is limited. Our experience has shown that guest students coming to St.Gallen during the last semester of their studies often do not have that flexibility.
