Due to the limitation of course slots, you need to be flexible in your course choices as a guest student at HSG. According to our experience, guest students coming to St.Gallen during the last semester of their degree studies are not that flexible anymore. Therefore, we make you aware of the possible troubles, an unflexibility of course choices could cause, during your last semester of your studies.
In case of a successful application, original transcripts and original certified translations (if applicable) must be handed in to Student Mobility at the beginning of the exchange semester.
