Languages in studies

With regard to the internationalisation of the academic world, to growing student mobility and to the globalisation of the labour market, the University of St.Gallen consistently emphasises multi-lingual competences. This is why all students at the University of St.Gallen have to provide evidence of knowledge of at least two foreign languages as a part of their academic work. Contextual Studies, in the area of Skills and Languages, offer courses and examinations that can be used to give evidence of appropriate linguistic competence in ten foreign languages.

Foreign languages form a part of the curriculum at the Bachelor’s level (i.e. including the Assessment Year). At the Master’s level, evidence of linguistic competence is only demanded as part of admission requirements.
