The campus of the University of St.Gallen presents itself as a clearly structured, compact development with a modern infrastructure. The campus is also a place of culture and art: works by artists such as Arp, Miró, Braque, Cucchi, Giacometti and Richter are engaged in a unique dialogue with the buildings designed by the architects Walter M. Förderer and Bruno Gerosa.[ad]hoc is the Student Union's campus bar. In a relaxed atmosphere, our students serve coffee and muffins, beers and, on Fridays, Weisswürste (veal sausages).
To keep body and mind in balance, the University provides a gym, weights rooms, football pitch, tennis, basketball and beach volleyball courts. The University's attractive location between Lake Constance and the Alps makes St.Gallen an ideal setting for all kinds of leisure activities, such as rock-climbing and sailing.The so-called Three Ponds are only a few minutes walk from the city centre: the three small lakes on a hill on the outskirts of the city serve as public swimming pools in the summer and as ice rinks in cold winters. The Peter and Paul Wildlife Park is situated near the University and is popular with students who want to go jogging and walking.
About 120 student associations and initiatives contribute to a rich and diverse university life. These associations range from international ones such as the Scandinavian Society, Asia Club and the Club Latino to sports associations like the St.Gallen Lacrosse Club, St.Gallen Sailing and the UniSGolf Club. But cultural associations like ProArte, an orchestra and the HSG Big Band also contribute towards the wide variety of leisure opportunities.The University of St.Gallen?s students also organise events of international significance:
The University of St.Gallen is committed to maintaining its high standard of education, which is internationally recognised, as well as its excellent quality of service on campus. Thus the HSG has earned the EQUIS (2001) and AACSB (2003) accreditations and consequently has obtained the two most demanding international seals of approval for business schools.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
The quality of the campus as well as the teaching is great. What could be improved is for the programmes to be more introvert friendly, as it is an almost purely extrovert based university structure.
It was an amazing exchange. I can definetly recommand TAMK to everyone.
The accomodation costs around 500-700eur per month. Food is also more expensive than in most of other countries, especially meat and fish. Therefore, if there is an opportunity, better drive to Germany or Austria for grocery shopping.
