Our mobility programmes for students, lecturers and employees provide you with the opportunity to experience student life at the PHSG as our guest. By participating in a guest semester, you will gain valuable insights into the structure and content of our study courses, and be able to complete an internship in the region. You will also get to know the educational and cultural landscape in Eastern Switzerland.

Welcome to the St.Gallen University of Teacher Education (PHSG)

To share students’ every day life, make new contacts, gain an insight into life in a Swiss city in eastern Switzerland – if you would like to do so – you are the ones we are looking for. Depending on your previous education, you can choose offers for future kindergarten teachers, primary or lower secondary school teachers. The PHSG is a middle-sized university with a personal touch.

The academic education is completed by internships in local schools. You get the opportunity to discover a teacher’s professional life.

Various types of leisure-time activities complete the picture and let eastern Switzerland become a wish-destination for guest students.
