Studium International Student Mobility PHSG

Student Mobility 

Are you interested in studying at the PHSG for one semester? Or are you interested in leaving the PHSG for one semester to study elsewhere? The PHSG offers you the opportunity to spend a semester studying at one of its partner institutions in Switzerland, Europe or another part of the world.


There are two options open to you if you want to complete a guest semester at the PHSG.

•    If your command of German is at B2 level or above, you can choose to study within the regular German-language curriculum and attend a degree course for either kindergarten and primary school level teaching or for secondary school level teaching.
•    In the spring semester, you can choose to attend the International Class, which is taught in English.

Would you like to spend an exchange semester at the PHSG studying in English?

Join our International Class PHSG run every spring semester.


The tourist destination St.Gallen-Lake Constance is just one hour’s drive from Zurich and is also easily accessible with public transportation. 
Austria and Germany can be reached in just a short time, and the region is well situated for excursions to the mountains or on nearby Lake Constance. You couldn’t ask for a more central location, as it is positioned at the centre of the international conjunction formed by Switzerland, Germany, Austria and the Principality of Liechtenstein, allowing you to reach the St.Gallen-Lake Constance region quickly and comfortably.
