StartWeek 2022 The StartWeek 2022 takes place from 12 to 16 September. StartWeek as the beginning of your studies Since 2001, new students have been gathering every year for a week before the start of the semester to familiarise themselves with their new surroundings at the University of St.Gallen (HSG) during the StartWeek. The StartWeek is integral to the Assessment Year at the HSG and prepares beginning students for everyday campus life and for their new role at the university. Case study, administrative integration and new surroundings Every StartWeek is dedicated to a specific topic, which students explore with the help of a case study. In addition to the case study, students receive an administrative introduction into the study, teaching and learning systems, IT structure and the library. Information about the books and scripts for the first semester can be found at the Skriptekommision. The StartWeek also enables students to get to know each other. The relationships that are formed during this week often last throughout the time of your studies.
