StartWeek 2020 The StartWeek 2021 takes place from 13 to 17 September. StartWeek as the beginning of your studies Since 2001 the new students have been gathering every year for a week before the start of the semester to familiarise themselves with their new surroundings during the University of St.Gallen's (HSG) StartWeek. The StartWeek is integral to the HSG's Assessment Year and prepares first-year students for everyday campus life and for their new role at the university. The StartWeek 2021 is supported for the eighth time by our presenting partner "Helvetia Insurance". StartCase, InfoSessions and new surroundings Every StartWeek is dedicated to a specific topic, which students explore with the help of a case study. This year's topic is again "Artificial Intelligence". In addition to the case study, students attend various InfoSessions on the university's administrative system, teaching and learning system, IT structure and library. Information about the books and scripts for the first semester can be found here. 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.
