Fachhochschule St. Gallen (FHS) is a regionally based university of applied sciences with a strong focus on practice and application. More than 1700 students are currently enrolled in one of the four departments Health, Social Work, Technical Science and Business Administration.

The FHS has been founded in 2001 as a result of a merger of different universities. Nowadays the four departments offer Bachelor and consecutive Master degrees. Moreover, the university of applied sciences St. Gallen offers seminars, certificate courses and federally recognised postprofessional Master programmes.
