St. Petersburg Polytechnic University continues to actively participate in international educational exhibitions aimed at attracting foreign applicants. Over the past month, the SPbPU international Office advised over three thousand foreigners from more than twenty countries, including India, China, Sri Lanka, the Philippines, South Korea, Bangladesh, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Mongolia, and others.

The 7th Russian educational online exhibition «Study in Russia-2022» (supported by Rossotrudnichestvo), which was held for an audience from Mongolia in a remote format, showed productive results. Along with Polytechnic University, 31 Russian universities from 16 regions of Russia took part in it. More than 13,530 people visited the online platform of the exhibition; in addition, more than 62 thousand participants were connected to its online broadcasts, Zoom-webinars, master classes and live broadcasts. Representatives of SPbPU held more than 700 consultations for potential international applicants and gave detailed information about the admission procedure, educational programs, education and student life.

Representatives of SPbPU participated in the IEF International Education Exhibition (supported by the Bolashaq Foundation) in person. The exhibition was aimed at the audience of Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan and was held in four cities: Nur-Sultan, Shymkent, Almaty and Tashkent. The total number of visitors exceeded 50,000 and more than 50 universities from around the world were represented at the exhibition. During the four days of the exhibition representatives of the international services of SPbPU consulted more than 2,000 potential foreign applicants. The participants showed the greatest interest in the bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in such spheres as IT, power engineering, construction, economics and management. In addition, a significant number of questions were about postgraduate programs, as well as about the possibility of obtaining a scholarship.

Let us remind you that there are several such opportunities. The first is to take part in the international Student Olympiad Open Doors: Russian Scholarship Project. The winners of this intellectual competition will be able to enter Master’s or PhD program at SPbPU without entrance exams and study absolutely free of charge (at the expense of the Russian Federation budget) in Russian or English. Registration for the Olympiad this year opened on September 15 and will last until December 23, 2022. One more opportunity for foreign applicants to enter Polytechnic University on a budget to study at undergraduate, graduate or postgraduate level is to apply for the quota of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russian Federation. You can learn more about this on the official website of SPbPU.

In the fall, Polytechnic University traditionally participates in a large pool of international online and offline exhibitions and webinars. We advertise budget admission opportunities and begin to advertise paid forms of study for the next academic year. Exhibitions, which were held in September and October, gave us a total of more than 500 targeted inquiries from potential international applicants. We plan that the next events of the fall advertising campaign will allow us to increase these figures, commented the director of the Center of International Recruitment and Communications Maria Bocharova.
