Young people consider it farsighted to get education abroad, and SPbPU students are no different. For many years, our university has been implementing various education programs together with our foreign partners. The university's international offices keep track of all options, analyze information, and suggest their students only the best education programs.

Global Education is one of such programs: launched in 2014, it saw the first student group go abroad to study at the best foreign universities. The program offers Russian citizens an opportunity to get education at the world's major universities and helps them find relevant employment. It also allows Russian employers to find and take into highly qualified, world-class experts.

Over 500 Russian companies, 32 countries, and 288 universities are currently involved in this project. Program participants can choose from five educational paths: science, engineering (including IT), education, medicine, and social management. A lot of students choose professions in engineering that are sough-after in the international labor market. In order to take part in the program, one must have a bachelor's or specialist's degree and matriculate to a foreign university on their own. Those wishing to continue their education must register on the website and collect all required documents.

After the program ends, students must return to Russia and land a job with one of the partner companies. Statistically, the most popular destinations are Great Britain, Austria, the USA, Germany, and the Netherlands. They guarantee a European level of education, quality curricula, and all-round training.
