Also in the lists of countries are Brazil, China, Nicaragua, Sudan, Zimbabwe, India, Indonesia, Egypt, Afghanistan, Mozambique, Moldova, and Kenya.

More than 30 foreign applicants chose SPbPU based on Open Doors results

Let us remind you that the Open Doors Olympiad allows foreign applicants to choose for further studies in Russian and English the programs offered by Russian universities - members of the Global Universities Association. Winners of the Olympiads, who have made their choice in favor of Polytechnic University, plan to continue their education in different fields of study – power engineering and electrical engineering, biotechnology, mechanical engineering, construction, business and informatics, management, and linguistics.

Earlier we have already published an interview with winners of Open Doors competitions of previous years. A student from Uzbekistan Nina KOLOSOVA studies at SPbPU thermal power engineering, Tony MAYAMBALA from Uganda masters digital finance, economics, and business analytics, and Dmitry PROSHKIN from Lithuania made his choice in favor of automobile construction technologies. All of them also once took part in competitive tests of the Olympiad, and they proved by their example that entering a Russian university is realistic. And thanks to the variety of SPbPU educational programs, everyone will be able to find something to their liking, study, and develop to become a sought-after specialist and expert in their field in the future.
