As its name, Open Doors is open and transparent competition, it allows different students from different world corners to join it and have an opportunity to get the free scholarship. So I just did not lose the chance and participated. I heard about Open Doors competition from my senior friends who study in Moscow, they guided me and told about this scholarship program. I selected Polytech because it's one of high-ranked universities not only in Russia, but also in the world educational rankings, - said Zada Wogen Yigebahal, a student of Institute of Energy of SPbPU.
The Open Doors International Olympiad is the first project in Russia to attract talented international students to study in the leading Russian universities, covering almost all countries of the world. The Olympiad is conducted online in Russian and English in two stages. In the first stage, participants need to submit their portfolios through the special information platform developed on the Olympiad website. At the second stage, participants have to perform Olympiad tasks, which will be held in the mode of participant identification and online control. Participants of the postgraduate student track on the results of two stages are interviewed by potential scientific supervisors.
