Events to promote the Admission campaign take place in different formats. One of the most popular are webinars for international applicants, where participants can not only learn the features of enrollment and training at a particular university, but also hear the opinions of foreign students who already study at SPbPU.

Dmitry Fominykh, coordinator of educational programs at the Russian House in Buenos Aires, served as moderator between SPbPU and the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in Argentina. Polytechnic University was represented by Anna Kolotayeva, assistant professor of the Higher School of Engineering Pedagogy, Psychology and Applied Linguistics Ekaterina Shostak and Polytechnic University students from Argentina, Colombia and Venezuela Evelyn Sosa, Santiago Ochoa Moreno and Santiago Lopez Tatis.

The foreign participants learned about the opportunities for admission to Polytechnic University. Representatives of Polytechnic University once again reminded that to enter the university by the quota, it is necessary to register on the portal of the information system until February 20, 2023, and when filling out the application form choose Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University as a number one priority.

We are very grateful to Rossotrudnichestvo for their willingness to support our initiatives and the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, commented Maria Bocharova, director of the Center for International Recruitment and Communications. In 2022, the number of students who entered Polytechnic University by quota increased by almost a hundred. Thus, SPbPU recruited almost 500 students — this is a decent result and a great joint work with the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation and Rossotrudnichestvo.
