Semester for International Students Started in SPbPU
Within the frame of the international mobility program, a new educational semester for international students from partner universities started in February in SPbPU.
The semester began with a foundation week. The students had a kick-off meeting, a Teambuilding Day, a sightseeing tour around the city. They also visited SPbPU FabLab Polytech and had a tour around the campus.
65 students from Austria, Belgium, Columbia, Czeck Republic, Finland, France, Germany, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, the Netherlands and Chile have arrived to study in SPbPU.
“I’m very grateful to Polytech for the chance to take part in the academic exchange program and to study in Saint Petersburg. Communicating with students from other countries and practicing the Russian language is what I’m expecting from the semester,” said a student of Czeck Technical University.
The development and constant support of academic mobility programs is one of the priority directions of SPbPU international activities. It provides students with a variety of opportunities and advantages: acquiring priceless international experience in the academic field and studying and communicating in an international cross-cultural group. Moreover, they are able to improve their linguistic skills.
The International Academic Mobility Office claims a growing interest of international students in taking part in academic exchange programs. This tendency allows SPbPU to expand the partnership network and increase the level of its internationalization.
“We are glad to receive students from our partner universities all over the world, as international academic mobility is an important tool to form the global educational environment for every university,” said N.A. Stolyarova, the head of the Academic Mobility Office.
