I have been studying at this wonderful university for 7 years now. One year I studied at the foundation faculty, then my Bachelor's Degree took 4 years to complete, and 2 years – the Master's Degree program. I defended my Master's thesis. And this is where my education ends. It's sad on the one hand, because I love studying and living here in a beautiful city, at the best university (in my opinion) and with great friends. My studies has not always been easy. Becoming an engineer is not an easy path. Especially for a girl, it's a lot of work. Thanks to good teachers, I learned a lot of new things. And I had a good group and good friends, my classmates. They supported me and helped me throughout the training!

My major is “Mathematics and Computer Science”.
After graduating from school, I wanted to study abroad, but I could not immediately choose the university. Thanks to the information provided on the website of the Ministry of Education of the Republic of the Congo, I learned that St. Petersburg Polytechnic University carries out a good engineering education.
The university provides a really high education. The curriculum is not easy, the teachers are demanding, but if they see that the students are interested, they are willing to work extra hours. For example, I did not have the opportunity to master the basic programming languages, C, C++ and Pascal, before entering the university. Here I quickly mastered my skills from scratch. In the future I hope to continue my studies and get a Master's Degree.

I graduated from the foundation educational programme, where I studied Russian for a year. I recommend to all international students to take this course, as it is a great opportunity to learn Russian. All teachers are very good and friendly.
Now I'm finishing my Master's Degree, and I really like my study department. The teachers treat me very well and always try to convey knowledge to students. In addition to economic subjects, I liked the fact that we had 2 more foreign languages and some subjects were taught in English. I also had the opportunity to have an exchange semester in Finland when I was a 3rd year student. In general, I liked studying at SPbPU, especially living in St. Petersburg, that is in my opinion the most beautiful city with a huge number of different opportunities.

This is a good University. I love studying here because there are good teachers who teach well. I like the teaching method that our teachers use. They help us learn Russian faster. I met a lot of good friends here.

I believe I made the right choice, entering Peter the Great St.Petersburg Polytechnic University. My first four years before the getting my bachelor's degree passed very quickly. After graduating with honors and winning a grant for further education I started my master’s degree.

I think it's great to study at the Polytechnic University, because there are good professors, well equipped classes, I like the language laboratory and the computer class. I like that the teachers have included St. Petersburg sightseeing tours in the program. There is an amazing infrastructure and many student activities from sports to different clubs and communities.

I came to Russia from Latvia in 2015. Since my early childhood I wanted to become a design engineer. Here, at the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, Materials and Transport, my dream has gradually began to come true. I study in the area of Design and technological support of machine-building industries, I study automotive technology. At first it was not easy to study in the Bachelor’s degree program, but now, in the Master’s degree program, it is much easier.
I started thinking about the Master’s degree program right after completing my Bachelor’s degree program. Here, at Polytechnic University, I was told about the Open Doors Olympiad for foreign students. And once again I thought, why not? What will I lose if I try? And I decided to take this chance too. Participation in the Olympiad is definitely worth it. Trying is not torture: as I said, you have nothing to lose if you try.
«If there is a chance, it must be used!»
I came to Russia 5 years ago from Uzbekistan. I learned about the Olympiad here, at Polytechnic University. It is quite simple to take part in it: you need to apply through the website, attach your education certificate, fill out a questionnaire, and attach various diplomas, certificates, scientific publications, etc. In the second round, participants perform tasks on specialized subjects; examples of tasks are available on the website; one can be view them and practice.
I told all my friends and acquaintances about this Olympiad, and now even more people will learn about it through interviews. Of course, it’s a little scary to decide to participate. But why not give it a try? Example tasks are on the website of the Olympiad, it is very easy to prepare. This year, the organizers have added the possibility for postgraduate students to enter the Olympiad, as well as many new programs. So you can enter almost any specialty and area of studies.
«Participation in the Open Doors Olympiad is absolutely cool!»
I came from Uganda. While studying at Bachelor’s prodram in mechanical engineering in Polytech I saw a poster about the Olympiad, read more about it on the Internet, and realized that this was a pretty good chance! In my Master’s degree, I wanted to do something related to economics, because I work in this area. Therefore, I chose the «Digital Finance, Economics and Business Analytics» program.
The organizers of the Olympiad are great, they are ready for cooperation and open to communication. If you have any questions, they will answer you in detail. The Olympiad website is clear and easy to use. And there are many universities to choose from!
