Resource opportunities for research

The programme is implemented either at the resource centres of the Research Park of St Petersburg University or using the equipment of research organisations with which St Petersburg University has close scientific ties.


Our advantages

  • The possibility for each student to develop an individual learning path in offered areas;
  • Training is focused on: acquiring practical skills in conducting independent research; the ability to present findings of research, conduct academic discussions and participate in teaching activities;
  • Research areas are extremely popular in the modern world, which, in its turn, contributes to graduates being highly in demand.
