Academic degrees of St Petersburg University


The tradition that existed at the University from 1835 to 1918 was restored. Since 1 September 2016, in accordance with the Federal Law, St Petersburg University and Lomonosov Moscow University were granted the right to defend dissertations according to their own rules and to award their own academic degrees that are also recognised by the state. A year later, dissertations were defended for the first time in Russia to be awarded an academic degree from St Petersburg University.
