On 22 February, there will be an opportunity to get directly from the teaching staff relevant information about the unique programme, admission rules, and career opportunities. Everyone interested in the programme will also be able to ask their questions in real time.

The programme is taught in English and aimed at students interested in mathematics and theoretical computer science. State-of-art training courses make it possible to specialise in a wide range of areas: mathematical analysis and probability theory; theoretical computer science; discrete mathematics and mathematical logic; algebra and number theory; geometry and topology; differential equations; dynamical systems; and mathematical physics.

The presentation in English will be held at 2pm (Moscow time). The webinar in Russian will be at 3pm.

Students of the programme ‘Advanced Mathematics’ gain access to top scientific developments – courses are conducted by world-famous scientists. The academic supervisor of the programme is Stanislav Smirnov, a winner of the Fields Prize: the most prestigious award in mathematics in the world. His scientific achievements, experience and a network of contacts provide the programme with a truly international orientation. Stanislav Smirnov, a graduate of St Petersburg University, studied and worked at the California Institute of Technology, Princeton University, the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in Bonn, the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, and the University of Geneva. Students have the opportunity to participate in seminars and research projects of the Chebyshev Laboratory. The programme is implemented in close collaboration with it. The laboratory has been established at St Petersburg University and is supported by PJSC Gazprom Neft and the Russian Science Foundation. The laboratory conducts research in analysis, algebra, probability theory, mathematical physics, and related fields. Leading Russian and foreign mathematicians regularly deliver special courses and conduct colloquia.  

Training in English opens up opportunities for graduates to fulfil their potential in global studies and in the international labour market. During their studies, students have practical training in large Russian and European IT companies such as Yandex and JetBrains.
