Overseas students grab the opportunity to visit the magnificent St. Petersburg and broaden their knowledge.
Short education modules at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University have traditionally attracted youngsters from Europe, but in 2016 there is also a large group of Chinese students.
All programs are taught in English and take 1 to 3 weeks depending on the subject. Subjects are diverse: from Economics, IT, Civil Construction and Physics to Design and Russian Language. All modules are ECTS certified.
Every SPPU summer camp student has a tutor who takes care of her throughout her stay in Russia. Tutors are SPPU students, they help camp enrollees with any questions they might have. Tutors attend lectures and workshops together with students and take them to museums, picnics and strolls around the city after classes.
2016 summer camp participants say they enjoy being part of an international team. Russians are able to practice their conversational skills in English, while foreigners learn a little Russian and discover Russian culture and traditions.
