Tyumen State University, or the University of Tyumen (UT), was the first university in the Tyumen Oblast. Founded in 1930, TSU produces top-notch specialists in 170 fields. The university has partner universities nearly all over the world and UT aims to provide a flexible, open, and innovative education. Today, the UT is one of Russia’s most rapidly developing large classical universities. The university has 15 buildings in the historical part of the city all within walking distance of each other. Not only can students obtain double degree programs, but they can also conduct research anywhere in the country – for instance, on the Black Sea coast or at Lake Baikal.
Both the academic buildings and the student dormitories are in the city center. Students can choose between four renovated dormitories that offer one-, two-, or three-room units equipped with everything they need for life and study.
During their free time, students can enjoy Tyumen’s active life, one of Russia’s most rapidly growing cities, as well as the university’s rich extracurricular life. They can also go skiing in the conifer forest at the university's country sports center or swim in the university's pool.
Tyumen State University is the region's main university and effectively combines an innovative approach to education with respect for the traditions developed over 85 years. Quality is the top priority of education UT, while life in Tyumen is comfortable and convenient.
