International Department maintains close links with its counterparts across the world: over 200 universities from Argentina, Brazil, Italy, Canada, China, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Slovakia, USA, Finland, Switzerland, Japan and many others are our partners.
Thanks to the intense international activity and wide recognition of the Department abroad our students have a unique opportunity to receive a truly international education. For our students such thing as student mobility is not just an abstract notion but an indispensible part of their study program.
Each semester our students can spend a couple of months studying at one of the partner universities. A combination of language practice and an intense study program in the chosen area makes such trips extremely useful, exciting and memorable.
Annually over 40 public events are held by the International Department. Such kind of events include: public lectures of Russian and foreign distinguished scientists, politicians, businessmen, diplomats; international conferences, workshops, round tables and so on. Visits of guest lecturers, the leading faculty members of the world’s major universities introduce the students to a wide range of assessments of and views on the topical problems in international relations offered by the representatives of different scientific trends and schools. Such lectures and seminars stimulate a lot of interest and are very popular among the students. The Department also cooperates actively with international organizations, forums, General Consulates in Saint-Petersburg and regularly arranges joint projects.
In the framework of an ongoing dialogue with foreign states’ missions in the Russian Federation the Department is often visited by their representatives. Besides, such high-ranking foreign officials as ministers or senior civil servants also deliver lectures or give talks at the School during their official visits to the “Northern Capital”.
Thus, our students get practical experience of communicating with top-rank officials from the Russian Federation and abroad from first days of their study.
