Starting from 1 February 2019, the St Petersburg University International Admissions Office accepts documents from international applicants to bachelor's, master's, specialist's degree and doctoral programmes (contractual places).

All applicants, irrespective of the chosen programme and mode of study, must upload their documents to their Personal Accounts. The access to Personal Accounts is granted from 1 February to 6 July 2019.

Bachelor's and specialist degree programmes

Applicants looking to be accepted to bachelor's and specialist's degree programmes must pass on-campus admissions tests. To plan your trip to St Petersburg in advance, we recommend you to look up the schedule.

Master's and doctoral programmes

Admissions tests for applicants to master's and doctoral programmes are held by correspondence in the form of a competitive selection of documents (portfolios). The portfolio must include a motivation letter, documents confirming the applicant's academic level and the level of proficiency in the language, in which the educational programme is taught, as well as additional individual achievements (if any).

Applicants to doctoral programmes must submit, in addition to the motivation letter, a description of their planned research project, a CV and an abstract of their master’s thesis.
