The international cooperation is one of leading directions of SPSUACE activity. Coordination of the international activity is implemented by the Department of international education and cooperation which tasks include working out strategy and organization of the international activity of the University, interaction with foreign partners and international organizations abroad and in the country, support of activity of high school divisions concerning working out and implementation of international agreements, programs, projects and training foreign experts.

SPSUACE has 60 long-term agreements on cooperation with universities from Austria, Bulgaria, Great Britain, Vietnam, Germany, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, China, Lithuania, Latvia, Makedonia, Namibia, the Netherlands, Poland, USA, Serbia, Slovak republic, Uzbekistan, Finland, France, Montenegro, Czech Republic and others. These agreements presuppose cooperation in the following activities:

  • student exchanges (international practical trainings), post-graduate student exchanges, internships, exchange of professors and scientific workers;
  • academic term (1-2 semesters) in the partner-universities;
  • realization of mutual scientific programmes and projects, on the basis of which University’s scientists publish monographs and scientific articles, manuals and study-guides together with foreign partners.

Since 2009 Double Degree Programmes have being implemented with two Finnish partner-universities. Students of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and the Faculty of Environmental Engineering can receive a second Bachelor degree diploma (from Finland) after covering a year of training in the partner-university.

Within the frame of the agreements on cooperation concluded with the partners – higher educational institutions – students of the university can undergo practical hours in Germany, Italy, Bulgaria, Poland, Montenegro and India.

Mutual student projects are of great importance. Thus, students from Germany and SPSUACE created mutual designs of reconstructing “Red triangle” factory and Hamburg square (Saint Petersburg). Moreover, students of the university can take part in various academic mobility programmes. Students and professors of the Faculty of architecture participated in the international contest workshop in Florence and the international design seminar in Venice (Italy), workshop on architecture in HafenCity University of Hamburg (Germany).

For the further progress of the international educational cooperation it is really very important to invite foreign professors to read lectures, to participate in scientific conferences, foreign language tests held for our students, to participate in workshops. The University invites best foreign specialists in priority education directions.

Within the frame of the annual Week of Germany in Saint Petersburg there are held open lectures by invited successfully working specialists, representatives of state authorities in architecture and urban planning. In 2016 there worked an exhibition «Hans Sharun, the architect of dream» and Dm. Sukhin, the councillor of the Berlin society of G.Sharun read a lecture devoted to the original and most known German architect, one of leading representatives of organic architecture.

One of the remarkable events for students and staff of the University became the International art forum “Architectural seasons”, within the frame of which there are regularly held meetings with well-known prominent people of the modern architectural society. In 2015 there took place a presentation of works of Dutch architect Erik van Egeraat and American deconstructivity architect Daniel Libeskind. In 2016 – a conference «Master’s hearings» and a round table on Master’s training of architects in which representatives of profile Committees, the Union of architects and leading architectural organizations of St.-Petersburg took part. The main architect of St.-Petersburg V.A.Grigoriev, a graduate of the architectural faculty LISI of 1983, informed on intention to organize Master’s training of regional architects in SPSUACE.

Students and staff of the University had a chance to listen to the lecture “Transformation of cities, paradigm change” within the International urban science week “Urban Week” in Saint Petersburg. The lecture was read by Tom Aussems – researcher and urban designer from the Netherlands, specializing in projects of historic cities’ transformation.

One more bright event in the social life of the University is the festival of project “Educational bridge” between Saint Petersburg, Moscow, and Boston (USA), including photo exhibitions, lectures, open meetings and discussions.

Certainly, the major component of the international cooperation for high school - training foreign experts. So far the University has prepared about 2 thousand experts for foreign countries. Graduates of our University work in many countries of the world. Diplomas of SPSUACE are admitted by majority of countries on a par with European and American ones. For the last half a century our University has not received any claim concerning level of preparation of experts for foreign countries.

The university accepts foreign citizens on training on all educational programs of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation (on the state education), on individual contracts (contracts) and on the equal basis as the Russian citizens. Full and short-term programs and also the preparatory courses are provided for training foreign citizens. Training is conducted in Russian language.
