Support for International Students

Dear international applicants,

Thank you for your interest in attending Saint Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering.

Saint Petersburg State University of Architecture and Civil Engineering (SPbGASU), founded in 1832 by order of Emperor Nicholas I as an educational institution for training civil engineers, is one of the major education and science centers in Northwest Russia for complex training of specialists in civil engineering, architecture, transport, and environmental engineering. Graduates of SPbGASU created renowned masterpieces of architecture, got famous for their daring engineering solutions, and, to a large extent, outlined the very image of St. Petersburg. Our teachers and alumni have always contributed and keep making major contributions to the construction and restoration of buildings in St. Petersburg and other cities in Russia and worldwide.

Saint Petersburg is deservedly considered one of the most beautiful cities in the world, a city of rich cultural and historical heritage. Every year, millions of tourists from all over the globe come to see and admire our city, its architecture and famous museums. It is no surprise that in 2018, St. Petersburg got its third “tourist Oscar,” a prestigious international award, having surpassed in various nominations such cities as Amsterdam, Athens, Barcelona, Paris, London, Vienna, Florence, and Venice. Our students get a unique chance to spend in St. Petersburg not just a few days, but several years, study here and live in the historical center of the city, turn into true Petersburgers and even plunge into St. Petersburg mysteries!

International students have studied at SPbGASU since 1946; no restrictions in areas of study or specializations have ever been imposed. About 10% of our students are citizens of more than 60 countries of Europe, Asia, Africa, and America. They study together with domestic students, reside in the same dormitory and spend their free time together with Russian fellow students. We are always happy to help international students to adapt to the new environment and manage their learning. For those who are not ready to start studying in Russian along with other students right away, the Preparatory Department for International Students is available, where our highly professional instructors will teach you the Russian language and help in mastering other basic disciplines.

SPbGASU offers prestigious and high-demand education, and the absolute majority of our graduates find interesting jobs while still a student or shortly after graduation. The years of studying at our university and living in our magnificent city will be the most rewarding, interesting, and most unforgettable time in your life! Welcome to Russia, to Saint Petersburg, and to SPbGASU!
