International education

The Uni­ver­si­ty has been edu­cat­ing for­eign stu­dents since 1953. More than 3,000 for­eign spe­cial­ists from 47 coun­tries have received their pro­fes­sion­al train­ing in the SPbF­TU. Many of them occu­py lead­ing posi­tions in the for­est branch enter­pris­es, sci­en­tif­ic and edu­ca­tion­al insti­tu­tions of for­est com­plex in their coun­tries now. At present, the Saint Peters­burg State For­est Tech­ni­cal Uni­ver­si­ty is train­ing more than 500 for­eign stu­dents from 42 coun­tries of CIS, Baltic states, Asia, Europe and Amer­i­c­as. There are stu­dents who enter the uni­ver­si­ty on the com­mon ground as well as those whose edu­ca­tion is finan­cial­ly sup­port­ed by their coun­tries through inter-gov­ern­men­tal pro­grams. These are stu­dents of full and part time edu­ca­tion, post-grad­u­ates (MSc and PhD stu­dents), trainees, stu­dents of paid cours­es of Russ­ian lan­guage and adap­tive prepa­ra­tion cours­es. The inter­na­tion­al activ­i­ties are imple­ment­ed and coor­di­nat­ed by the Inter­na­tion­al Depart­ment (ID) and Inter­na­tion­al Cen­ter of Forestry and For­est Indus­try (ICFFI).

The Uni­ver­si­ty has 35 bilat­er­al coop­er­a­tion agree­ments with for­eign part­ners – uni­ver­si­ties, sci­en­tif­ic research insti­tu­tions, and com­pa­nies. In the SPbF­TU, much atten­tion is giv­en to devel­op­ment of aca­d­e­m­ic mobil­i­ty, which is real­ized in sev­er­al direc­tions: stu­dent mobil­i­ty, fac­ul­ty mobil­i­ty, and admin­is­tra­tive mobil­i­ty. There are dif­fer­ent forms of such mobil­i­ty: bilat­er­al short-term and long-term stu­dent exchange pro­grams, train­ing cours­es for for­eign stu­dents, lec­tures of invit­ed for­eign sci­en­tists in the SPbF­TU, joint sem­i­nars of for­eign and Russ­ian sci­en­tists and pro­fes­sors, lec­tures of Russ­ian sci­en­tists in for­eign uni­ver­si­ties, schools for fac­ul­ty mem­bers involv­ing lead­ing Russ­ian and for­eign spe­cial­ists in ped­a­gogy and sci­ences, devel­op­ment of dou­ble-diplo­ma schemes for bach­e­lors in dif­fer­ent fields, MSc pro­gram of Cross-Bor­der Uni­ver­si­ty (CBU), MSc pro­gram on for­est pol­i­cy and eco­nom­ics (FORPEC), MSc pro­grams EUROFORESTER and MScEF, sum­mer and win­ter schools orga­nized for for­eign spe­cial­ists, stu­dents and fac­ul­ty mem­bers of for­est uni­ver­si­ties and schools, and also for for­eign cit­i­zens who study Russ­ian language.
