In 2015, I finally got the opportunity to study in Russia. I was very pleased by the organization and support of the Saint Petersburg Polytech University. This summer school offers many study programs to suit everyone’s needs. I was able to improve my practical skills in design class, while learning Russian in the language class. The great leisure program gave me an unforgettable experience about Russian culture. I enjoyed every moment of my stay in Russia, also thanks to the international mix of students. From Austria with love!
Recently I finished the Summer School at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University. Here I had a course “Applied Tools of the Project Development” under the conduction of Professors Olga Kolosova, Gennady Kovalenko and Olga Sosidko. I chose this course because its content is tightly related with my topic of Master’s thesis and I wanted to learn more about project risks and how to manage them. During the course Professors introduced us with risks, gave the main idea of risk management and practical skills on a few computer programs commonly used for project risks. Moreover, we had interesting excursions to the local companies, such as “Elma” and “St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce and Industry”, where we knew about project realization based on real examples of Heads of organizations. It was very useful knowledge and the best way to study the subjects on course. In addition, every day I had improved my English communication skills and gained a lot of new friends from all over the world. That’s really cool!J
The last but not the least, the cultural program and events that we had within this Summer School was great and full of fun in one of the most beautiful city of the world – St. Petersburg. Despite its unpredictable weather with quite often drizzles, we enjoyed the fascinating city architecture, historical buildings, museums, especially the world’s famous Hermitage, a lot of theatres, and cathedrals and were totally amazed by the bridges’ drawing while our late walks at white nights.
At the end, I would like to say for future students, who are planning to take part at the next Summer School at Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University that “it is a unique opportunity to broaden your vision, enrich your culture, grow professionally and obtain all these unforgettable new experiences in a wonderful city called St. Petersburg”.
This summer in Saint Petersburg has been quite a life-changing experience. I have always loved everything related to space programs and space communications, and this course has shown me a really interesting approach to this field. Above all, I loved the internationality of the course, which has allowed me to make very useful acquaintances.
The Summer School gave me a great insight into the field of ERP Systems and SAP. I liked the small classes and cozy learning atmosphere. Moreover, I benefitted a lot from the intercultural atmosphere by communicating with the other international students attending the summer school program. A lot of great events and trips were planned by the university, so that we could experience St. Petersburg to the fullest. St Petersburg is a great and beautiful city with a lot of sights, restaurants, cafes and bars to visit. It's got an amazing culture and I will never regret my decision to have participated in the SPbPU Summer School Program. I can definitely recommend it!
IM was a course that I was looking long time to learn, and I did it in Russia. I really enjoyed the classes, not only the one that I focused at the beginning... I enjoyed all of them, particularly the class of Russian Civilization and its Architecture, where after a few trips to Saint Petersburg, I could understand the meaning and have more information about some buildings that I saw daily before.
