Going to summer school is not only about the in-class experience. I am so glad I decided to go to summer school and I am very grateful to every single one who made my experience at SPbPU this summer so extremely awesome. Students of all levels should be able to attend the “Doing Business in Russia” program, however, also further advanced students will get a great and broad insight into the Russian market and economy from Russian professionals and their personal experiences. I will long look back at the memories I created there with a smile on my face and definitely recommend everybody to take the chance and experience the same!

I think it is a precious and unforgettable experience to study in the summer school of SPbPU. The tutors and local students are nice, helpful and professional. I have learnt a lot from them. Moreover, there were many different visits and activities for us to let us know more about Russian culture. I have much fun in Russia and miss the days in the summer school.

My experience in the course was amazing and unforgettable. The professors are great professionals. The classes were amusing and dynamic. The coordinators were always there helping. The entire course was a lot more vivid in such a city as Saint Petersburg. Also my classmates were all great people from all over the world. With them, it was more enjoyable touring the city. I would recommend this summer school to everyone!

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”.
