There isn't nuclear engineering in bachelor level in Finland, and as I was aiming to work in nuclear industry, Nuclear Engineering Summer School in Saint Petersburg was easy choice for me. In lectures I got lots of theoretical knowledge about nuclear physics and reactors to support my practical knowledge. Lectures weren’t too formal and they had a great atmosphere, it was easy to ask more from professors and they were willing to answer. Volunteers from university also did great job guiding and helping us, who mostly didn’t know the Russian language. Our group with multiple nationalities had great time sightseeing Saint Petersburg together. I made new friends and almost learned Cyrillic letters too!

Summer school in Russia was something unexpected I did for my summer. I am amazed at the degree of immenseness into the local culture the St Petersburg Polytechnic University offers to its international students, with tours to the more popular places in the cities and friendly tutors who are happy to help. St Petersburg is a cultural treasure trove that rivals any major city around the world, and I spent much of my extended stay exploring its museums and walking along the wide boulevards. I highly recommend the Summer programme at St Petersburg for individuals who want to experience something different for their Summer holidays.

I attended summer school with my classmates back in July 2016 and it was an unforgettable experience! I truly enjoyed myself, from touring the city of St. Petersburg, soaking in the sights, admiring the palaces, gawking at the views, even the lessons itself were amazing thanks to the professor. I will definitely recommend this summer school programme to my friends. Thank you SPbPU for this opportunity!

Performing an academic exchange in Russia was not in my closest plans, however, when this opportunity came up I did not think twice. It was an amazing experience, since from the environment, experience in the university, the lectures, staff, until the cultural activities that the university gave us and also the friends we made during this period. I recommend it to everyone, the academic and cultural knowledge are highly rewarding, and St. Petersburg is a sensational and amazing city, full of histories that delight our eyes.
