Saint Petersburg University

Russia (Europe)

With a history dating back to 1724, Saint Petersburg University is the oldest institution of higher education in Russia. Today, SPbU successfully combines tradition and innovation, being one of the leading international centers of education, science and culture. As a dynamic institution, it designs multidisciplinary academic programs that combine fundamental theoretical problems with practical application. The achievements of the University professors and graduates have shaped the history of both international and Russian science and technology.

The University maintains strong partnerships with 530 universities in 100 countries worldwide. Last year, as a part of a productive partnership with Tsinghua University, SPbU launched online courses on the international platform XuetangX and has shown its full support to the newest Global MOOC Alliance initiative. Being grateful for the opportunity to become the founding member of the Alliance, SPbU is willing to establish broader connections and exchange experience with partner universities and organizations in the sphere of e-learning.
