Advanced technology and science are changing the way healthcare professionals work. The pandemic has also affected their work. The requirements for the high-quality training of future specialists remain unchanged. St Petersburg University specialist’s programmes ‘General Medicine’ and ‘Dental Medicine’ have been developed and implemented in accordance with international standards, traditions and modern approaches to higher medical education. Additionally, these areas are in demand among international applicants.

International applicants have a month left to submit all the necessary documents in order to participate in the competition for the government-funded places at St Petersburg University.

The results of the 2021 admission campaign have once again confirmed the status of St Petersburg University as the most popular university in Russia among international applicants: about 21,000 applications were received. Management is one of the most popular fields of study among applicants from other countries.
