As a country of the size of a continent, the Russian Federation offers many scenic and cultural as well as social, economic and political contrasts. The University of Göttingen, as part of the Global Exchange Programme, has a partnership with Saint Petersburg State University, the oldest university in Russia. This partnership offers you the opportunity to personally get to know the long academic tradition of this extremely diverse country as well as its people and their everyday life.
Applications for a study abroad programme at St. Petersburg University are currently not possible.
