SPbU has simplified the order of filing documents for foreign applicants
Foreign applicants will be easier to enter SPbU this year. The oldest University of the country will provide the most comfortable conditions for foreigners to submit documents.
First of all there is a possibility to file documents in digital form using the official site of SPbU Admissions Committee. Moreover, the order of submitting documents using the personal account will be supplied in stages.
