The studies will go both on campus and online at the start of a new academic year. Applications are open until 30 August, 2021.
Of the four subjects run by PSU, applicants may choose only one. The training will take place at the faculties of Biology, Geography, History and Political Science, Economics, and Law. The program is designed for 300 participants of 10-11 grade. Two training formats are available: an in-depth program, or a free listener.
“Program participants will be able to act like real students. The in-depth training format supposes weekly classes, laboratory research, workshops, project management, participation in contests, professional tests and internships, as well as business contacts and an outreach session “Holidays with PSU”,says Olga Maksyutenko, Head of the Applicants and Alumni Department, PSU.
Free listeners will mostly use the online format, solving complex problems, preparing for exams, attending open lectures and workshops.
