Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University
St. Petersburg, Russia
Saint Petersburg is the most European of Russian cities. Founded by Peter the Great in 1703 as Russia’s “Window to the West,” it still retains many of the Baroque splendors of the former empire, more bridges than Venice, and a fairytale atmosphere of gold-domed churches, elaborate palaces, and riverside parks. Dostoevsky, Pushkin, Shostakovich, and Lenin all have ties to Saint Petersburg. Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University was founded in 1899 and became one of the major universities of Russia and the former Soviet Union. The University is home to more than 20,000 students and 2,000 professors, lecturers, and instructors.

The academic program is organized by the Russian Language Center at the Preparatory Department for Foreign Students, one mile from the main campus. This department trains students from all over the world who wish to enter higher education at Russian universities and is highly regarded for its excellent teaching of Russian as a foreign language. After participating in an orientation and a 2-day visit to London, study abroad students will enroll in 12-18 credits. All students enroll in a 9-credit language course at the appropriate level. Elective courses in English are also available.
Credit Transfer
For High Point University to recognize the credits you complete abroad, you must earn at least a grade equivalent to a C in the U.S. HPU will not accept credit for courses with grades of C– or below. Grades for all courses earned abroad are recorded on the international transcript. Credits are received by HPU as transfer credits, which means the credit is received but the grade is not. Your HPU grade point average will not be impacted positively or negatively by your study abroad courses.
