The Preparatory Faculty for Foreign Specialists

Volgograd State Technical University (VSTU) was founded in 1930. Since 1962 the University has been training highly qualified specialists for many European, Asian, African, Middle-East and Latin American countries. About 1500 graduates of the University with Certified Specialist diplomas, Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and PhD. degrees are currently working in more than 70 countries.

In 1973 the Preparatory Faculty for Foreign Students was founded at the University. It provides foreign students wishing to get higher education in Russia (in Engineering, in Economic, or in Humanities) with preparation of high quality.

Students of the Preparatory Faculty take the following courses with regards to their major:

-    Engineering major: Russian language, Physics, Mathematics, Chemistry, Information Science, Technical Drawing, History;

  • Economics major: Russian language, Physics, Mathematics, Information Science, History, Economics, Geography;
  • Humanities major: Russian language, Literature, Culture Science, History, Geography.

The Faculty has a hostel and a research library at its disposal.

Graduates of the Faculty who have passed their final exams successfully can continue their education at Volgograd State Technical University or in other higher education institutions of Russian Federation.

There are 7 faculties in the University:

  • Electronics and Computer Science
  • Chemical Engineering;
  • Technology of Structural Materials;
  • Machine-Building;
  • Auto-Tractor;
  • Economics and Management;
  • Automobile Transport.

After the Preparatory Faculty students can enroll in Bachelor of Science programs of their choice (duration of a program is 4 years), and on completion of the course they can continue their education either in the Master's programs (2 years long), or in the Certified Specialist's programs (a year or one and a half years long). The University offers training in the following fields of study:
