The students were greeted by Prof. Du Fei, Deputy Director of the JU Institute of Physical Education and Dr. Evgenia Sherina, Head of the TPU Department of Russian Language. The students were interested in the life in Tomsk and possible difficulties in learning the Russian language. They also met their teachers from TPU.

“This year, the difficult epidemiological situation made us conduct the meeting with freshmen online. The students found out more about TPU, met their teachers, and asked questions about student life in Tomsk”,

Evgenia Sherina says.

104 second-year students have been already enrolled in the joint program. This year, the Institute of Physical Education has accepted 79 students. In three years, they will continue their training at TPU.


The cooperation between Tomsk Polytechnic University and Jilin University was launched15 years ago. Every year, TPU sends its Russian language teachers to Jilin University to prepare students for further training in Russian. In the 2020-2021 academic year, all classes are conducted online, including the Chinese national educational platforms.
