Chilean Enrollees Find Out How to Enroll at TPU

An online presentation of Tomsk Polytechnic University has been held at the venue of the Russian House (an official representative office of the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States Affairs, Compatriots Living Abroad, and International Humanitarian Cooperation) in Santiago, the capital of Chili. Chilean enrollees, who are intending to study in Russia, joined the meeting.

“Students of Chilean universities and schools joined the meeting. They are participating in the selection for quotas to study in Russia. None of them had known anything about Tomsk or our university.

They asked questions about fields of study at TPU, pre-university courses, the university campus. Of course, there were a lot of questions about our city, climate patterns. We realize that many enrollees from Latin America are afraid of our winters, but in these cases, I usually say that cold winters are unnoticed due to warmth and amiability of Tomsk citizens,” says Evgeniya Sherina, Head of the Division for Russian Language of the TPU School of Core Engineering Education, who met with the Chilean enrollees online.

The TPU master’s degree student Tomas De La Fuente Marques also joined the meeting. He told in Spanish, a mother tongue for the enrollees from Latin America about his life in Tomsk and gave the participants advice and recommendations for admission.

“We see a growing interest of Latin American students to TPU in this year. At the moment, students from Ecuador, Peru, Columbia and Venezuela are studying in the pre-university courses. They are preparing for both enrollment in bachelor’s degree programs and master’s degree, PhD programs of our university,” Evgeniya Sherina adds.

It must be noted that teachers of the TPU Division for Russian Language regularly give online classes in Russian for international students, interested in Russian culture and willing to study in Russia. The next series of Russian online classes will be held in December. Learn more about the project on the website.
