Why study at
Novosibirsk State University
NSU is the real science
Novosibirsk state university is located in the world-famous scientific center – Akademgorodok. So education is carried out in close connection with the world-class scientific achievements.
Capital of Siberia without capital's living costs
According to the QS experts, Novosibirsk State University is the second best university in Russia. But the costs of studying and costs of living here are substantially lower here than in Moscow or St.Petersburg.
Do not waste life in traffic jams
Akademgorodok is located 30 kilometers away from Novosibirsk. This means no disadvantages of the big city, like noise or smog, but all the benefits: Everything is within walking distance to our compact campus
When nature is closer than you think
"It's like in the woods!" – that's what people say when they come to Akademgorodok for the first time. See the wild ducks living in the local pond; or the squirrels that are so used to living next to people that they do not run away.
Especially for adventurers
Akademgorodok's surroundings are the best sites for those who cannot imagine their life without mountain biking, skiing and hiking. And the vast expanse of the Ob sea attracts windsurfers in summer, and snow-kiterss in winter.
