    Yana Baitserova (Russia)
    3nd year student of TISP

    The most important thing that has changed for me is my perspectives and my view on the future. I understand more clearly what I would like to do in the future in scientific and professional terms.

    Professors from Belgium, the Netherlands, the United States, and the United Kingdom are invited to the TISP program. This is a great opportunity to get an international education in Tomsk.
    Martin Ngambi (Cameroon)
    3nd year student of TISP

    What I like most about the TISP program is the relationship that develops between professors and students. They help us identify our research interests. We jointly solve scientific cases, conduct research, and implement projects.

    I would recommend TISP to ambitious people who are not afraid to learn. Studying on the program allows us first to study different areas in the field of natural sciences, and then choose our own training track. This makes the program unique!
    Loskutova Olga (Russia)
    2st year student of TISP

    I chose TISP because I saw opportunities that are not available in other faculties. I thought we'd be doing research, doing serious research. And so it turned out. Already during the first year, we wrote scientific articles! Without our own discoveries for now, but everything is still ahead.

    I would advise anyone who wants to become a scientist to go to TISP. There are two reasons for this. First, you will be given a basic knowledge of all natural sciences. Secondly, this program provides an opportunity to learn from the world's best specialists already in the first year.
