Southwest State University
The Southwest State University is located in Kursk, Central Russia. It is housed in several buildings in different city locations. The main campus is in 50 Let Oktyabrya Street (see map) The university is the city’s biggest educational institution, with around 11 000 students receiving educations within the 100 main areas of engineering, science, social sciences and humanities.
We focus on the students
In all aspects – academic, environmental and personal – the staff at SWSU Campus takes the students’ needs into consideration.
There is, however, always room for improvement, and we are always interested in your opinion. In the spring of 2011, the Executive Board of the University of Southern Denmark thus launched a project called “De studerende i centrum” (Focus on the students) with five working groups to focus on ensuring and improving an inspirational learning environment in a motivating study environment with first class service, as perceived by the students. For example, Head of Campus Kolding, Mrs Jette Damsted Olsen, is participating in the working group that focuses on improving the physical, social and virtual study environment, and two other employees at campus Kolding have also joined the working groups.
Below you will find information on our current measures to ensure that we are always focusing on the students. Please let us know, if you have any ideas for further improvements.
Our staff will assist you in all matters
The staff at Faculty Dean’s Offices (сделать ссылку) is divided into study lines and the various secretaries are therefore specialized in the rules and regulations of your specific study program. They may assist you in all practical matters, and they know each of their students personally. Furthermore, Faculty Dean’s Offices offer student counseling, e.g. admission, registration, change of program, leave of absence, etc.

SWSU Student Council is a non-political student organization for all students at the Southwest University. SC is your voice at SWSU campus, as the organization is in close dialogue with the campus management.
SC plays an important role in the social life at SWSU, for example through festivals, outings, parties and other University events.
When you enrol at SWSU, you are automatically a member of SC and thereby have the possibility of influencing the social life on campus.
SC has a close cooperation with Café on SWSU main campus territory.
