Southwest State University in Kursk welcomed the first students in 1964. At that time it was called Kursk Polytechnic Institute. Since that time things have been developing by leaps and bounds. Now we have five faculties with more than 27,000 students, almost 20% of whom are from abroad, and more than 4,000 employees. Several international studies document that we conduct world-class research and are one of the top fifty young universities in the world.
Over the years, Southwest State University has interwoven many lives. The roughly five years which a student invests in a university education will lay the groundwork for the rest of his or her life.
