Phys. Ed at University: Endless Opportunities

Many people believe that physical education as a subject in schools and universities is pointless. For some people, it's just about inexperienced coaches who don't know the rules of the game, old sports equipment and wasted time that could have been spent studying! But now I want to tell you that at ITMO, this is all in the past.

Distance Learning during a Pandemic

As for today, COVID-19 is the most discussed topic in the world. The spread of Coronavirus has impacted the format of the educational process for most universities and our university, ITMO, is no exception. ITMO has moved to distance learning, providing online classwork. That is why I want to share with you my distance learning experience.

From High School Graduation to Diploma: Expectations vs Reality

It is always challenging to find yourself and stand up for your ambitions. The last year of school is an enormously significant period when choices surround you all the time. Moreover, when it comes to picking a university, you have no other way but to rely on someone’s words because of your own lack of experience. There are many articles which can clearly illustrate students' lives and their opinions, but sometimes it is better to compare two subjects in order to get the desired result. That is why I conducted a survey and gathered information about the most crucial aspects of students' current life which they imagined differently.

What stereotypes do you know about Russia?

This is almost the first question I ask my new foreign friends after some classic small talk. As a buddy, I always meet a lot of foreigners. And it’s extremely interesting to know what people think about our country from the other side of the world.

Recipe for Motivation

The hardest thing for students all over the world is always passing exams. Everybody hates books, notes, projects and reviews, university seems to be a torture. We all say "I need motivation"! Let’s get closer to the point and find the best recipe now.

ITMO… It’s More Than a University.

But what does that really mean? What are we here at ITMO trying to do? What does it mean to be more than just a university?

To borrow Shakespeare’s words, "That IS the question."

How ITMO Celebrates the First Day of the New Academic Year

On September 1, the celebration of first-year students ITMO.GO took place at Aleksandrovsky Park in front of Baltic House. This means that all enrolled applicants can now proudly call themselves students. Of course, for everyone this is a new and important stage of life, because getting a higher education determines not only your future professional skills, but also forms ideas about many things not related to future work. In addition, do not forget about rest and entertainment. And ITMO.GO confirms these words.
