Siberian Federal University

Introduction

One can hardly find a place in Russia with such an impressive number of implemented national projects as in the Krasnoyarsk Territory. Our most focused “development points” have been determined in industry, power engineering and energy, research and education. Siberian Federal University, as a response to regional developmental challenges, was established in 2006 to train highly qualified specialists capable of working in any region of our country, including severe conditions of the Northern areas.

Studying science at the advanced level gives students the ability of an excellent preparation for a future research to earn a PhD SibFU degree.

Academic year begins on October 1st The Master’s degree holder can continue studying to earn a PhD SibFU degree.

Admissions

International students can be admitted either via personal contact or under exchange agreements with partner universities. To establish an individual contact:

Step 1: Choose a Program

Please, refer to the section "Education for International Students" (see Bachelor’s Programs, Master’s Programs, PhD's Programs,Russian Language Preparation Programs) and the web pages of a university schools to find out the information about the institute study programmes available for international students, their tuition cost and the cost of accomodation (in many cases, the university may not be able to provide you with housing).

Having found a degree programme/course that satisfies you please take Step 2 of this instruction.

If you cannot find necessary information or you need more information about the programme/course of your choice please address your queries to the Department of International Educational Programs.

Step 2: Submit Application Form

FILL IN ONLINE APPLICATION FORM

To your application form you should attach a copy of EVERY PAGE (including empty pages) of your international passport. The passport should be valid for at least 18 months after the prospective starting date of your studies. It is your responsibility to find out if your request and documents have been received by the institute and are eligible for processing.

Step 3: Agreement, Payment, Invitation Letter and Visa

After receiving your application form the International Department will send you the Learning Agreement with terms and conditions. Please, sign it and email its scanned copy back to the International Department at ovkuznetsova@sfu-kras.ru.

On the basis of your signed Contract the Financial office will bill you for the cost of your tuition (for a semester in case you take a year-long course/programme). After receiving the confirmation of payment the department will apply for an invitation letter for you.

The Invitation Letter necessary for you to receive the Russian visa will be issued by the Krasnoyarsk Visa and Immigration Office within 30-45 days (official processing time). (The Visa and Migration office charges the University for 500RUR for issuing an invitation letter. This sum should be refunded to the International Department upon arrival to the University.) You will receive the notification that the document is ready from the International Department, Siberian Federal University, and may either collect it in person or appoint somebody with your Power of Attorney to collect it for you. In this case, they will be asked to bring the Power of Attorney Letter (it may be faxed or scanned) certifying that they may act on your behalf. Otherwise, you may prefer to receive it by express mail in which case it is your responsibility to pay the postage fees.

Meanwhile, find out from your nearest Russian Embassy what documents you need to supply with your visa application. It is recommended that you start preparing your documents well in advance as it may be a lengthy process. Depending upon the country in which you live travel arrangements can take several months. It is important that you receive your visa at the Embassy closest to the place where you permanently live.

Research in multidimensional complex analysis at Siberian Federal University is about several topics. The overarching theme is the interaction between complex analysis and other areas of mathematics and physics. For example, methods and techniques of functional analysis are applied to the study of PDEs in domains of complex space. Algebraic geometry plays an important role in the study of distribution of complex algebraic and analytic sets and its applications in physics. Alternatively, analytic methods are used in the theory of algebraic and hypergeometric functions, in the description of the structure of discriminantal sets. Other examples include the study of multidimensional difference equations, analytic continuation of functions and sets. Programme Leader Professor Tsikh worked at the universities of Stockholm, Bordeaux, Berlin, Calabria (Italy), Armidel (Australia), Max Planck Institute in Bonn, Institut Mittag-Leffler in Stockholm. Research interests: complex analysis, algebraic geometry, tropical geometry, signal processing, math- ematical physics (superstring theory, thermodynamics) Entry requirements: Master’s degree (or equivalent) in Mathematics, Physics, or Computer Science; desired qualifications: good knowledge of mathematical analysis; an adequate level of English proficiency (certificate or other document) Apply to The Centre for International Education and Certified Testing for a certificate if you do not have it, the Russian language preparatory course is available.
