PSU campus

The campus of the educational institution is located in University Park. This opens up all the delights of life in a big city for students: a rich infrastructure, a large selection of entertainment, convenient transport, as well as more opportunities for internships or part-time jobs. However, for some students, such an abundance of opportunities can be distracting. The educational institution has its own library. Here, students do their homework or just have a good time reading an interesting book. The exchange of intercultural experience occupies a special place in training at PSU. The educational institution regularly invites foreign students to participate in exchange programs and organizes various joint events.
