National Research Tomsk State University (TSU) was founded as a research-intensive institution and has for over 130 years been successfully carrying out its original aims of preserving and advancing cultural values, generating and disseminating knowledge and information, and providing elite education through the integration of the educational process, fundamental academic research and innovative approaches.

  • Founded in 1878 as The Imperial Siberian University, TSU became the first higher education institution in the Asian part of Russia and made a decisive contribution to the development of this vast territory.

  • In recognition of its outstanding contribution to the development of academic research, education and culture, TSU has been included into the State Code of Particularly Valuable Objects of Russian cultural heritage by Presidential Decree. In 2006 TSU became a member of the European University Association (EUA).

  • In 2010 TSU won a university competition for the status of ‘National Research University’. In 2010-2011 TSU won tenders for two university-industry collaborative projects in high-tech manufacturing (Government Regulation № 218), for state support of innovative infrastructure development in universities (Regulation № 219) and for two projects aimed at involving leading international scientists (Regulation № 220).

  • TSU has been repeatedly listed in the TOP-500 world’s leading universities according to QS World University Ranking. TSU has been included in the ТОP-500 of Webometrics Ranking of World Universities and came second after Moscow State University (MSU) in the ranking of Russian universities.

  • TSU is among the leaders of the National Ranking of Higher Education Institutions in the ‘National Research University’ category, prepared by Interfax Information Services group and Echo of Moscow radio station, with the support of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, coming second after the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology.

  • TSU is fourth in the ranking of innovative activities of higher education institutions, prepared by the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, after Bauman Moscow State Technical University, MSU and Moscow Institute of Engineering and Physics.


TSU started offering Master’s degree programs much earlier than other Russian universities. Following its interest in international higher education systems TSU was the first to trial Master’s programs. This was successful and in the early 1990s TSU granted its first Master’s diplomas in Biology, Geology, Chemistry, Physics and Radiophysics. A little bit later students of Law and Philosophy also trialed a two-tier system of education.

Nowadays TSU offers about 150 Master’s programs in 42 areas of academic studies and counting.


^ Advantages of TSU Master’s programs

  • Interdisciplinarity
    The area of Master’s program can differ radically from a Bachelor’s program of studies. A Master’s degree program in Philosophy, for instance, can be interesting for graduates with Bachelor’s degrees in technical specialties. It is also quite popular among students with Bachelor’s degrees in Biology and History.

  • Double Diploma
    TSU has been developing dual degree Master’s programs with its partner universities. Education takes place in two universities simultaneously. Today TSU has academic partners in China, France, Belgium and other countries.

  • Mobility
    Today’s Master’s programs provide opportunities for Bachelor’s degree graduates to continue their studies in other universities, not only in Russia, but also in Europe and America. A TSU Master’s diploma is accepted by employers in Russia and abroad.

  • Customized Programs
    Master’s programs are developed based on the requests from specific companies, which then go on to employ the graduates. The number of these kinds of program at TSU increases every year.

  • ^ Individual Plan
    TSU graduates have the opportunity to build their own study scheme, which allows them to choose an individual learning plan which would include all necessary disciplines, research content, work experience placements and internship.


A TSU Master’s degree marks the top level of higher education, and a Master’s degree is itself proof of a graduate’s excellence and high-quality performance.

^ INTERNATIONAL MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAMS

A master’s degree in Russia is the second level of higher professional education.

In Russia, admitted to a Master’s Degree program can be holders of a bachelor’s degree (4 years of study), holders of a specialist’s degree (five years of study) or holders of a Master’s Degree, regardless of a degree previously obtained by them.

International Master’s Degree programs are designed for those with a good command of a foreign language, independent and active individuals, students and young professionals who want to deepen their vocational knowledge, develop skills and acquire work experience abroad.

At Tomsk State University (TSU) International Master’s Degree programs are carried out in cooperation with universities of Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and Taiwan.

International training of Master’s Degree students at TSU is conducted within four international partner programs (Double Degree Programs) for both English and Russian-speaking audience and two programs for English-speaking audience.

The curriculum itself has been rooted in the observed needs of environmental regulators. A study was made of the training needs of Tomsk State Ecological Committee and this formed the initial basis for the design. The degree is thus practice-oriented, aiming to give students practice in addressing the problems for themselves which are likely to be met by environmental managers. It is student-centred, with plenty of opportunity for students to work by themselves, with others and with their tutors to learn actually how to go about managing the environment, not merely to understand what needs to be done. It draws heavily on international experience.

Although the degree was designed with the needs of environmental regulators in mind, it is suitable for a wider range of students than this. It is suitable for environmental regulators, for managers in the environmental departments of firms, for people who work in the media or in NGOs or in environmental education, as well as for full-time graduate students.

The complete portfolio of courses should be studied to cover what were identified as the main needs of environmental managers. Some of the courses however are suitable for use by those who do not wish to study the whole degree. In particular, the «Introduction to Environmental Science» can stand by itself. The course in «Social Science Research Methods» is suitable for all who wish to learn how to conduct or commission such research, qualitative as much as quantitative. «Managing in Organisations» is suitable for all managers or students of management. The course on «Environmental Management and the Firm» will be useful for people in firms and their regulators, even if they do not wish to study the other courses. Thus for those who do not wish to study the whole degree, certificates will be issued for the successful completion of each course.
