North and Arctic Institute to admit first students in 2020
The future institute will offer its main programs of study at Siberian Federal University in four areas: new industrial technologies and logistics; North and Arctic resource studies; North and Arctic regional studies; and peoples of the North and Siberia. Classes are scheduled to start in September 2020, according to Deputy Governor of the Krasnoyarsk Territory Anatoly Tsykalov.
Tsykalov also recalled that the decision to establish the North and Arctic Institute at Siberian Federal University was made last year by Governor Alexander Uss. "This project is very important for the Krasnoyarsk Territory and Siberian Federal University," he said. "Our goal is to launch classes at the new institute in September 2020."
According to the plans, the institute will be able to admit at least 300 students for bachelor's and specialist's courses, almost 100 students for the master's course and about 10 people for postgraduate studies using money from the budget. Several subjects will be taught in foreign languages. In addition, specialized departments will be established in the northern municipalities of Tura, Dudinka, Igarka, Turukhansk and Norilsk.
