Students Feedback
  • "ISP is the most entertaining while experiencing different things that are not in our major program stream. The length and depth of courses, the ISP period before beginning a new term, the amount of work loads, and so on are all in good shape."
  • "Firstly, I really admire the way Skoltech delivers every single course. I was planning to take an offline course at first but due to health reasons, I had to travel home and follow the online courses. Although, I enjoyed these courses. Every instructor is great in delivering their courses of expertise. It will be really great to have more courses taught by Prof. Maxim Zhuk and learn from their experience. I am thankful to Skoltech to provide such courses taught by such great instructors. Sincerely!"
  • "ISP was a really cool event in my life. Thanks to all the instructors!"
  • "While I had expected that the course of Gregory Falkovich would be great in terms of the content, professionalism of Prof. Falkovich, and his teaching approach (and it absolutely was!), I had a real pleasure to take Yerassyl's course on Quantum Information. I really loved his commitment, high level of preparation, friendly and inspiring athmosphere in the lessons and all this beautiful mathematics!"
  • "In my heart is the course on Based Movies by the Petroleum guys 🤩❤️ It really made my ISP! Thank you guys for your commitment, professionalism, and the brand new perception of movies, which I now have due to you. And I had such a relaxation in your lessons after Term 2, wonderful:)."
  • "In general I was pretty satisfied by the ISP period. Eq and negotiation games course was very exciting and definitely very useful. Chess strategies course had its own pros and cons and some unusual (at least for me) curriculum ideas, but still was interesting."
