Skoltech Telegram Open
Open doors in a Telegram chat
Tuesday, February 9th /
8 pm (GMT+3) /
You have probably heard about Telegram (it's popular these days, right?). Well, on February 9th we invite you to join our online Open doors in Telegram chat. Skoltech international students will talk about their admission and learning experience, scientific work, professors, laboratories, and the atmosphere of Skoltech. And then, together with representatives of the admission committee, we will answer your questions.

We will invite everyone who registers to a private telegram chat, where current international students will record live videos with honest answers to your questions. You can ask anything about programs, professors, areas of research, admission and selection process. The event will be held in English.

Registration is required. You will receive the link to the private telegram chat 2 hours prior to the event. Also, what a great reason to check out the much-talked about app, huh? :) If you don't have it, install right now:

Hi, I am a first-year master's student in Space & Engineering Systems at Skoltech where I'm starting my thesis on a Space Weather topic. Before that, I got my bachelor's degree from the University of Pisa in Aerospace Engineering. As you can imagine, I am curious about outer space, spacecraft, and aircraft, but in my free time, I also like cycling and, most of all, doing hula-hoop.
