The Tomsk International Science Program offers you the opportunity to explore the natural sciences and to build a unique academic profile

Are you interested in the natural sciences and want to look beyond the boundaries of a single discipline? Or do you want to focus on one discipline and become an expert in that specific field? The Tomsk International Science Program offers you the opportunity to explore the natural sciences and to build a unique academic profile based on your personal interests and ambitions. Every semester, your personal academic advisor guides you in selecting courses from fields as diverse as biology, chemistry, mathematics, physics, neuroscience and various interdisciplinary fields such as biomedical engineering and entrepreneurship. You can focus on a single discipline, or you can combine multiple disciplines in a single degree.

The Core

The core will ensure that you obtain essential knowledge before you start building your own curriculum.

Since all introductory courses are prerequisites for more advanced courses, you are guaranteed that your peers have an equal knowledge base when you start selecting more advanced courses.


The mandatory core courses, skills and project offer an introduction to:

·       Biology

·       Chemistry

·       Liberal Arts & Sciences

·       Physics

·       Research methods

·       PBL


Academic year

An academic year at the TISP is split into two semesters. Each semester consists of two periods of eight weeks, followed by a four-week project period. During the project period, you incorporate the knowledge and skills you have acquired over the previous sixteen weeks into a single research project.



Modules at the TISP are taught at four levels of increasing complexity:

·       1000 level Introductory

·       2000 level Intermediate: might have course prerequisites, such as having completed an introductory course

·       3000 - 4000 levels Advanced: will have course prerequisites, such as having completed one or more intermediate course

To ensure in-depth knowledge, the amount of 1000 level courses you can choose is limited, and a substantial amount of 4000-level courses are required. 


At the TISP, we use a diverse range of assessment methods: exams, papers, peer review, presentations or lab reports.

Each course will have at least two ways of assessment to ensure an adequate review of your obtained knowledge.
