In recent years there has been an upward trend in a number of foreign students who are accepted to State-funded places. There are 37 State-funded students and 29 fee-paying students in IPNT. It is worth mentioning that during the last several years the vast majority of international students were citizens of China. Nowadays, people from various countries go on to attend our university. Among them are citizens of CIS countries (15 persons), Vietnamese citizens (10 people) as well as representatives from Latin America and Africa. On a separate point, we would like to mention that we also have students from Syria, Iran, and Iraq. 27 foreign students again started the new academic year in 2016-2017, meanwhile, five of them enrolled in the magistracy.
Statistics on the preferences of our students for selection of the field of study shows that most of the fee-paying students choose "Infocommunication technologies ...", "Electronics and nanoelectronics," Radio Engineering ", and also" Physics ", and in the latter case they prefer the departments of " Biophysics "and" Experimental Nuclear Physics "
