Details of the program

  • Duration: 4 years
  • Credit units: 240
  • Entrance examinations: Russian language, geography, mathematics
  • Educational departments: Meteorology and Climatology; Hydrology



The Faculty of Geology and Geography, on the basis of which highly qualified specialists in the field of hydrometeorology are trained, is one of the most versatile faculties of Tomsk State University.

The traditions of the first classical university in Siberia are combined with innovative research and non-standard approaches to learning.

Within the framework of the “Hydrometeorology” direction, two educational programs are implemented: “Land Hydrology” and “Meteorology”, so a student can choose his own learning path .

Training is conducted in Russian. The applicant must have a basic knowledge of geography and mathematics. An interest in studying physics and chemistry is welcome.

Resource support for programs includes a set of laboratories (meteorological laboratory, laboratory of synoptic and aeronautical meteorology, laboratory of numerical methods, hydraulics training laboratory and research laboratory of hydrological and environmental problems) and field practice bases in the Tomsk region, the Altai Republic and Khakassia.
