SPbSAU is a flagship industry-specific university in the Northwestern Federal District, the international research and education center, one of the agricultural education leaders in Russia. It trains specialists in the fields of agricultural biology, engineering and technology, social sciences, and economics.

Founded in 1904.

The university is located in the pearl of Saint-Petersburg—Pushkin town (Tsarskoye Selo).

Tsarskoye Selo (Pushkin) is a small town with two magnificent palaces, well-wooded parks, and rich history. It is 20 minutes' drive from Saint Petersburg. Russian Imperial House of Romanovs turned the summer residence in the neighborhood of Saint Petersburg into the town where the architectural grandeur combines with cutting-edge technologies, and Lyceum student Pushkin wrote poems about it.

Cultural life of the town is extraordinarily bright and eventful. Depending on the season, you can freely participate in Maslenitsa outdoor celebrations or numerous palace balls and festivals.
