Leningrad University is a large research institution in the Soviet Union. Admission is based primarily on entrance examination scores, and there is a three-to-one ratio of freshman applications to available spaces within the institution's 16 departments (faculties). University professors have as their goal training students in methods of thinking and preparing them for future independent study. Special integrated courses of varying lengths are offered to students from other universities in Hungary, Yugoslavia, and East Germany. Main trends in the perestroika of higher education in the Soviet Union emphasize the conjoining of science and the humanities.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition is a semiannual refereed journal providing current research on the first college year and other significant student transitions. The primary purpose of the Journal is to disseminate empirical research findings on student transition issues that inform practice in all sectors of postsecondary education, such as explorations into the academic, personal, and social experiences (including outcomes related to success, learning, and development) of students at a range of transition points throughout the college years; transition issues unique to specific populations (e.g., non-traditional, traditional, historically underrepresented students, transfer students, commuters, part-time students); and explorations of faculty development, curriculum, and pedagogical innovations connected to college transitions.
