WHAT IS INDEPENDENT STUDY PERIOD (ISP)?
Independent Study Period serves Skoltech’s mission to raise the next generation of science, technology and innovation leaders, offering students a world of opportunities beyond their main educational field, making their learning truly interdisciplinary and enhancing a sense of Skoltech community.
ISP encourages all members of the Skoltech community (students, faculty, staff, visiting faculty/staff/experts, etc.) to create and participate in a wide variety of short non-credit courses and projects aimed at sharing an expertise or interest with others, including ones not necessarily related to their day-to-day Skoltech roles.
ISP is compulsory activity for MSc-1 students.
