The answer of Vice-Rector for Academic and Methodological Affairs Marina Y. Lavrikova:
International applicants can be admitted to SPbU both to places on a fee-paying (contractual) basis and to places funded by the Russian Government (Scholarship includes tuition fee and academic scholarship 1340 rubles per month in 2013/14 academic year).
All information about the competition for scholarship, organized by the St. Petersburg State University, including a list of required documents as well as deadlines for documents submitting are published on the web-site of SPBU Admission Committee in the part "Admission of foreign citizens".
All information regarding fee-paying basis including lists and forms of admission tests you can find here.
Please, pay attention that all Bachelor and Specialist programs are taught in the Russian language. If you don’t have any background in Russian you can take a preparatory course which lasts 10 months. Upon completion of the course students obtain a graduation certificate in a standard-form. As well, they can take a state examination “Test of Russian as Foreign Language” (TORFL) and obtain a certificate of a correspondent level which is necessary for admission into the University (TORFL-1 for Bachelor programs, TORFL-2 for Master programs).
More detailed information about the foundation course in Russian language and a full list of programs offered you can find here.
