MAIN PEDAGOGICAL INSTITUTE is an institution of higher education for training teachers for secondary schools and for state and private institutions of higher education. The institute dates back to the Teachers' Seminary established in 1786 and transformed into the Pedagogical Institute in 1804. The Pedagogical Institute was renamed the Main Pedagogical Institute in 1816. The training lasts six years. The general course takes two years. Specialization in one of the departments lasts for three years. The institute consists of the following departments: the Department of Philosophy and Law, the Department of Physics and Mathematics, the Department of History and Philology. The last year is devoted to teacher training. Advanced training courses in science for the officials and the Noble Boarding School also were part of the Main Pedagogical Institute. The Main Pedagogical Institute was transformed into St. Petersburg University in 1819. The institute was re-established in 1828 as a boarding school. It was abolished in 1859 and the students were moved into the University. The Main Pedagogical Institute was housed in the former Teachers' Seminary at 15 Sixth Line of Vasilievsky Island. It is housed in the building of Twelve Collegiums since 1837.
