Avetis Grigoryan, Uzbekistan. The second-year student at the Faculty of Foreign Languages of the Institute of Pedagogy, majoring in English and History

I entered BelSU on my acquaintances' recommendations, and I chose this faculty because I have a good command of English. It trains future teachers, translators and interpreters. We started studying major subjects in the first semester. We have professional and friendly teachers. As to technical facilities, we have everything we need.

I live in dormitory № 1. The living conditions are excellent. Student dormitories at BelSU are among the best in Russia.

The campus has various sports grounds, including a soccer field, a basketball and volleyball court, a sports ground with sports equipment and pull-up bars. BelSU always holds various sports competitions.

I'd advise future first-year students to progress in the areas they like. Don't follow other people's advice on where you should go and what you should do, if that's not interesting to you!
