Sajid Kadiri, The winner of the universitywide competition “Best Foreign Student”, Afghanistan

In Afghanistan, Russian education is considered to be of top quality, and we highly value it. I found out about BelSU long ago. I examined the information about the university and Belgorod in general, and what I liked most was the city's appearance. That's how I decided on this university. BelSU provides plenty of opportunities and platforms for self-fulfillment so that every student can achieve success and reach their inner potential.

Carlos Jorge Quete, graduate of BelSU, Professor at two top universities of Angola

Every international student will probably agree with me that poor language proficiency is the greatest challenge of studying in Russia. However, communication with my Russian friends helped me master the language soon. BelSU made a good impression on me. It's a real sanctuary of sciences where students get a good professional background. In 2014, I graduated from the Institute of Law with honors, and a year later, being a postgraduate student, I worked as an assistant at the Department of Constitutional and International Law.

After completion of postgraduate studies in 2017 I was awarded the qualification of research teaching fellow, and my greatest achievement is a PhD in law that I obtained after defending a thesis under the agreement of cooperation between BelSU and University of Warmia and Mazury in Olsztyn (Poland).
