Vlada Gotsak, Kazakhstan. The first-year Master's student majoring in Oriental and African Studies at the BSU Institute of Oriental Studies

Studying at the Institute of Oriental Studies of Banzarov Buryat State University, I not only gained excellent knowledge but also had an infinite number of warm memories and positive emotions. The teaching staff, university administration, and especially the International Relations Department – all of them were sympathetic to us and always met us halfway, never refusing to help.

After earning my Bachelor's degree, I decided to continue my education at my favorite university. And I keep saying proudly that I am a student at Buryat State University!

Popular study programs

Students pursuing engineering fields of study undertake work placements at real enterprises-the university partners where students learn the subtle details of their profession and often get a job as early as this stage. Most graduating Bachelors are fully-fledged specialists in their field already!

Many of our graduates pursue Master's degrees combining the learning process with their work activities. This is facilitated by a flexible study schedule.

General Medicine

There is a traditionally high demand for places for training medical specialists. When you apply to the Institute of Medicine, you are not required to take the Unified State Exam in chemistry – you must pass the Internal entrance exam – the professional chemistry test.

Students undertake internships at the medical institutions in the city of Ulan-Ude where they acquire skills and abilities required for such a demanding and important profession under the supervision of experienced tutors

Linguistics. Translation and Translation Studies

The Institute of Philology, Foreign Languages and Mass Communications is known far beyond the university. It is here that graduates acquire the very same "London" accent which is highly rated among professional interpreters.

Oriental and African Studies

At the Institute of Oriental Studies, you can study not only Oriental languages and literature but also such fields of study as History of Asian and African Countries; Socio-Economic Development of Asian and African Countries, Foreign Studies, and Tourism.

You can also study popular languages – Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Mongolian languages as part of the exchange program using network modes of study.

While studying, students have a unique opportunity not only to visit the target-language country but also to undertake study placement there and then embark on a Master's degree, if desired.

Mathematical Support and Administration of Information Systems. Information Systems and Databases major

The region's best IT specialists are trained here. Based on the results of the finals of the World Programming Championship in Northern Eurasia – 2022, it can be said without prejudice that BSU programmers are the best in Eastern Siberia!


The competition is high, even for fee-paying places. This is not surprising as BSU lawyers are rightfully considered the region's best! Bachelor graduates can pursue Master's programs later.

Zahriddin Rahmatov, Tajikistan. The sixth-year student at the BSU Institute of Medicine

I had been dreaming of becoming a doctor since childhood. And I decided to come to Russia, namely the city of Ulan-Ude, literally in summer, before applying.

Our university employs out-and-out professionals and provides high-quality training! And I really like studying here and living in such a beautiful city.

I'd like to express my deepest gratitude to all the staff members of the International Relations Department not only as an international student but also as an ordinary person– for a warm welcome and conscientious attitude to all international students. Thank you for everything!

Both Baikal and the coastal areas are notable for their unmatched flora and fauna, which makes these places really unique and always attractive to scientific minds and numerous travel enthusiasts and real adventure seekers.

The Department of Russian as a Foreign Language in cooperation with the International Relations Department holds traveling summer and winter schools on the shore of Lake Baikal with an eventful academic (Russian language classes, master classes) and sightseeing and entertainment program.

Maksat Hemraev, Turkmenistan. The first-year Master's student majoring in Digital Technologies in Economics at the Institute of Economics and Management

I have the warmest memories of our university. Inside the university, you become at once a part of one big family where you will be taken care of and supported in difficult situations, especially if you are a citizen of a foreign country. The university's inner culture allows you to blend into the student life and make new friends and acquaintances at once starting from the first year of study. We have student councils, and the university always holds events we should participate in. You'll just not be able to keep out of it.

I am thankful to Banzarov BSU and all the teaching staff for the knowledge which I gained at the Faculty of Economics and Management and successfully apply now at the Department of Planning and Finance. It employs cool and friendly teachers, entrepreneurs, Professors and Doctors of Sciences.

Also, I am grateful for the opportunity to live in comfortable conditions. There is a football field near the dormitory, and the dormitory comprises a reading room where you can not only read but also watch movies with your friends.

Looking back, I can safely say that student years are the best years of human life.
