Soliman Mahmoud Mohamed Farag, Egypt. First-year student

In the beginning, I chose CSU and Chelyabinsk by chance – I just wanted to study Russian.

I chose CSU to pursue my Bachelor's degree because I liked the university and preparatory courses. I advised all my Egyptian friends to apply to CSU.

I did it because our teachers were ready to cooperate. Both Nadezhda Aleksandrovna (our leading teacher) and other teachers explain the course content well.

The migration center plays a crucial role in student adaptation. Many Russian students become our friends and help us find out more about the city we live in, the Russian culture.

Abdelmoniem Mohamed Hassan Ali Mohammed, Egypt. First-year student

I chose Chelyabinsk because I thought that this city was small and living in this city would be easy.

I really liked my preparatory courses. We studied not only Russian but also other subjects such as chemistry, biology, physics. 

I liked our teachers most of all. They explained all the information to us in a good and interesting way. I decided to pursue my studies at CSU. Here I have friends and the opportunity to learn a lot of new things.

I hope that I'll master Russian, English and German languages during my study in Russia to speak fluently with different people.
