I graduated from the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science of DSU in 2012. Now I'm working at Al-Mustansiriya University in Baghdad. I learned Russian at the preparatory department and I'm glad that I had wonderful teachers. I'd like to kindly thank them. I miss Dagestan and Makhachkala.

Five research projects of postgraduate students of the Faculties of Biology, Physics, Chemistry, and the Faculty of Foreign Languages are the winners of the competition held by the Russian Foundation for Basic Research in 2020.

Postgraduate Physics students from Iraq and Yemen are the winners of the VIII All-Russian Contest of Scientific and Creative Works of International Students and Postgraduates of Russian Universities.

Now I am a postgraduate student specializing in the Caucasus History at Tula State University. But I don't fall out of touch with DSU and often send cards and greetings to my teachers whom I love greatly. I’m sure that DSU gives excellent knowledge of many subjects necessary for further education and I'd recommend it to everyone who wants to study in Russia.
