Derzhavin TSU has played a pivotal role in my professional career. I pursued my PhD degree here and defended my thesis in 2003.

Studying at Derzhavin TSU not only broadened my career horizons. It also let me immerse myself in the multicultural learning environment. This experience was of the utmost importance. I experienced scientific and creative enrichment by studying the Russian language, society, science.

Today I am Dean of the Faculty of Russian Language of Hainan University, one of the top Chinese universities, and strongly support TSU's cooperation with Hainan University in education and culture. To my mind, Derzhavin University deserves credit for offering its students excellent opportunities for professional development and personal enhancement, acquisition of cross-cultural communication skills based on mutual understanding and mutual respect between representatives of different countries and peoples.
