In 2020 I entered PGUPS on the recommendation of my friends studying here. My teachers treat me well, help me, and explain everything. We have interesting practical classes. I’ve made a lot of Russian friends. Saint Petersburg is a very beautiful city. I am happy to study here.
After I had passed selection in Cuba, I got a place at PGUPS within the quota of the Ministry of Science and Higher Education of Russia. Choosing PGUPS proved to be the right decision. Now I’m in my first year, and I like being here very much. Teachers, staff members, and students of this university create a very cozy home-like atmosphere! The university campus and the district where the dormitory is located are very beautiful and interesting. The teachers are highly qualified, and the staff members of the International Relations Department help us solve the problems that arise. My friends and I feel very comfortable at PGUPS.
Why did I choose this university? Honestly, it was the only engineering university to offer the Railway Electric Power Supply major. But I was so surprised by the warmth and comfort that encompassed me for as many as 6.5 years. I was deeply touched by the care given to all international students by the administration and the international department, in particular. I went on weekly tours around all cultural centers and historic sites and visited Saint Petersburg theaters famous for their repertoires. Living conditions are in a league of their own. The dormitory 7a, which I’d rather call a 3-star hotel, was within walking distance of the metro station, near all necessary grocery stores, stores selling sports goods, and hardware stores, and, above all, the mosque and the church. At the request of students, the university administration upgraded the big sports court where we all played football, tennis, volleyball, etc. There were even ping pong tables in the dormitory. I often spent nights at the electric power supply laboratory, not because I had a lot of tasks, but because my practical work was very interesting and was absorbing me. I’d like to thank all PGUPS staff members for making a contribution to my development as a competent specialist.
