I am a student at the Faculty of Railway Operation and Logistics. My major is Commerce. When I found out about the double degree program implemented by PGUPS in cooperation with the Finnish university LAB University of Applied Sciences, I went to Finland to undertake a one-year study placement as part of the International Business program. This program gave me the opportunity to study abroad, get acquainted with the education system, gain more knowledge, practice English, and meet people from all over the world. After I come back, I will earn two degrees – from PGUPS and LAB. And it only takes fives years to complete all of this.
