Natalia Shepeleva, Head of the FESTU International Student Office

We always have special feelings for international first-year students. We help them with everything: from meeting at the airport to medical examination.

We assist them in solving all kinds of everyday problems: if someone has come without winter clothes, we go together and buy them. For example, if someone needs special ware for cooking ethnic foods at the dormitory kitchen, we also help buy them. The important thing is that students feel we care about them. They are not alone and can easily focus on their studies.

Javohir Davudov, Uzbekistan. First-year student at FESTU Institute of Power Engineering

I've joined FESTU on the advice of my friend who is a second-year student at this university. I passed my exams online and became a student.

The staff members of the International Student Office met me at the airport of Khabarovsk, accommodated me in the dormitory, and helped me undergo a medical examination and get insurance.

I share my dormitory room with my compatriot who supports me. I was given a cordial welcome in my academic group. I started studying with great interest and I believe that I will gain sound knowledge here.

Irina Kharina, Head of the Russian Language Center "Preparatory Department"

Students coming to study at our university from non-CIS countries very often lack knowledge of the Russian language to study professional disciplines. Our Russian Language Center uses unique RUDN's methods of teaching Russian as a foreign language. And we are very happy when international students defend their graduation theses in Russian at the end of their studies!
