Boldsaikhan Nomin, Mongolia

I think that studying abroad helps students acquire a lot of useful skills. I chose the double degree Bachelor’s program (2+2) in Sustainable Innovative Economics. It is implemented in cooperation with Shandong University, one of the leading Chinese universities. I will study economics for 2 years at INRTU and for 2 years in China. I hope that my degree obtained in Russia will help me find a good job.

Mafina Cindy Kelvin, Congo

I'm pursuing the Bachelor’s program in Journalism and Communication. I’ve always wanted to work in the TV industry as a TV hostess or a media manager.

INRTU has its own TV channel. It’s always interesting to be here. In the third year, I’ll be able to study abroad for a semester at any partner university that I’ll choose myself. And I don't have to pay extra for this.
