vector quotes My dream was to enter the university where I would study space science. Soviet spaceman Yuri Gagarin and Tereshkova, the first woman in space, inspired me. I wanted to study in Russia, but I had to learn Russian. To be honest, it was hard for me. Russian is difficult. But if you have good teachers and friends around you, you can do everything. I was looking for a place to study Russian for a long time. I was comparing conditions and tuition fees. I chose Kazan and this academy. I've never regretted opting for this Center. After completing the courses, I will apply to one of the Moscow universities.

vector quotes I liked studying at the academy very much because it is one of the oldest and best Russian higher education institutions. It has highly qualified teachers. I came back home after graduation. I worked at a key veterinary laboratory, the vaccine production department. Then I moved to another department – the parasitology department. I really liked my work, and I decided to pursue a PhD degree. As I already knew how interesting it was to study at Kazan Veterinary Academy, I decided to continue my studies here. I recommend this academy to all my acquaintances and compatriots. If you have any doubts about applying to the academy, put them off and apply. You won't regret it!
