Salomão Jeurisio Bonde, Angola. Student of Institute of Electric Power Engineering and Electronics. The winner of the contest for international students in the Author Song category

A year after I had entered the university in my country, my school principal called me and told me that there was an opportunity for me to study abroad. I had to choose from Portugal, Morocco, and Russia. I didn't think twice and chose Russia at once!
I liked everything at KSPEU: the way students are assessed, grade books, the system of accumulating the scores you need to be allowed to take exams. What is particularly convenient is that you can see your scores and all news about student life on the university's official website and in your account.
Teachers treat students as equals. You can contact them after classes to ask some questions or share opinions. But I prefer laboratory and practical classes to lectures. You can see the result of your work immediately.
I take part in all festivals and contests held by KSPEU, write songs in Russian and sing them to guitar. I also do photography and handball.
The only thing I still can't get accustomed to is the snowy winter in Russia. In Angola, we think that it's cold outside when we have +18 °C.
Now I am pursuing my Master's degree. I am sure that I'll find a good job after graduation because the Russian diploma is worth its weight in gold in my country.

  • Territorial connectivity of Russia due to the development of smart transportation and telecommunication systems
Ahmed Mohamed, Egypt. Student majoring in Renewable Energy Sources

I came to study in Russia because Egypt and Russia always were good friends. Tuition fees in Russia are lower compared to Western countries.
I like Kazan very much. It's the third largest city in Russia. It is famous for its beautiful landscapes, good urban environment, and universities.
I chose KSPEU because it's very famous. Many of my teachers in Egypt recommended it to me.
I don't think that Russian is particularly difficult, but you should work hard to learn it.
In the future, I'll come back home and find a job at one of the top power engineering companies. Maybe, I'll stay in Russia if I have such an opportunity.

Daniel Paluku Lwanzo, Democratic Republic of the Congo. The holder of the Russian Government and the Russian President scholarships, the winner of the All-Russian RFL Olympiad for International Students

I finished school with flying colors and found out that there was a chance to study in Russia for free and get a scholarship. I took the test and passed the competitive selection. I chose Kazan because life in Kazan is half as expensive as in Moscow.
I had to put a lot of effort into learning Russian. But now I have an excellent command of it. I do research, speak at conferences, which is impossible without good knowledge of the language. I have to write articles in Russian.
I've spent four years in Russia and never came back home because the flight is very expensive. But I don't regret studying in Kazan. I chose Russia myself, and I like living here. After graduation, I plan to come back home.
