Nguen Thanh Lam, Vietnam

I like living in Russia very much, though it took me a long time to get accustomed to the local climate. Before I came to Russia, I had bought some warm clothes. But, when I came here, I realized that it’s not exactly what I needed. I had to buy other winter footwear and a jacket. I took a fancy to Russian cuisine. I always have meals in the institute's canteen and café. I live only a few steps away from the institute, in the modern dormitory.

MIPT student life is full of events. We take part in various cultural and sports events such as Doors Open Day, the Miss MIPT contest, football matches, championships, and many others. I can say that MIPT has everything we need to lead an active life: gyms, a swimming room, a stadium, a football hall, a skating rink. Russia and the institute made a great impression on me.

As a MIPT student, I can say that the institute puts a lot of time into the development of the favorable environment for studying and free communication. I like the institute's teaching style. Our professors always try to create a comfortable environment, where students aren’t afraid to ask questions and share their experiences.

Here you can join the Russian academic community — that's one of the main reasons why I chose a Master's degree at MIPT. I'd like to add that I really appreciate the international department's help and positive attitude to students. I wish MIPT success in training future scientists for our society.

Not only Russian but also European, Asian, and American students and scientists know MIPT well. It's not easy to study at the institute, but you have an opportunity to get a high-quality education. As I am a foreign national, the cultural differences and language barrier make the learning process even more difficult. The Russian language is a language of poetry and literature, it's so beautiful, but you should work hard to master it. However, you should try to overcome all these difficulties to learn from world-class teachers, gain in-depth knowledge, and take part in the research.

I am from Salvador. It’s not the most developed country. Methods of teaching and knowledge assessment used in Salvador and Russia differ markedly from each other. Studying at MIPT meets all modern education requirements.
