Veronica Krabisang Goves, South Africa

In my country, I completed my Bachelor's degree in microbiology and chemistry. Then I studied for a year in a Master's program. Later I entered TPU Master's program in Nuclear Science and Technology with a specialization in nuclear medicine. TPU delivers this program at an operating facility. I have studied for more than a year, and I am not disappointed. I believe that TPU is the best Russian university to offer this program. The program is very popular with African students because the number of cancer patients has considerably increased on the African continent. The development of nuclear medicine has become a fundamental issue for many African countries.

South Africa already has the equipment to treat these patients. However, there is a shortage of personnel able to work with it. Here I can get the skills to work with this equipment. When I return to South Africa, I will not need time to undergo additional training. I will be able to work in the field of nuclear medicine on the equipment already available there.

There are nuclear reactors in South Africa. One of them, in Pretoria, produces radioisotopes. I hope I will find a job as a specialist in the production of medical radioisotopes.

Regional Specific Features

Tomsk city is located in the east of Western Siberia on the Tom River. It is the oldest major educational, scientific and innovative center in Siberia. Tomsk is called Siberian Athens: the city has six universities and plenty of research institutes, branches, and representative offices of universities in other cities.

The climate is continental and cyclonic. Tomsk is considered one of the cleanest centers by the air quality in Siberia.

Places Of Interest

Winter sports are hugely popular in Tomsk. The city is richly decorated for the New Year's Day, and a lot of snow fortresses and sledding hills are built in the streets.

Tomsk can boast not only unique Siberian nature but also historic architecture. There are a lot of stone and wooden architectural monuments in the city.

Gastronomic Specialties

In Tomsk, you can taste various dishes made from the meat of roe, bear, deer, and elk, slices of frozen fish (various local species), Siberian fish soup with pearl barley and tomatoes, berry sauces, cedar nuts.

Average Temperature

-18 °С in January
+19 °С in July

Mina Sami Bules Tawadros, Egypt

I pursued the unique TPU program in Nuclear Power Plants: Design, Operation and Engineering. Egyptian students enrolled in the program within the quota of the Russian Ministry of Science and Higher Education. Graduates will have a chance to get a job at Rosatom enterprises in Egypt and nuclear research centers.

I liked the Russian education system very much. The subjects I studied were very useful and gave me much theoretical and practical knowledge. If you asked me to assess the quality of training, I'd give TPU 300 points out of 100.

A lot of practical training is what makes studying at the TPU different. This is very important for our profession. Egypt doesn't offer such opportunities.

I am going to return to my home country and work at El Dabaa nuclear power plant, which is now under construction. I am sure my knowledge will be of use to me in my future career.
