Daniel Prince Chinga Chinga, Gabon

I’m a first-year student at the Faculty of General Engineering. When I had to decide on a country to get my degree in, I chose Russia. It wasn't a difficult choice for me to make because I was interested in Russian history, particularly, history of great battles it took part in. I knew that Russia is one of the global leaders and boasts an excellent education system. I greatly appreciated this country and keep on doing it now.

Choosing a university, I opted for NNSUACE as I want to become a civil engineer. NNSUACE is a university with a good reputation. It is located in the big beautiful city of Nizhny Novgorod.

I'm happy to have chosen Russia. It's not very easy to study at NNSUACE. But it gives not only a good education but also a great life experience.

I wish everyone, who wants to study in Russia, good health, courage, wisdom, and success. And I'd like to advise all young people to think carefully before choosing the country and the university meeting your interests and ambitions.
