I've been living for six years in Russia already. Adaptation was not difficult because I always had my friends from my country, university, dormitory around me.

I started studying Russian beforehand - alphabet and nouns starting with each letter. I became the best student for my university teacher. We spent a lot of time in public places. That helped me learn the language faster.

I really like the Russian food the guys cooked in the dormitory. We always had a friendly atmosphere there. I like taking nature hikes in Novosibirsk. The city has a lot of parks with winter and summer activities such as skiing, skating, and biking.

I always recommend NSTU to my friends. My younger brother is also studying here already.

Both the quality of education and attitude to international students are good. If we have a problem, we always have someone who helps us solve it. I appreciate the International Department staff's work for their advice and assistance.
