Omar , Lebanon. OSMU student

It is very cold in Omsk, and you should prepare for that. Someone would say it’s warm here, but people from warm countries wouldn’t. We seldom go out, and we only go to university by our special bus.

I like living here very much. In Lebanon, we have quite a different education system, and we study for a longer period of time than you do. We have few practical classes, and Lebanese universities sometimes don’t teach the course content the way I’d like it to be taught. At Omsk State Medical University, we have a lot of practice, our teachers are good, and the course content is taught in an excellent way. For example, the Latin language is not taught in Lebanon, but we study it here, and that's great.

The adaptation process was rather easy, despite the difference in climate. The university has prepared well for the arrival of international students. We can easily communicate with our teachers and, get support from the university staff. Indeed, we have an easier time here than in our country. Obviously, limited Russian language proficiency creates some difficulties. We find it hard to find our way around the city and its suburbs, but we can overcome these difficulties in general.

Arrival and adaptation

  • Upon arrival, foreign citizens are met by the Dean’s Office staff speaking foreign languages, which improves communication.
  • Health insurance policies are issued on the following day by the insurance company cooperating with the university.
  • All required documents are executed and medical examinations and fingerprinting are done within two or three working weeks.
  • Omsk State Medical University offers various adaptation programs with the participation of both teachers and Russian-speaking students. This makes integration into the learning process and student environment as comfortable as possible.
  • Students check in at the dormitory on the day of their arrival. Foreigners are accommodated in dormitory №1 located near the educational buildings.
  • Omsk is a modern city with well-developed infrastructure that attracts a great number of international students from all over the world.
