Ahmadi Ali Reiza, Afghanistan. School of Economics and Management

Choosing a university, I visited many Russian cities and decided on PNU in Khabarovsk. I was the only student from Afghanistan here, and this motivated me to get acquainted with guys from other countries.

During the first year, I studied Russian because I didn't speak it at all. I didn't even know how to greet people. Now I can easily go to the city center and communicate effectively.

Now we are studying mathematics, economic theory, philosophy, but somehow we are not studying computer science, which I will need in my future profession. That's why I read and study a lot by myself.

Xavier Francois Habinshuti, Rwanda

In my native country, I worked as a computer technology teacher at a polytechnic college. I got an offer to take part in a PhD scholarship program. I applied for it, and Pacific National University chose me.

In the beginning, I took a preparatory course in an engineering group. I studied Russian, speech styles, mathematics, physics, and Russian geography. Russian was the most difficult subject.

In Rwanda, we know little about Russia, only that it is a country with super technology, which ranks among the top five best countries in the world. When I was coming to Russia, I wasn't worried. I read about the country and knew that the police work well here. And if you come legally, everyone will be happy to see you.

The education system in Russia is more developed than that in Rwanda, as it exists for a longer time. Teachers have more opportunities for enhancement in Russia. There are libraries and laboratories. That's great.
