I’ve been studying at PLSU for five years now. I’ve completed my Master’s degree, and I’m pursuing my PhD degree at the moment. I am very happy to have chosen this university. It has wonderful warm-hearted teachers holding entertaining discussions during their lectures and seminars. I am satisfied with my choice!

Students whose knowledge of the Russian language needs improvement can considerably improve their language proficiency and communication with their fellow students and friends.
I’ve never regretted joining PLSU. It has offered me a lot of creative and professional activities impressing me greatly and helping me gain extensive experience. It is here that I’ve fulfilled myself as a stage actor. Also, it is here that my hobby has become a major source of my achievements. Over almost four years of study, I’ve realized that PLSU not only gives you knowledge but also develops you as a full-fledged person. Or rather it encourages you to develop this person in yourself. And everything else is totally in your hands!
