I am pursuing the Bachelor's degree in Design at RSU named after A. N. Kosygin.

I consider that success in research can be achieved thanks to the optimal learning environment arousing passion and a sense of responsibility towards research. RSU named after A. N. Kosygin has provided me with all the good conditions that helped me, as a foreigner, to interact and integrate into the student community.

I am 23 years old. I've competed my studies at RSU named after A. N. Kosygin. Unfortunately, this was a period of the coronavirus pandemic, but this didn't ruin my impression of the university.

Thanks to my teachers, I learned a lot. In addition to the lessons, I learned how to become better and happier. Although I have many drawbacks, I did my best day by day.

Studying far from home, I was gaining new impressions. Although I didn't have my family beside me, I could count on support from my new friends. It was great to study here!
