Ivan Kornilaev, Kazakhstan

I entered PGUPS in 2018. At that time, many of my acquaintances and friends from Aktau were going to apply for studies in Saint Petersburg, and I decided to go with them.

At that time, I didn’t know yet what university I would apply to. After walking around many universities, I decided on PGUPS. The Yusupov Palace made me fall in love with itself and gave no chances to other universities.

I am a fourth-year student now. I am writing my graduation thesis. Besides studying, I am involved in extracurricular activities, I entered the Top 100 students of the university, which didn’t go unnoticed by the teachers.
