Studying at Saint Petersburg State University of Aerospace Instrumentation made only good impressions on me. The standards of teaching all the subjects, both major and basic, were very high. Our teachers are not only highly qualified specialists in their fields but also interesting people ready to share their life experience. Also, I'd like to mention the attitude of the international department staff members who treated us like their children, solving all our problems and loving us without condition.

The university held plenty of extracurricular activities such as sports events, intellectual competitions, talent shows, Mister and Missis SUAI, visits to museums and theaters, and many others.

I've never regretted having traveled over 5,000 km and joining SUAI. I feel infinite gratitude and have warm memories!

When I had to choose a university, my only goal was to pursue aviation. Coincidentally, I had the opportunity to choose a great university – SUAI through Rossotrudnichestvo.

I came to Saint Petersburg in August 2017. My first acquaintance with the university made the warmest and the most positive impressions on me. The nice girls at the International Office gave me a warm welcome, told me about everything, showed me everything and helped me.

Concerning the learning process, there were good and not very good moments. Learning shouldn't be easy, but the aspiration to achieve my goal helped me move forward.

I want to say that SUAI is an excellent place for active students who want to show themselves. Such people are valued and loved. The university has excellent student councils, a trade union committee ,and research is conducted. That's why you always have a chance to participate somewhere, show yourself and get an increased scholarship.

I'll specially focus on the dormitories, especially № 3, at 8, Varshavskaya Street. To my mind, it is the best one, with great staff members. It was a pleasure to live there for 4.5 years.

During my university years, I experienced a lot of positive emotions and achieved all my goals.
