It’s important to undergo practical training while pursuing a Master’s degree. And I am happy with the number of hours of practical training in psychology that allowed me to easily work on theoretical material. My fellow students who already work as psychologists always share the information with me. All this stimulated me to pursue science, and I’m planning to embark on a PhD degree.

I can confidently say that I've fulfilled myself as a future researcher at SUSU. The university has created a favorable environment for training in the field of power engineering. Not only did I gain new knowledge, but I also got new experience in working on complex scientific problems. And I’m going back to my native country with this experience.
