Studying in Russia and at Tyumen State University was and will be my best decision. As it helped me grow intellectually and get better every day, this is difficult and seems impossible. It cost me a lot of tears and sweat to get here, and now I am proud of myself, and it only remains for me to progress.

Elgamal Youssef Mohamed Kamel Husein, Egypt. The fourth-year student at the Faculty of Dentistry

After finishing school, I thought seriously about my further education. In my country, it’s very difficult to enter a medical university. But I had wanted to be a doctor since I was a child, that’s why I decided to look for a country that offers high-quality education.

I always wanted to visit Russia. Besides, Russia is the best option in terms of price-quality ratio, and I chose it on my parents’ recommendation.

In 2017, I came to study in Tyumen, and I’ve never regretted it. I liked the city very much. Especially winter, because I love winter so much.

At the Preparatory Department, I tried to master Russian as soon as possible, and I used it whenever possible. To overcome the language barrier, you must work hard and be persistent. It’s incredibly difficult to live in an unknown country without knowing the language. But over a year and a half, I’ve got accustomed to Russian traditions, mentality, and culture.

I concentrate on my studies at the moment but I try to attend events organized by the university for students where international students can fulfill themselves.

Tyumen SMU is our home and family, where everyone helps each other, and we all share a common goal – to get a decent education.
