VK – Education for foreigners in Kirov (Russia)

Josue Lopez, Guatemala. Faculty of Electrical Engineering

It has always been my dream to enter a Russian university. I got acquainted with the Russian language and culture during my study placement in Kirov. Five months later, I decided to stay here. I like the city. I've made new friends and acquaintances. I thought it would be difficult to get admission, but the university staff members helped me prepare the documents and undergo all procedures. Of course, I had some trouble with my studies in the beginning. But my Russian was gradually improving, and my language learning progress made things easier for me. The teachers help me. If I don’t understand something, they will certainly explain it.

Göksenin Berkay Kyrömeroglu, Turkey. Preparatory faculty

Since my first days in Russia, VyatSU's International Department staff members have been helping me. They speak English fluently, that’s why I didn't have any trouble due to the language barrier. I like the way they teach Russian here. I've been studying it for five years already, but I never felt that I knew Russian as well as I do now.
