Dildora Binaeva, Uzbekistan. The fourth-year student at VyatSU Institute of Chemistry and Ecology

I came to Russia in 2018. In the beginning, I was scared: a different country, different people, and no acquaintances. Now I think about this period of life with a smile.

I have a lot of friends. I get excellent grades, work at the VyatSU International Office, volunteer at the university and in the city. I represent the Uzbek community in the Kirov city, travel, attend various forums, work on my scientific project, organize events at the university, help students adapt, and tell applicants and th

Elsaid Babiker Haidar Khalil, Sudan. The first-year Master's student the Faculty of Technologies, Engineering and Design

I came to Russia from Sudan in 2016. My Russian was poor, and my studies didn't yield any dividends. I moved to Kirov on the advice of my brother (he was a VyatSU student at the moment). I took a liking to the city at once: it was quiet and comfortable, and I settled down here. I entered the VyatSU Preparatory Department, completed my Bachelor's degree in 2020, and now I am pursuing my Master's degree.

VyatSU is a little family. Our Dean's Office works with each student individually and helps us solve both academic and everyday problems. The dean of our faculty supports students in all their endeavors.

I've been living in Kirov for six years already, and I feel at home at VyatSU. Everybody knows me here and treats me in a friendly way.
