International Students Testimonials

Advantages of studying in Russia for foreign nationals

Alhamra Mohanad, Iraq

Siberian Federal University

There are friendly people in Siberia; I feel comfortable with them; I’ve found lots of friends

My name is Al Hamra Mohanad, I’m 20 and I come from Iraq. I had attended a Baghdad school before I enrolled at Siberian Federal University; I’m now a first-year student at SibFU School of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering. I have visited Russia before; I travelled to Perm, Voronezh and Ulyanovsk. In Ulyanovsk, I took a year-long Russian language course. When I came to Krasnoyarsk I thought it was the best among the cities I had visited. People are very friendly here; I feel comfortable with them and I’ve found lots of friends.

Siberian Federal University was my conscious choice; I believe it is one of the best universities in Russia. I’m not the only one who thinks so; in Iraq we rank universities into different categories, SibFU is in the first. I’m now a first-year student, my programme is Energy Resources Production and Transportation. I like maths, chemistry and physics best. There are many international students at my university, so I can learn about different cultures and customs.

Our campus has everything necessary within reach; we have a gym and even a theatre; there’s a university shop in the dormitory nearby, so you don’t have to go far to buy food. I wish to work in my degree field after I graduate from the university. I have planned my future for the next five or six years; I plan to start my own IT company; I also plan to start a family.
