Accommodation and living costs in Russia are minimal
I chose Siberian Federal University for its good rankings and faculty. Also, accommodation and living costs in Russia are minimal. It was difficult to enrol, but I very much wanted to study here, so I did my best. Before enrolling at School of Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering, I took a year-long Russian language course at SibFU Centre for International Education.
When I was still in my first year I understood that I should take my studies seriously and tried to speak more Russian. I’m now completing my studies and enjoying my final days at the university. SibFU gave me lots of knowledge and useful lessons. After getting my degree I’d like to stay in Krasnoyarsk and work in my major; I can also work as a translator from Arabic.
