Преимущества обучения в России для иностранцев

Siberian Federal University

I believe that Russia is one of the best countries for engineering education

I learnt about Siberian Federal University from the Internet. For the past two years, my friend and I have been trawling websites for universities offering training in oilfield development. We initially considered universities in Europe and America. Then my friend said he’d found a university in Russia, I visited its website and I liked eveything, so we decided to apply.

I believe that Russia offers top notch engineering education. After completing my master studies I plan to take a postgraduate programme. SibFU has perfect study and campus life environment. Classrooms are way different from what we had at universities in my home country. Interaction with teachers and mentors differs, too, in that you can easily contact them if necessary, and discuss your problems.

In general, things seem to be easier in Russia, the language is my only big problem at present, I’m learning it on my own. When I planned to come over here I was very worried about the weather. I remember an acquaintance of mine asking me which part of Russia I was going to and when I said “Siberia” she exclaimed that “it’s cold out there, life would be hard.” I didn’t know what to expect: as far as I remember, temperatures in Ghana never dropped below + 17 Celsius. I couldn’t imagine what zero degree temperatures could feel like not mentioning - 35 Celsius which you might expect in Siberia. Actually, things aren’t half bad. You just need warm clothes and try not to overstay outdoors.
