Advantages of studying in Russia for foreign nationals

Kazan (Volga Region) Federal University

Russian winter is something I was severely lacking

I saw Kazan Federal University as an opportunity to try something new, even if I wasn’t particularly familiar with the institution or even the city itself. But since arriving here with no knowledge of what was to come, I can honestly say I’ve had an amazing experience that I believe will only continue to delight me in the future.

My first days, devoid of any Russian language or knowledge, were made infinitely easier in major part to the fantastic students I was introduced to. The transition from life in a common family home to an immense student hostel, such is the Universiade Village, required some adjustment. However, my peers were there to welcome me and rapidly helped me to embrace student life.

The education I have been provided with in my short time here has been very promising, and I look forward to the future when my studies will continue to accelerate in difficulty and interest!

My preparatory class at KFU allowed me to swiftly develop my Russian language skills, all over four short months – something I considered unimaginable upon arrival, despite my newfound friends trying their best to convince me otherwise. The education system in place ensures continued success/successful students due to the vast experience of the teaching staff who will always put in the extra effort for their students.

The city itself is a welcome distraction from the usual study routine; there’s always an activity yet to be tried out or a timely holiday celebration, which is collectively reveled in by students in the hostel. Despite the large population, the city’s consistent public transport system allows for easy maneuverability and quick familiarisation. My adoration for winter weather was heightened after being engulfed in a white wonderland for several months, something that my previous life was severely lacking!

The university has a storied history, which boasts some outstanding alumni and has been instrumental in education and research for over two centuries now. To be studying at Kazan Federal University and to become a part of this history strongly motivates me to contribute as much as possible in my time here.
