I chose the university on recommendations of my friends who were happy with their studies here
Hello, I’m Rashon Chaihakan, I’m 24. I’m a student at Siberian Federal University’s School of Education, Psychology and Sociology; my major is Management of Educational Innovations. When I lived in Thailand I never thought that I could study abroad. After I left school my parents insisted that I go to a Russian university. I came to Siberian Federal University last year to study Russian. I chose the university on recommendations of my friends who were happy with their studies here.
When I arrived in Krasnoyarsk I felt uneasy as I had never been so far away from my home. In a way, Krasnoyarsk reminded me of my home town. Although I could not speak Russian, everybody was trying to understand me and give a hand. I hear that Russian dormitories are not always up to world standards. I can assure you that living conditions are excellent. Dormitories are similar to a Thai condominium which is very convenient for tenants.
I’m a SibFU master student doing research. My paper is focused on comparative analysis of the grading systems in education in Russia and Thailand. My project supervisor is always helpful and supportive and gives good advice. Before coming to Krasnoyarsk I was worried about socialising here. I shouldn’t have; I’ve made many friends from Russia and other countries. We always help each other and I don’t feel lonely here at all.
I’d like to invite everybody to come here to study. This university will give you valuable experience, knowledge, good friends and many useful connections. I’m sure you’ll be happy with your student life if you decide to study at SibFU.
