Advantages of studying in Russia for foreign nationals
© UrFU

Rogers Sure Oketch, Kenya

Ural Federal University named after the first President of Russia B.N. Yeltsin

The Russian language course is very intense and well-structured for beginners

My name is Rogers Sure. I’m from Nairobi, Kenya. I love history and that comes with a desire to travel. Russia is the seventh country I have visited but the first outside Africa.

I’m currently studying Russian language with hopes of securing admission to study engineering in the next academic year.

The Russian language course is very intense and well-structured for beginners. Unlike some in my class, I came to Russia without prior contact with the language. I memorised a few words during my transfer in Istanbul but nothing much.

The programme is divided into 6 sections: grammar, reading, listening, phonetics, speaking, and writing. I have so far taken a fancy to grammar, reading, and writing. They are my favourite lessons. I’m struggling with phonetics, I think, largely because of my Nilotic background.

I love UrFU. I love the staff and students. Everyone I have been in contact with has been nothing but helpful. It’s a great learning environment!
