Advantages of studying in Russia for foreign nationals
© SibFU

Sebastian Sativa, Columbia

Siberian Federal University

Yes, it is cold in Siberia, but the nature is absolutely beautiful!

When I was 20 I wanted to turn over a new leaf, move to another country, get education abroad and learn more about a different culture. I chose Russia and Siberia wishing to come to Krasnoyarsk and enrol at Siberian Federal University. Foreigners normally associate Russia with cold and bears. Yes, it is cold here, but the nature is absolutely beautiful! I believe this country should be a major travel destination.

I was interested in Russian history and culture from the very beginning, but I think I’ve come to love the country because of its good people. Before arriving in Krasnoyarsk, I studied Russian culture and traditions and did research of my own to find out more about the Russian nation. They do look serious but that’s normal, you can hardly find ever-smiling people here in such weather. I found myself in amicable environment, with teachers, fellow students and passers-by always trying to help. I found fine friends here.

As it happens, training in my field of study is not provided in English, so I’m doing a Russian-taught programme. I have no problems with the language barrier: teachers are articulate understanding that I’m the only foreigner in our group. Russian is a beautiful and difficult language and this is a vast country, so you have to learn to speak Russian since you decided to come here.
