National Research Nuclear University MEPhI (Moscow Engineering Physics Institute)

Moscow is very beautiful, and there are a lot of museums

I was working in the nuclear industry of South Africa for 4 years when I was offered a grant to study in Russia. I found this offer very interesting. Besides, I want to be part of a large project, which is now implemented in my country – construction of a second nuclear power plant.

The problem which can arise in Russia is language. Now I actively learn it and can say that it is difficult, especially grammar. It differs from English a lot. But we have excellent teachers of Russian in MEPhI, they speak English and can explain what we do not understand. Sometimes there are problems in other subjects, for example, physics or mathematics, when the lecturer speaks quickly. To practice Russian I watch different videos on the Internet. And I can confidently say that the longer I'm here, the less important this issue becomes.

Another interesting point is the weather. In South Africa the temperature does not fall below 10 degrees in winter, whereas in Moscow it is -16. I was impressed. My family asked how I survived. But it's fine, you just need to dress warmer.

In my spare time I walk, see the sights, and often go to the city center. Moscow is very beautiful, and there are a lot of museums. Russians love museums. At home I don’t visit them so often.

MEPhI arranges various activities for students. For example, I was on the Student’s Day. People were singing and had fun. I even received a small gift. In general, I should note that there are very friendly people who are kind to foreigners.
