International Students Testimonials

Peter the Great St. Petersburg Polytechnic University

I got used to life in Russia for less than a week

At SPbPU I am studying in the Master's degree international program of International Business Development. I have always been interested in business and management, that is why this field of study became the best choice for me. We work a lot in the sphere of different projects, and this is very efficient teaching method from the point of view of gain in experience and valuable knowledge. We study in English. I have good knowledge in this language, and I believe it was enough for me to come to SPbPU. I had learnt a lot at my university in Iran, but here in Russia I also had a very good language practice with other international students from all over the world. But even if you study in international program, I recommend you to learn Russian, at least some useful words and phrases. Not everyone in Russia speaks English, so for shopping, or going to some places, it is better if you know a little bit Russian: it would be easier for you to live. As for me, I think I got used to life in Russia for less than a week. My classmates helped me a lot, I found friends really soon. Now I am preparing for my Master's Thesis defense. Also I am working in the international company which is placed in Russia as a sales manager, and after graduation I am going to move to its office in Cyprus. But also in future I’d like to study PhD in Russia.
