I always wanted to study in Russia because it has a worldwide reputation for its high quality education. That is why I applied for a scholarship there. I spent a lot of time researching Russian universities in order to choose the best one. Presentation of TSU made by the vice-rector for International Affairs was a turning point for me. He told a lot about Tomsk, the university, and opportunities that will unfold around us if we become the students of TSU. Vice-rector answered all of our questions at length, even about dormitories.

The standard of living in Tomsk is high, but the prices are low. It's also a very beautiful town. I was happy to know that I got accepted into TSU. I am sure that everyone who has ever been to TSU says that they like the grove and the main building and they are very beautiful indeed. They are the symbols of TSU's long history and embodiment of its spirit. Of course it is not easy to study in Russian. Listening to lectures and doing homework in Russian is a challenge, writing Cyrillic is pretty difficult. But I'm positive that a quality knowledge and experience I'm gaining will undoubtedly help me in the future!
