To learn Russian Ukhta is a good choice.

Caliskan Berk, Turkey. Graduated in: -

I am a preparatory course student at USTU. I had been to some countries and decided to study abroad. This situation improves my skills and increases my confident.

To learn Russian Ukhta is a good choice. As far as I know in the Southern part of Russia there are many Turkish students. If talking about the price range for education services, it is cheaper in Russia than in other countries. Russia wasn’t my only one option. Also I thought of going to Poland or Germany. I got to know about USTU from Internet. This university was faster at papework than others.  I can emphasise that the Russian language education is quite good. I have some friends, who study in different cities of Russia, and they are not fully satisfied. For now, I can say there is no problem.

I do not have a specific plan. Like other people do, I will be looking for a job after pursuing Master’s degree and graduation.

In Russia I saw snow for the first time in my life.

Chirinda Mufaro Madanha, Zimbabwe . Graduated in: -

My first impression of Russia was a cold weather and that no one speaks English. Travelling by plane from Moscow to the Komi Republic, I was only one black skinned person on board. At first I didn’t feel quite comfortable, but people around me didn’t let me feel different. They were so friendly and everyone tried to help me. Even if they couldn’t express everything they wanted to with words in English, their hand language was enough for me to understand.

My first travel to Russia was courageous for me: a new country, new people, new culture, difficulties in communication. The only words I have learned before my trip were “Хорошо” and “Спасибо”.

In Russia I saw snow for the first time in my life. Now my dream is to make a snowman. I believe this dream and lots of others will come true very soon!

I should add that people here are extremely friendly and secretly curious.

Lakhani Owaise, India. Graduated in: -

After landing at the Moscow airport and looking at the Russian landscape with my own eyes, the ground covered with much snow seemed cloudy blanket with small islands of land to me. I saw the snow before, but so much – it was my first experience!

Many people say that it is very cold in Russia. Yes, it is true, but, for example, the temperature -10 degrees is quite comfortable for me. Maybe it is because I have Russian roots – my ancestors were born in Bokhara (Uzbekistan). In addition, I can’t say that I have a hard time learning the Russian language. The reason for that is my native language – Urdu, which is as difficult as Russian is.

To tell the truth, the study in Russia wasn’t my only one option. I was also thinking of going to Germany and Japan. Everywhere the conditions were almost similar. Luckily, the final decision came quickly. Your University responded my enquiry faster than other did. That’s why I’m in Ukhta now. I should add that people here are extremely friendly and secretly curious. I can read much interest in their eyes when they see me, but only some of them dare to come up to me and start the conversation.

I really like the town I live in and study!

Kanat Naurzbaev, Kazakhstan. Graduated in: -

At school I was fond of music and science. Not to say that I was an excellent student, because I had a large number of unsatisfactory marks. I have never asked myself, where to go for my further study and what I want to become? At that time I didn't think about study at another city or even another country at all. Well, my only one dream was to join a music band.

But at the end of the school year  I heard two friends of mine wanted to go to the northern Russian town called Ukhta. Later I learned something about the Ukhta University and about that fact that the town of Ukhta is the birthplace of the first Russian oil, etc. I set my sights on study in Russia too. My parents didn't mind me to go to Ukhta, otherwise, they even supported my decision, and I appreciate it a lot. Right now I live in the student hostel and have everything necessary for my living. I really like the town I live in and study!

I quickly got acquainted with my fellow students and lecturers, and realized that all of them are friendly to me and ready to support.

Strahinja Divnic, Serbia. Graduated in: -

I am a second year student of Oil and Gas Engineering (Master degree), I study development and operation of oil and gas fields. I got a chance to study at Ukhta University thanks to the grant received from Gazprom. At first I had to get used to new schedule at the university, because the academic year in Serbia begins since October. I quickly got acquainted with my fellow students and lecturers, and realized that all of them are friendly to me and ready to support. After graduation from the university I plan to return to Serbia and start my career there.
