For me SUSU is an opportunity to acquire skills and knowledge in any area I want, SUSU is the great way to broaden your horizons, and also is just cool opportunity for your future career. It is one of the best universities in Chelyabinsk.

Talking about AISA, it could be easily called your second home, where you can find a lot of friends from different countries, as well as it is the place where you can develop yourself in non-studying activities. AISA is about communication, cultural exchange, different languages and, for sure, it is about connections (friends, acquaintances, etc.) forever.

South Ural State University is the way to future success! Students acquire unique competencies and increase their competitiveness in the labour market, as well as expand their ambitions in the field of scientific activity, sports, creativity and volunteering. It was also easy for me to adapt thanks to the Association of International Students. AIS will help with the documents, check into the dormitory, etc. The Association also holds many interesting events to strengthen friendship between nations.

At SUSU they offer quality of education judging from the expertise of the professors and lecturers(at least in my faculty -Architectural and Construction faculty).
In addition to main studies, students at SUSU have the opportunity to realize themselves in different new fields if they wish to. This is made possible by the creation of student Union and the Association of International Students (AIS).
AIS allows students to develop their leadership skills through organizing events like festivals, sports competition and forums within the university and within the region in a bid to encourage cooperation amongst foreign students within and other universities. And the university supports all these by providing the space to do so amongst other needed resources. Apart from that AIS also represents students' interests in the university. I would encourage applicants to consider SUSU as a stepping stone into their careers.

For me, SUSU is the place where I met many wonderful people and got to know different cultures, and where I will complete my education and receive my bachelor's degree next year. AISA (Association of International Students and Alumni) is a family that welcomes international students from the moment they arrive until they graduate. Here, one students conduct various cultural events and activities for other students.

I have just finished a preparatory course and I speak Russian so well already. Maybe you're wondering why I learned Russian so quickly, that's what I'll tell you. the Russian language study program at the university is fantastic. I wonder what other programs would be like, and I already believe that they are even better. In addition, I was actively involved in the association of international students from the very beginning, and talking with them and getting to know them helped me to listen and learn so quickly

In my opinion, SUSU is one of the universities in Russia where amazing and just best teachers are working, because they, like no one else, understand how to interact with foreign students, how to make the lesson comfortable, and of course, they are able to explain everything gradually, so I understand what they teach. That's why I really love SUSU and the teachers at this university.

My SUSU Experience: A Journey of Friendship and Learning
I have always dreamed of studying abroad and meeting people from different cultures and backgrounds. That’s why I chose to pursue my education at South Ural State University (SUSU) in Chelyabinsk, Russia. SUSU is not just a place of academic excellence, but also a home away from home for me and many other international students. SUSU has a welcoming and supportive environment for students from all over the world. The faculty and staff are friendly and helpful, always ready to guide us and answer our questions.

But what makes SUSU truly special for me is the Association of International Students and Alumni (AISA), a student organization that aims to help international students adapt to life in Russia and foster intercultural exchange and cooperation. AISA has been a game-changer for me, as it has given me the opportunity to make friends from different countries, learn from their perspectives, and share my own ideas and experiences.

AISA has made me feel more connected and integrated with the local community, and more appreciative of the diversity and richness of the world.

I am grateful to SUSU and AISA for making my study abroad journey a memorable and meaningful one. I have learned a lot, not only academically, but also personally and socially.

South Ural State University (SUSU) is a great choice for my study. As we may know, SUSU is one of the leading universities in Russia, which offers a variety of educational programs taught in both Russian and English. To be honest, I am really interested in the learning environment at SUSU where I can make friends with both the native and international students from different countries around the world. Consequently, studying at SUSU provides me with great opportunities to enhance intercultural competence, which is necessary for effectively adapting in the current globalization. More importantly, I found that the Institute of Linguistics and International Communications offers the high-quality master program of Philology (Theories and Practices of English), which is appropriate to my expectation.
