Student’s Opinion: Faridun Aralov, Tajikistan

Faridun Aralov from Tajikistan is getting his Master’s Degree at SUSU Law Institute. He loves participating in cultural events and wants to become a great specialist. Read on to learn more about his experiences at SUSU.

– Why did you choose to study in Russia?

– It was not by chance that I decided to get my higher education in Russia. I knew the Russian language very well since my childhood, and I felt more comfortable studying in Russia. Also, I thought that studying abroad would be a good experience for me.

– What do you remember most about your study?

–I guess the most important things for me were friendliness and a good attitude from both students and professors.

– How do you plan to use your education in future?

– First of all, I want to develop my skills in my field of study and get practice. That’s why I started to work in a small firm.

– What was your first impression about South Ural State University?

– My first impressions of the university were mixed. When I first saw the main university building, I liked it very much, but as I had no friends and acquaintances here I was also a little sad.

– Did you get any help from your compatriots having arrived to Chelyabinsk earlier than you?

– There were very few of my compatriots at the university when I entered, and I didn't know them. I only knew one older fellow compatriot who was in his senior year and showed me around the university at first. But I know that there is the Association of International Students and Alumni at SUSU. They help international students with documents and solve different problems. They also organize bright holidays and I took part in Navruz once.

– Do you take part in student life (volunteer center, School of young leaders, sport clubs, dance clubs, choir)?

– I am actively involved in student extracurricular life, but I am not a member of any organization. Together with my mentors and classmates we often visited orphanages or shelters for homeless animals.

– What perspectives does a specialist with a Russian diploma have in your country?

– If you are a specialist with good knowledge and necessary skills, you will become successful. And of course, prospects for a good specialist with a Russian diploma are excellent, youI will have to take a retraining course.

– What would you wish your compatriots who are choosing a university now?

– SUSU has become like a second home for me during my time of studies. To my fellow compatriots as well as to all those who are coming to our university I advise to enjoy every day of the study and to take maximum from your student life, because this is the best period of your life and it happens only once!
