– When did you enter SUSU?

– I entered SUSU in 2021 but initially I chose distance learning – I was staying in my country.

– Was it your first choice of university or did you apply to any other university?

– SUSU was my only choice for some reasons. Of course I was viewing a lot of sites of different universities. But SUSU has attracted me more than others. And there was master’s program in tourism in which I had been interested. Then I decided to talk to my friends about SUSU. We all have found our respective majors at this university. And the chosen was made.

– What was the procedure of entering the university?

– First I was preparing all necessary documents. Also I was going for language courses. It wasn’t difficult for me because I had already studied abroad. And I have already worked in tourism and have made documents connected with it.

– Who studies with you in your program?

– There are 17 students in our group. Most of them are Russian students. There are 5 or 6 international students, most of them speak Russian, including students from Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan. I talk to Russian students who speak English, and they are friendly.

– Have you been able to participate in any scientific or social project since you came to Russia?

– Currently, I haven’t participated in any project yet because I am not confident at my Russian. But I am already a member of volunteer team of the Association of International Students and Alumni. And I am also a member of the Association of Mongolian Students in Russia.

– What do you do in your free time?

–  I like walking in the park in my free time. I also like art events, so I actively take part in such events organized by the university. For example, workshop in a cooking club, meetings in a singing club or evening out at the theatre.

– Tell us a little bit about Chelyabinsk. What pros and cons have you seen for yourself?

– I like this city. I like that it is surrounded by forests, and there is a lot of nature in it and around. The downside for me is lack of sunshine. But the city is easy and rich.

– And how do you plan to use your education in future?

– I am a professional tour guide in my country. I can already give tours in English and Korean. Now I want to become a Russian-speaking guide and travel mentor. And I wish I made many trips with tourists in Russia.

– What was your greatest challenge about living in Russia?

– Russian language! I think if I didn't know another language, it would be very hard. Russian is really sophisticated!

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

– Please try to cope with your discouragement when you come to study. If you try really hard, you’ll be a success. And SUSU will help you! The program for international students is really good.
