Alexandra Kilina, Head of the Preparatory Department for International Students, praised the students who prepared for a year to enter the educational programs at the university for their efforts.

“Every year, I tell the graduates of the Preparatory Department what a brave thing it is to come to study in another country. Now, I would like to say that this year, you not only decided to take such a serious step when the borders were closed but also went all the way to the moment of receiving a certificate. I wish you not to stop there and continue your educational path in Russian universities!”

The best graduates shared their impressions of their studies at the Preparatory Department of LETI.

“I’m so happy because I lived a year with a new language and new culture. And I love Russia and St. Petersburg so much! Now, I know a lot of things about Russia. The classes were great – our teachers helped us not only with language but also with understanding the culture. They told us about different places in Russia and how people actually live here.”
