First of all, I like Russian language, it is very melodic for me, that is why I came here. Secondly, I am studying Power Engineering, and a huge part of the Polish energy industry is connected with Russia. So I am sure that in future I’ll use my Russian language skills effectively. For me the most interesting part of the program was the Speaking club, because there we were talking only in Russian. Since my level is not very high yet, it was quite challenging for me not to switch to English and to speak Russian as much as possible. We discussed different topics and it was indeed very practical, I enjoyed my time in St.Petersburg a lot!

It has been the best summer for me. The course was just for 3 weeks but I have learnt a lot in those 3 weeks and met people from all around the world. We all hung out in the night talking about people and culture. We went around the city and cover all the most awesome places in the city. Thanks to the teachers for being very understanding and patient. They taught us with understanding of our background and made the course very fun. St.Petersburg was awesome. Dasvidanya Russia. Hope to come back again

I have participated in the module “Global Entrepreneurship”. Teachers really motivated us to work on our own project. During this project we learned how design thinking works and we got inspired on how to develop entrepreneurial thinking. Our team had people from France, Russia, Italy, China and Germany. So we got a great experience of working in international team and learned to see where we have our strengths and how we can support each other to get better. So it was a great adventure for me! Also Saint-Petersburg is a very beautiful city and the campus has the great location with all the parks around which makes it a perfect place to work and study. Thank you very much to all who have organized this course!

Now that I have just finished my studies in Russia I can say with no doubts that I have a deeper comprehension about this unique country. What I most liked about my experience in the Summer Program was the opportunity to study and live together with many people from all over the world, Bulgaria, Finland, Italy, Mexico, Switzerland, Romania, the United States, including also other places from Russia! For sure this is not a mere opportunity, but an exercise for peace and fraternity. It is also incredible when you have a group of professionals who are ready to welcome you and offer the foreign students a valuable assistance in so many ways. The trips organized by the coordinators are the highest point of a mature project which learnt that a complete educational experience must go beyond the ordinary classroom. Furthermore, Saint Petersburg is one of the places with greater cultural potential in the world! I strongly recommend this international experience!
