Graduation of the Saint-Petersburg State Agrarian University Preparatory Department Students

There was one more graduation of the preparatory department students, who were trained in additional general educational programs ensuring the preparation of foreign citizens for training in professional educational programs of an economic orientation in Russian.

The students studied Russian language, mathematics, Russian history and social science.

The economic group involved citizens of five countries: Nigeria, Cameroon, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Syria, Sri Lanka. The students confirmed their knowledge at the final exams. Now the doors to the world of Russian higher education are open for them.

All students were united by a common desire to learn Russian, to understand Russian culture and the mentality of Russian people. We can say that it was the cultural and regional material that aroused the liveliest interest and discussion in the group. Discussions arose quite often, fortunately, they were friendly and did not concern such taboo topics as religion, politics, gender differences and others.

It should be noted that the transition to online education was difficult for the students. It's better to learn a foreign language in live communication. However, they weren't confused, and after a short adaptation period, they returned to the same pace of mastering the Russian language and other subjects.

The admission of foreign citizens to the preparatory department for the 2020/21 academic year is going on. You can apply for this program on our website. You can send your questions by e-mail
