True stories of our graduates


Goksenin Berkay


Preparatory Faculty

From my first days in Russia, I was supported by VyatSU International Office: they speak English, so I had no difficulties with communication or any language barrier. The University regularly organizes various events, that’s great! There's a lot of fun there. For example, once we participated in a competition, and our team of international students was missing one person. So VyatSU Rector Valentin Pugach joined us – it was much fun! I like the way the Russian language is taught here. I have been studying Russian for five years, but I’ve never spoken as fluent as I can now. That’s all thanks to Vyatka State University! The teachers are really competent, and we also practice the language in the student dormitory - I met a lot of friends there, and they help me improve my Russian.


Josue Lopez


Electrotechnical faculty

I’ve always dreamt of coming to a Russian University. At first I had no idea which University to choose, but then I came to Kirov for an internship - to learn the Russian language and culture – and after five months I decided to stay here: I liked the city, I’ve got friends here. I thought it would be difficult to enroll, but the University staff helped me prepare the documents and go through all the formalities. Of course, it was difficult to study at first, but gradually my Russian language became better, and everything became easier for me. Teachers always help me: if I don't understand anything, they will definitely explain.

You are surrounded by nice people who are always ready to help: specialists of the International Office, the Dean's office and a lot of caring students.


Diyora Umarkhodjaeva


Faculty of technology, engineering and design

Within two years of studying in Russia, thanks to Vyatka State University I managed to participate in numerous forums and competitions! It's hard to imagine my student life at another university. Here I can fully realize myself: I am a member of the Student Council of my faculty, I am a volunteer and I take part in cultural and sports events organization. Here, our university offers quite a variety of events especially for foreign students.
