Tasty Food Feud
1Studying and living far from your family is an experiment, examination and experience all in one. One of the points is to test yourself as cooks, as you have to prepare the food yourself and every day. During whole November all the students who live in the university dormitories could prove their independency from homemade food and show their culinary talents to their friends and neighbors.




The Preparatory Faculty of PetrSU Opens its Doors to International Students
5In the end of November a welcoming ceremony for the first group of prospective students from Jordan took place at the Preparatory Faculty.




Russians Rarely Debate!
MatildaIt only seems that all pupils and students are the same. The international students of Petrozavodsk State University studying medicine, the Russian language and engineering, describe the specifics of national education in foreign countries, from Sudan to Belgium. We’ve learned what the foreign students think of the bells, grades and our educational system.




New Economy - New Opportunities
2The 7th Youth Economic Forum “New Economy - New Opportunities” was held in Petrozavodsk on November 12-14, 2015. Being a discussion platform, it gathered over 200 young scientists and specialists dealing with theoretical and practical issues of social and economic development. They came from different regions of the Russian Federation and foreign countries. Four exchange students of PetrSU from Finland and Germany attended the Forum’s general plenary, a round table dealing with cross-border cooperation, and a lecture about the paradoxes of the Russian labor market. The two of them shared their impressions with us.




We Came to Study at PetrSU
SakuraHow can the Russian language unite a Japanese and a Chinese? Why would Americans study the Russian character? What Russian literature is read in the Czech Republic? Our international students tell a bit about that.




Time to Play!
2All the students study hard during the working days and even on Saturdays, but still there is some time to have fun and to communicate with their friends, groupmates and the other dormitory neighbours. And there are lots of traditional Russian games to spend great time together!




They Want to Help People
1From the first of September, six students from Zambia, a country in southern Africa, study at the Institute of Medicine of PetrSU. The young people have come to PetrSU to study within the quota established by the Government of the Russian Federation for foreign students.




Discovering the World History through Rare Books
4Recently the international students visited the Scientific Library of PetrSU that contains around 2 million documents, journals, books in 18 languages and the rare books of XVI-XIX cc. Those who came are currently studying as exchange students at the faculties though the acquaintance with the university library was useful for them.




International Students at the International Autumn School
4The 3rd International Autumn School “Peace and Conflict Transformation in Northern Europe” was held at Petrozavodsk State University on 14-17 October, 2015. The School was organized in the frameworks of the project “Barents Peace Education Network”, which establishes a sustainable network between universities in the Barents region with the purpose of developing and promoting peace education.
This year the students and lecturers from Petrozavodsk, Archangelsk, Murmansk and their colleagues from Norway, Germany and Finland took part in the lectures and workshops.




Teaching English Learning English
1In the beginning of October Katie Stewart, postgraduate student of Indiana University Bloomington, attended the English language class of PetrSU second-year sociology students.
