Students' feedback  Sathish Kumar, 3rd Year student, General Medicine.

One of the top colleges in the Far East region of Russia. Many students from different countries, especially from India and Brazil, are studying here. Best hostel facility in Russia. Medical school is attached along with the multi-specialty hospital. Students get a lot of opportunities to participate in the internship program. I got an opportunity to participate in the BRICS internship program. Nice coaching from well experienced professors. Well equipped laboratory facilities. Students can get a huge exposure from the university campus and makes the best out of them.

For my bachelor studies I chose to major in two areas – Food Safety and Management of Environmental Resources (with special focus on Agricultural Resources). I made this decision because as a future specialist I wanted to be able to respond to the challenges imposed on agricultural food production by the modern societies and changing conditions. This underlines how agriculture can respond to those challenges now and in the future, protecting the natural resources but not decreasing the quality and quantity of the food produced. Thus, by combining these two fields, the possibility to study in a very promising and newly developing area which is Agri-Food Biotechnology, opened up. This applied science is quite rare to find as a discipline in universities in Russia, as it is quite modern, so I was very excited when I came across at it at the Far Eastern Federal University. Russia has been my primary choice for continuing my education which is why without a doubt I chose to travel across the world from my home country in Southeast Europe to the Far East of Russia – I made my education and my further development as a specialist my priority.

When I started studying it became immediately clear that all the professors and teaching assistants assigned to work with me are exquisite, immensely knowledgeable and well apt professionals which has been one of the major highlights of my master studies. They are also very willing to work and collaborate with me on a scientific level, giving me the possibility to create my own research work, having thereby their support and contribution. But more than that, they all take personal interest in me if I am doing fine and coping well so far away from home. Their genuine care and concern contributes to my overall wellbeing here in Vladivostok. Another major positive aspect is the fact that I am given many possibilities for practical work covering all aspects: production and applied research. The practical experience is, I believe, crucial for any young specialist. The campus and the facilities are astonishing which makes student life quite comfortable.
