Hi, my name is Alyssa, I'm from the United States. I'm studying at Novosibirsk State University (NSU) for the summer in the Russian Summer Language Program. I chose NSU because I wanted an original Russian experience. When searching for universities in Russia, NSU was the best option. It is highly ranked and well known. Programs in St. Petersburg and Moscow are much more expensive and here the Russian language program gives so many opportunities to immerse yourself in the culture and befriend Russian students. I love being surrounded by the forest and my time here has been unforgettable

Living and studying at Akademgorodok was a very good experience. Novosibirsk State University provided us with good classes, excellent teachers and, above all things, a lot of contact with Russian native speakers. I would recommend the experience.

CIEP's (Center for international educational programs) help was useful from the preparation of documents (visa,contract, etc) to the assistance it gave me to get used to life in NSU and Akademgorodok. The Russian language courses were very interesting and helped me improve quickly my proficiency in this language. The teachers are professional and they helped me to be more confident in Russian. The small-group classes were perfect for that purpose. CIEP also organizes interesting events (excursions in Novosibirsk and Akademgorodok) which provide interesting informations for those who want to understand better Siberian's life and History.
