I have enjoyed my studies immensely! I want the contacts established at the summer school to be strong and fruitful. Absolute psychological comfort and benevolence were created. I was once again convinced that I had not made a mistake in my choice. A very big plus for the fact that there were students of different ages. Thus, everyone had the opportunity to compare their knowledge and work with other guys. Everything was well thought out, classes flew by unnoticed, because it was rich and really interesting, FOR which the entire team of the school thank you very MUCH!

I liked that there were not only Russian lectors. And those lectures in English were actually engaging and informative, not just for the record.

I want to thank the organizers for making such a great summer school! I took part in such event for the first time, however by its end I was so used to lectures, working, project team meetings, that saying goodbye was really hard. I hope that I will be able to participate next year.
