Mattia Franceschi, Italy

What a fantastic experience!

Hello, i am Mattia Franceschi, i am from Italy and i study material engineering at the university of Padova. I have been in Magnitogorsk from september 2018 to February 2019 for preparing my master degree thesis, concernig metallurgy. My experience in this university has been fantastic, i found very nice people who helped my to organize my trip and during the entire period in Magnitogorsk. I found also very good professors who followed me during my research period and for learning Russian language. In this city i found friend and i discovered a fantastic culture, i suggest to all to come there!

University of Padova has got a lot of agreements with universities all around the world, and hundreds of students are involved in the Erasmus Project every year. There are also other agreements with Russia and with scholarships, but only with Moscow as destinations (and, as far as I know, Tomsk). These agreements are made especially for students of russian language department, and for students of engineering or other disciplines, be part of them is almost impossible. Also there are agreements with single departments, but without scholarships for students.

Matthieu Zechel, France

Hello. My name is Matthieu and I am a French student at the Technical Institute at the Jean Monnet University in Saint-Etienne. I have studied at the Electrical Engineering Department of NMSTU for 3 months with 5 other French friends.

I have been really impressed with the warm welcome given to us by the teachers and the students, who are very kind and nice, and they all helped us during our learning program. The teachers who we met are all highly competent and speak good English or French.

We have met a lot of Russian people, and created amazing friendships. My only regret is that the level of my Russian language is not very good, but I could improve it during this exchange.

Finally, I would like to thank our teachers, all the team of NMSTU and the International Office, who did an amazing job that gave us an opportunity to travel to Magnitogorsk to study.

I will recommend this exchange program to other students because it was very interesting for us.

Merci beaucoup et a bientot en France ou en Russie !

My name is Antoine. I'm a student of the University of Saint-Etienne in France. I study Electrical and Engineering Computing and I have spent 3 months here (Feb to May 2017) as an ERASMUS student.
This mobility has allowed me to discover a new culture, new people. I want to say that you (Russian people) are very friendly and openminded, and that's great!
I was also impressed by the quality and the level of your teaching.
I want to say Thank you to all the teachers who helped us during this 3 months. A big Thank you to Anastasia who has done an incredible job for us, and my last thanks to the Russian student who has helped us too.

Now, I will return to France and tell about my experience here to motivate some other French students to come to NMSTU.
