"The University has done a lot of work in the period from June to August in supporting the international students who had to spend their summer holidays in Russia due to the pandemic. It is important for us to support our students who cannot see their love ones in these hard times. About 200 IKBFU students took part in cultural, sport and leisure events. The university has also created a unique educational environment for the international students, for instance, Medical students from India had a chance to prepare for the NExT qualification exam online, also, there were free Russian language courses organized for anyone interested in improving the language proficiency. We plan to continue carrying on the free courses in autumn and we are always glad to welcome new participants. The IKBFU International Office and the Welcome Center spared no effort in making this summer as educational and joyful for students of different cultures as possible. And it was a great pleasure to us to receive positive feedback from the students".
