My experience in Moscow is something l will forever remember in my educational ladder and my life in general. Moscow, its architectural design and other recreational facilities are something you will never get bored of if you are new in this magnificent environment. Just to mention a few: large museums, metro stations, shopping centres, and Soviet history. Moscow is something that you must experience for yourself.
I am also proud member of this great and noble institution, Sechenov University.. The lectures are highly qualified and excellent, the Faculty members are very competent and very caring and overall best conducive environment with a highly class of sophisticated lecture halls that makes teaching and learning very easy and comfortable. As a student of the master’s program of Intercultural Communication, I am delighted to be part of this special course and such a unique faculty which is headed by a very high renowned person, professor Irina Markovina who is known to be one of the giants of her field in Russia.
Studying this MA in Intercultural Communication program has given me more knowledge about different cultures and how to relate with different people from different cultures backgrounds around the globe. l am a real testimony of this great institution, Sechenov University, and this unique program which is fully run in English language.

"The contents of this program have gone far beyond my expectations, to put at my disposal tools that help me to participate successfully in conversations at the international level. Also, the introduction to the Russian Ethno-psycholinguistics is equipping me with techniques to achieve higher translation and interpretation competences."
"I have been living in Moscow, Russia, for the past four months and I am still not done visiting the monuments in the city. The blend of old and new architectures in the city makes it a museum in the open sky. I am so passionate about the architecture in the country that imposes itself wherever I find myself."
"Taking such a program gives anyone who desires a peaceful world, in which individuals from each of the four corners can appreciate each other viewpoints and collaborate effectively, the right tools to do so.."
