About Learning Experience on Exchange Program
Student of the Institute of Mathematics and Information Technologies Eldar Vershinin told about exchange program at the University of Eastern Finland during the spring semester 2021.
"During the spring semester 2021, I was lucky to participate in exchange program with the University of Eastern Finland (UEF), campus Joensuu and Kuopio. I would like to pay attention to the differences in approaches to the study process – student can choose any courses he was interested in, gaining the necessary number of credits (ECTS) a semester is compulsory.
I have obtained insightful experience in writing scientific works remotely, got acquainted with various tools that might be useful for studies in future.
Another aspect I would like to draw attention to is the language. The key benefit of the program was English practice. I communicated with guys from Greece, Spain, Italy, France, Czech Republic, Germany, Poland, Africa, South Korea and Finland. Certainly, everyone had different level of English, anyway, there were no problems in finding a common language and topic for discussion, each student felt free to contact.
As for the accommodation, there was a wide range of accommodation options.
I have made up my mind, the participation in exchange programs provides great opportunity to obtain new knowledge, level up foreign language skills".
