Ales Bousi (Czech Republic): «Looking back at the time I spent in TPU (9 months in 2006), I must say it was a really good investment. Compared to my previous studies in western european and north american countries, I must say that this trip to Russia was a major turnpoint in my life, memories of which keep coming back to me so often, as if it was yesterday and it literally changed my life forever. From the educational point of view, more than 70% of my courses were individual, one-to-one with my teacher. I have learned so much from these courses ... never before I had such a deep understanding of the subject as well as thorough answers to all my questions. On the top of that, all lab courses were also individual and together with my teacher, I would choose which experiments to undertake next time. This is something that has never happened to me before. Moreover, I also attended a 3 week outdoor course of geology in the republic of Khakassia, visiting the mongolian steppe region with dozens of different mining sites and processing plants, in one word again - amazing experience. When it comes to cultural experience, these russian ways allowed me to understand all the history of czech-russian relations as well as todays international politics from a totally different point of view. Also, meeting other students from around the world has brought a lot of fun and interesting insights. Businesswise, speaking fluent russian is a major asset when searching for a job, since all major industrial companies in CZ heavily export into the former USSR countries. Just speaking fluent russian alone has proven worth of our trip to Tomsk for me and all my friends, because in these days all of us have jobs with a huge profit from this knowledge. Apart from my studies, me and my friends went to lake Baikal for a few days. Later, we rode the horses all across the Altay mountains. The raw nature and pristine adventure in exotic places far away from anything you can see in Europe. And the Tomsk student and night life! The cocktail of emotions, love, romance for you to discover. To sum up, studies at TPU were a thrill of a lifetime for us all. No word can describe the intensity of this whole experience. All I can say is I just wish I could do this once again ... »
