Exchange with Kindai University (Japan)
9 September 2019

Anna Anisimova and Victoria Kolesnikova return to Dubna after studying in Japan.

The students of the third course have gained a lot of impressions and professional experience. Exchange programs are available to those students of the 3-5 course who learn well and speak English.

The students share their impressions of Japan:

Victoria Kolesnikova:

“Japan is a country full of contrasts. Unbelievable cutting-edge technologies intertwine with ancient culture, fueled by the desire to preserve traditions and pass them on to new generations. We were lucky to have been there and have seen it with our own eyes. Our visit was very interesting and fruitful.

Our main goal was to study at Kindai University, situated in one of the largest Japanese cities – Osaka. The administration of the University offered us to choose subjects that we wanted to study. There were both specialty-oriented and general subjects. I have chosen some that weren’t directly connected with my profession but would help me find my future career. This was the right choice. I have gained knowledge that already proves helpful when studying in Dubna. We, the exchange students, were noted to be responsible, hard working and fast learning. In this regard, the faculty asked us about the education process in Russia. We were happy to share our experience of studying in Dubna State University.

We thank Dubna State University for the opportunity to visit a country with a completely different culture and study with a full immersion in the English language”.

Anna Anisimova:

“Last spring we had the luck to participate in a student exchange program and go to Japan. This is an amazing country, where everything is new and unusual for us. It was incredibly interesting to study and work on projects with people of different cultures. We gained a lot of experience!

We were studying in Osaka, in the famous high technology Kindai University, where attention is paid to natural and human sciences, business and international cooperation. It was a great pleasure to be there for a whole semester.

The professors said that we were responsible and skilled and that we were serious about our future professions. The faculty made note of our skills that we demonstrated when learning Japanese and speaking English – these skills we had learned at the Department of Linguistics of Dubna State University. We also took part in student projects and conferences. We participated in open lessons, helping Japanese students learn Russian. We were chosen to give an interview to the representatives of the Ministry of Education of Japan – we talked about the possibilities that higher education gives us, and about the way we see future relations between Russia and Japan.

I hope that during our visit we were able to show the qualities of the Russian student, especially that of Dubna State University”.
