Academic exchange is a unique opportunity to try to get a feel of education in another country and get acquainted with its traditions. However, I don’t want to write this article as a typical success story, there’s enough of it on the web.

A buddy is like your first friend in Russia who helps you with adjusting to campus life, making new friends, and building relationships with people who can help you navigate your academic and social experiences.


  • Physical Education Around the World

    As a Russian student I can confirm that PE classes in our schools are considered optional by kids. Fake notes from the doctor, absence at the lessons, and "I forgot my uniform" are very common excuses. What about the rest of the world?
