When summer is near, students begin preparing for their exams and tests with more zeal, so that after that they were free to go travelling to other cities or countries, tan and swim, walk with their friends, and just relax. South Ural State University’s international students shared their grand plans for the summer.
The students’ preferences vary: some are planning on travelling across Europe, some are going home, but some students are happy to remain in Chelyabinsk to spend an unforgettable summer at Olimp Sports and Recreation Camp.
We invite our university’s scientific groups to take part in the contest aiming at attracting young talented postdoc researchers to the university.
