Holding up the traditions

e5Every year Bonch welcomes students from different countries of the world. It has become a good tradition that every year students from our partner-university Epitech (France) come to study at our university. During the academic year they attend classes equally with the students of SUT.

Apart from studying, our foreign students also get acquainted with the cultural values of our country and our city. As part of this cultural program the students from Epitech visited the Hermitage. It is one of the most interesting museums of the world, which houses the history of the world cultural heritage.

Our students were accompanied by the chief specialist of the international department A. Zavalina and our volunteers. Marina and Sasha, our volunteer students, told them a lot of interesting facts about the exhibits in the museum. This visit excited French students and made them want to continue studying Russian culture.
