Nicholas Ourusoff is no stranger to the USTU community. He is an American lecturer of Russian origin who teaches at the department of computer science, information systems and technologies of the university.
For the first time in the history of USTU there is finally a chance to get to know Finland, land of heavy music, silence, ice hockey and salmiakki. With the beginning of school year, the first Finnish club was launched on 7th September, 2017, at 5 pm at the international department of USTU (office 321/1 "A").
Every time while writing an article about any event we used to describe it the way we see it. This time we have decided to change the format and let our intern Siiri share her impressions about the Day of Knowledge at USTU with you. This is what she would like to tell you:
The Icelandic Ministry of Education, Science and Culture awards annually a number of scholarships for studies in Icelandic as a second language at the University of Iceland, Reykjavík. The scholarship program is administrated by the Árni Magnússon Institute for Icelandic Studies. Approximately 15 scholarships are available for the period from September 1st 2018 to April 30th 2019.
Today, on 15th August, 2017, a Finnish citizen, Söyrinki Siiri Meri arrived in Ukhta. For three months (August-November, 2017) she will be trained at the international department of USTU.
In January 2017, the international department prepared and sent an application for a grant to the Finnish National Agency for Education CIMO to attract an intern from Finland. In May 2017, the application was approved, which resulted in the arrival of an intern.
