Education In 2008 I entered the eldest university of the Udmurt Republic “Udmurt State University”.
Iâ€™ve chosen the Faculty of Foreign Languages for Specific Purposes because of itâ€™s international environment and opportunity to develop myself in the field of linguistics, the field which was almost unknown for me in the high school.

After 2 years of hard work I was awarded the university scholarship and in July 2013 I gained the Bachelor diploma in Linguistics with G.P.A. 4,8 (max is 5,0) which was the highest G.P.A. in my group.
