Buddy Program

UTMN also provides international students with the assistance of Buddies — local students who provide full assistance in the process of adapting to the academic environment at UTMN and Russian life in general.
On the day of arrival, the Buddy will meet the international student at the airport (or at the railway), help to get settled into the dormitory and lead an excursion around the campus. During the first year of their studies, the international students may count on their Buddies and them Buddies any questions.
