    Even after 4 months of studying at WUT, I can still say that I am very happy I chose to come in Timișoara. The courses are very interesting and useful, and I believe they will help me in my future studies and career. Moreover, the professors are very open minded, which is very important for a foreign student. The Department of International Relations was always helpful and indeed it helped me a lot whenever I had issues regarding documents or regarding my studies.

        I first came to West University of Timișoara in October 2014, for a month of practice. My first impression of WUT was positive and as soon as I got back home in Russia, I made the decision to return in Timișoara and continue my education at WUT, because here I have found the Master programme I would like to continue. The courses are very interesting and useful, and the academic staff is very attentive with each student. I am comfortable here and I am very happy I have chosen WUT.
