A dozen ILS students from South Korea spent their autumn holidays most memorably in Moscow, accompanied by ILS teachers Valentina Kovaleva, Yulia Filatova and Lee Heilee. At Moscow State University they visited the Institute for Asian and African Countries, as well as the university’s Kolmogorov Study and Scientific Center-Boarding School.
The program in Russia’s capital also included an evening excursion around the city, a trip to Kolomensk, a stroll around Red Square, a visit to the Kremlin, and an afternoon at the Tretyakov Art Gallery.
The biggest surprise of the ILS students’ trip was a get-together with Sim Eonjin, a 2017 ILS graduate who now studies at the MSU’s Institute for Asian and African Countries.
“Fields trips around Russia that include visits to historical sites is one of the many forms of learning offered to international students at ILS,” notes ILS Principal Olga Shevchenko. Visiting one of Russia’s leading universities increases their understanding of the higher educational opportunities available in the country, particularly as many of them know Russian quite well.”
