Demetrio Atanasov, Bulgaria
My name is Demetrio Atanasov and I’m Bulgarian, who studied and lived in London for a while. But I decided to go on an ‘adventure’ to Russia, as I wasn’t too keen on staying in the UK. Currently I study Medicine, in year one, at IKBFU. The things I like most about the university are some of the courses and the way they are being taught. I can say that Anatomy and Biology (and not only) are being taught by world-class teachers and lessons are ideally structured. Besides this the student life is amazing. At first, I was nervous that students in here would not happen to accept me, as I am a foreigner, but in fact everybody in my course have always been welcoming and open-hearted. When I was choosing the university I’d apply to IKBFU stroke me with its impressive history, achievements and well-recognition across Europe, as the university itself cooperates with some of the best European seats of education. The city of Kaliningrad also happened to be a stunning location for my studies. It’s a beautiful city, mixing Russian and Prussian architecture, making it unique. Since my arrival, my expectations have been met and everything is going very well.
