In Shaninka we have an open “lecture – student” communication. At our university we have no lectures at all, classes are seminars, discussions. Then there are high requirements to academic progress. It creates a competitive environment, and it is very cool to be a part of it. And finally, here we have interesting disciplines. Every time I come to the classes, I learn something new, just every day! You can easily see that all lecturers are very prepared people: it will surely take time when they will not be able to teach us anything new, as it happens sometimes in Russian universities.
