I hope that this good tradition will be further developed’, says Olga Berzin, Professor at the Department of Criminal Law and Criminal Procedure.

‘It’s the fourth time I’ve taken part in the Russian-Chinese summer school, and each time I learn something new, I develop my skills and meet new people. This year a lot of students from different parts of China came to the school, but all they share one thing - they study at the same university. I have spent a year at that university, and it brings back a lot of pleasant memories, therefore I was glad to talk to these students, some of whom I knew already, and I showed them our beautiful city. The students really liked staying here; I think they will miss local life and our delicious, healthy food. I hope to see them again!’
Zhanna Shabanova, 3rd-year student of the Faculty of Law, HSE Nizhny Novgorod
‘The Russian-Chinese school is a great opportunity to learn a lot of interesting and shared things about culture and education in Russia and China, to share our knowledge of Russian with Chinese students and make new friends. I was Assistant to the Teacher of Russian language and I'm very glad that after the classes organized with my help many students decided to continue studying Russian in China. I hope that next year I will also participate in this summer school and be able to go to China to study Chinese culture, history and law.’
