When children leave their home, parents always worry about them. Especially when they leave for a long period, like six-seven years, to completely unfamiliar country far away.
In much the same way the parents of 33 Indian students worried last autumn, when the latter decided to obtain medical education at ZSMU and arrived in Zaporizhya. However, most of them were glad for their children. Our University has a high reputation in the Republic of India, especially at the places, where our graduates work as doctors and pharmacists. Moreover, many former graduates bring their children to study at the university. For some Indian families this is a good reason to visit the city of their youth again, and walk through the corridors of the University, sit in familiar audiences.
Such exciting moments have recently been experienced by the parents of students who have started studying at the ZSMU in the current academic year. They came to our University from far-away India to get acquainted with their children's studying and living conditions, even to make sure whether Ukraine and ZSMU are as good as they were told about it. The results surpassed all their expectations: the Indian guests were friendly welcomed and shown all the buildings where they children study, live and rest. The parents were pleasantly impressed by the fact how in what a warm and peaceful environment their children spend time in addition to acquiring an excellent knowledge. The guests assured that the student camp was an absolute security zone.
Foreign students studying at the first semester told about how they liked to be here, and how affordable, but, at the same time, of high quality and universally accepted the education provided by Zaporizhzhia State Medical University is. Indian senior students are glad as well to meet new students at their community, because, in their opinion, the younger generation plays a key role in strengthening India's educational, innovative, and socio-economic structure.
Together, we will undoubtedly be able to strengthen the warm and friendly relations between Ukraine and the Republic of India, as well as build a better common future for next generations.
