The $2k-$4k, you mean for an academic session?? Quite cheap though...I checked for the department of mathematics, but couldn't see information regarding admission and fees

Freshemzy:Most Nigerian students in Russia are medical students but most of their schools are around Siberia region and I unfortunately don't know much about schools there.

Yesterday was really fun, B took me to red square and we had lots of fun, exploring and visiting various museums around the square. Red square is one of the most iconic place Russia and thousands of visitors go to red square every day.
It was -9 degrees yesterday and at some point when I was taking pictures of the square,my hand got so cold and I wasn't able to click the shutter again.
For more than 3 minutes I could not feel my hands anymore and I literary felt like my hands were amputated.
Asides the freezing cold, yesterday was a really memorable and magical day, B is such a darling and we spent the whole evening holding hands and playing in the square. She doesn't speak English yet so communication is still a bit difficult for us cos some times I run out of words, my Russian is still basic but thank God for google and yandex translators.
I must admit I always feel a bit shy whenever we are walking in the streets together but she doesn't really mind and is always playing and holding me and I think I'm slowly getting used to not caring about all the eyes staring at us whenever we are taking a walk.

In as much as I'm willing to answer any questions and be as helpful as I can, I really do not want to turn this thread into a question and answer or Russian visa enquiry thread, there is already a thread for that from a few years back on the travel section but if you must ask, I'd also prefer you guys post any questions you have on here instead of mailing me privately, if it's something I can answer, I'll answer it on here so it would also serve as reference and help other prospective students. I'll try and post the link of the other thread if I find it again cos it helped me.
I haven't really been here long enough to know this but I think getting Estonia visa here is the easiest and fastest and getting other European country visa is easier than from Nigeria as long as you have the necessary docs.
Most Nigerians studying medicine are in Siberia and other far cities and I'm new and haven't been able to get acquainted with them but will def try and reach out to them and get a contact for you.
Like I said earlier, jobs are not readily available and combining study and work is very difficult but it can be done and people are doing it. About RP, No idea yet, I just arrived here recently I never tey for here so I never know all these things.
I assume you'd be shooting mostly landscapes and people right? I'll recommend an entry level dslr Nikon D5200 with the 18-55 kit lens and the 50mm 1.8 prime lens would be perfect for landscapes(kit lens) and getting beautiful bokeh when shooting people (50mm) The combo would set you back under $400
The Camera I'm using right now is a 6 year old Canon 7D, before that I used the D5100 and I will strongly recommend the Nikon D5200 if you are on a budget and the D7300 with the lens I mentioned if you are not on a budget. If money no be problem lol then go for a full frame the Canon 5d mark IV and the 24-70 f2.8 mark ii is every serious photographers dream combo for all round shooting (landscapes, portraits etc.)

It's getting colder and colder these days, it snowed today and everywhere was slippery.
I don't have winter boots yet and I was advised to get one because the snow has some salts and they damage ordinary shoes so I need to get a new shoe specifically made for winter. As I no get money, I have started searching online for second hand winter shoes but if I don't find I'll have to manage the shoes I have till the winter discount sales begin next week.
I haven't really been feeling too well; I've had cough and catarrh for the past week.
Mucus are kinda normal here and everyone is always snorting in mucus when outside but these past few weeks mine has been excessive and it's really annoying because you can't just blow your nose on the floor like Nigeria because everywhere is clean and no gutters so I always have to wait till I get to the restroom before I can blow my phlegm.
My cough and catarrh got worse and my Vietnamese classmate gave me one very strong essential balm so I put a little inside hot water, covered my head with towel and inhaled the vapor from the hot water and I swear that thing worked like magic cos it cleared my noise instantly. This was what my dad usually did for us when we were kids so I quickly thought about it and put that essential balm to good use
I'm increasingly starting to feel like the days are shorter here in Russia. I always start off my day with a list of things to do each day etc. and since I arrived here it has always been difficult to complete each task I have on my to do list because I always run out of time.
Wake up, go to class, eat do assignment before you know it's already 1am and you have to try and get some sleep before preparing for your 9am class.
I'm really not happy because I haven't been able to make out some time to start working on an app idea I've had for a while and I'd hate to wake up one day and see someone else already beat me to it.
There is so much going on right now and 24 hours isn't enough for me and I hate always going to bed knowing that I wasn't able to accomplish all I set out to for the day.
I really miss the days I had lots of free time in my hand, to be honest if you have free time right now better start using that time to do something useful instead of waiting and procrastinating.
Put that free time to use right now and do something productive because a time will come when you're realize you don't have that luxury anymore.
I woke up to a really beautiful message yesterday morning from B, she said she's been thinking about me every min and she wasn't able to sleep cos she kept thinking about us and she really wants to see me soon cos she can't wait till Saturday when I told her I would have time for us to see again.
I missed her a lot too so I told her we'd see in the evening when I come back from class.
She hasn't been to my dormitory before because I stay in a tiny dorm with 2 other roommates and she said she would feel uncomfortable having my roommates around so we decided to see in her place since her parents wouldn't come back from work till much later. She lives with her parents and her house isn't far from my dorm but unfortunately her dad was home early so she texted me and we decided to hangout in the park in front of my dorm.
When she arrived, we had a long warm hug for a few mins and kept telling one another how much we've missed ourselves.
Then we played in the park, I carried her and spun her round and round and we had lots of fun in the park.
We got so cold and decided to go to my room in the dorm cos it was freezing outside and luckily when we got to my room none of my roommates were around so we had some privacy to talk.
I spent most of the time introducing her to Nigerian music, started with mad over you by Runtown. Simi's Joromi etc and she's already in love with Nigerian music.
She said I make her feel how no one has ever made her feel before, her past relationships have been with Russian guys and guys here are always serious and I'm someone who plays a lot especially when I like someone, so she said she likes how impulsive and full of energy I am and she's finally getting to experience the kind of love she thought only happens in movies.
We held each other and slow danced to some cool John Legend and Adele then called it a night.
To be honest I don fall yakata for this girl, I'm so happy we both feel the same way about each other cos if I start saying how she makes me feel no be today e go end I swear. I call her Olanma and yesterday I was teaching her how to say Olanma and it was so so hilarious; D
When she got home last night, she texted me and told me the most beautiful moment she's had recently was when she finished asking me some questions about how I feel about her, and I looked her in the eyes and reassured her I genuinely like her then brought her in for a hug then kissed her forehead.
She said when I kissed her forehead, it was the best feeling ever and she felt so safe and so loved and didn't know if too cry or something because she felt so good in a way she hasn't felt before and it was the most beautiful thing ever and she still thinks about it and she misses how I whisper sweet things in her ears and kiss her neck when we were slow dancing.
She told me she's the only child of her parents and I just found out she told her parents and friends that I'm just a new acquaintance that wants to teach her English.
I'm actually legit feeling sad cos I already know her parents won't approve of our relationship cos they'd want her to marry a Russian man obviously and continue their family line. Whatever to, meeting her has been the best thing that happened to me so far in Moscow and even if it ends today, I'd forever cherish the little time we spent together. But I hope it doesn’t cos I really don’t want this to end.
About to have dinner, study then get some sleep.
See you guys later.
