Hi Bro, Most the Masters courses in the best Universities in Moscow and Saint Petersburg are taught in English and you don't need to do the Russian language preparatory program. You only need that if your course will be taught in Russian language. HSE is one of the best universities in Russia, and they have the best English Language Masters programs.

The lockdown period in Russia has been extended to at least June 1st. This is because the cases have been rising at very fast rate. We currently have over 262,000 cases in Russia and around 2,400 deaths. It's been a crazy past few weeks.

We still take classes and tests online now. We had a test today on Economic Statistics. 100 questions in 70 mins. Omo I was still at number 37 before time was up. I don't know how the lecturer thought we could possibly answer 100 difficult questions in 70 minutes. The test is 10% of our grade and I'm still upset about it.

I recently visited my friends in the Dacha in a village outside Saint Petersburg. It's technically still in Saint Petersburg, but it's called Leningrad Oblast. I spent an entire day with them, exploring the woods, hiking, and just enjoying nature. I also made a cool interview video which I've posted on my channel. So please check it out if you're interested.

It's been really difficult for me to sleep at night these days because right now the sunrises as early as 3am which means once it's 3 in the morning, the sun is out and everywhere becomes bright. Here in Russia, during the winter, we usually don't see up to 4 hours of daylight so we basically have around 20 hours of darkness during the winter.

While in Spring and Summer time, the sunsets around 10pm and rises around 3am. Around June or July, we will literary have white nights when the entire Saint Petersburg goes for weeks without darkness, even at night, everywhere will be bright. I still haven't gotten used to this.

First two pictures were taking around 9pm and the third was around 10pm this is what I was describing above.

Last picture was me riding a bicycle to the woods with my friends.

I hope you guys are staying safe and healthy? Have a lovely weekend Y'all

Legend has it that the reason for so is because the sun always love to see such beauty and serenity in those developed countries and so, it doesn't want to go and when it goes, it always wants to come back. Unlike here in Africa that there's nothing to see. Lol


Just kidding tho

Happy new month my people! I hope you guys are doing good and are in good health?

I'm sorry for the lack of updates... I've been busy with work.

I'm trying to work as much as I can so I'll be able to save something tangible before school resumes in a month's time.

My first summer job this year came from a stranger... I just randomly sent him a message and he hooked me up with a remote Microsoft Customer Care support job, I combine that with menial jobs and also photography when ever I have a paid event to shoot and shooting Videos for my channel. I've been really inundated with work these past few weeks so I don't have enough or mental strength to update my thread.

I'll just post a few pics

First two pictures, at my friend's house with his family to celebrate his birthday.
Third picture, having a cocktail with a friend after shooting a video for my channel.

I had the experience of white night in Moscow and Saint Petersburg during the World Cup in 2018. Looking out from the window at 3am you will think is 8am. Saints Petersburg is a beautiful place.

@Tochi, I've been following this thread right from you started the one of "Living in Moscow". After much deliberation I decided to focus on Russia instead of America and Germany. You've been doing great

What I'll like to ask you is, can one get job as a students and can one stay after studies?
