Course recommendations
Getting to know the country was for both the teachers as for us the most important thing during this course. So even some fellow-students who went to Wladiwostok for 3 weeks graduated (ok, they got a B instead of an A).

Classical education - outdated approaches

Philology
Overall
University provides a good theoretical basis in many subjects, but as far as I know, in most of programs you wouldn't be taught the latest information about a field. In my deprtment most of professors were quite conservative and used traditional teacheing approaches and technics, which is not very effective for people of my age. The good thing about it though, that all of us had to do a lot of self-education and also think out of the box to get good career opportunities after this education.
