Alexandra Krivolapova (Yekaterinburg)

Politecnico di Milano (Italy), Master: Faculty of Architecture and Design

I first applied to the Global Ambassador on the recommendation of friends, almost two years ago. Then the task was to prepare for the TOEFL. In a small group under the leadership of Alla Eduardovna Chekanova, knowledge of English was pumped over for about three months and skills for passing the exam were developed. As a result, the exam was successfully passed, however, I did not want to part with either English, or the teacher, or the center. At the end of the course, it was decided to continue studying further, and to apply to the center with the aim of preparing documents for admission to an Italian university.

The center’s team quickly and competently drafted and translated all the necessary documents within the specified time frame. I would like to note the skill of the center in the preparation of motivation letters. After re-reading their own motivation letter, it seemed that the facts set forth by you have acquired exactly the sound that is necessary in order to interest the admissions committee of the chosen university.

The result of this joint fruitful work was my admission to the master's program at the Milan Polytechnic University.

Thanks to the entire Global Ambassador team, and especially thanks to Evgenia Bryukhanova for her regular help and support in matters related to both the preparation of a package of documents intended for the university, and in the further steps that each student wishing to study abroad will have to take - collecting the documents necessary for departure and enrollment.
