Receipt stories


Alexandra Krivolapova (Yekaterinburg)

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

First contacted the Global Ambassador on the recommendation of friends, almost two years ago. Then there was the task - to prepare for the delivery of TOEFL. In a small group under the leadership of Alla Eduardovna Chekanova, for about three months, knowledge of English was pumped and skills for passing the exam were developed. As a result, the exam was successfully passed, but I didn’t want to leave either the English, the teacher, or the center. At the end of the course, it was decided to continue further studies and contact 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 magistracy of the Milan Polytechnic University.

Thanks to the entire Global Ambassador team, and especially, thanks to Evgenia Bryukhanova for regular help and support in matters related to the preparation of a package of documents intended for a university, as well as in the further steps that will be required for every student who wishes to study abroad - collecting documents necessary for departure and enrollment.
