We are going to provide you with information about how your first day is going to be..
Firstly, you are in Tomsk! Congratulations!
Upon arrival, an employee of TPU will pick you up at the airport, help you with accommodation in the dormitory, and tell you the time and place that you will meet with your buddy (usually it is the first floor of your dormitory at 2 P.M.).
Now you can relax after a long flight.
At 2 P.M. your Russian buddy will wait for you at the first floor of your dormitory to take you to the International office of TPU. Don’t forget your documents: passport, visa, documents from your University, etc.
In the International office your passport will be taken for registration.
Then you will go to the 19th building where you will be given a talk about the rules of staying and living in Russia.
The most important things that you should do with your Russian buddy will be dealt with on the first day.
If you want to connect to the Internet in your dormitory, you should go to the Cyber Center. N.B: It is neccessary to find out the MAC-address of your computer beforehand.
