«I am an Indian, lower middle class guy and passionate to do something good with my life. Before coming here I was working as a software develpoer in Delhi,India and I was looking for right masters program to grow my data analysis skills. Finally, I found a good program here. I arrived Akademgorodok in September 2018 and It was quit beautiful those days. I met lots of new people here and I found people very happening and helping. It was my coldest winter of my life but in fact I truly enjoyed it, because actually I love cold. In start, it was little bit hard to adopt the cold but now it is ok. Living a new culture is quite exciting experience for me. Program is quit good as I expected and faculty members of program are good, understanding and helping. I am very happy to be a part of NSU and Big Data Analytics program.»
«In the context of where l come from (Southern Africa, Zimbabwe) Data Analytics training is not yet developed. Qualified human resource to facilitate training in this field is nearly close to unavailable at the moment of my writting, and this is mainly due to the fact that the field is just emerging globally. NSU comes as an opportunity up for grabs for students in my region, to launch the field and its benefits to various sectors of industry. NSU gives the opportunity for students to specialise their skills into the field of Data analytics through courses in programming, business analysis, artificial intelligence, machine learning e.t.c. When most students think data analytics is just a programming program, NSU coarses help students understand the foundations and trends in the field and how the various courses link. The motto for the university is true "We will not make you smarter, we'll teach you how to think", this program will help you think like a data analytics professional (business analyst, data scientist or data engineer)»
«As you know Russia has high-level basic science, such as mathematics, physics, chemistry, space science, and atomics. For several decades, Korea focused on manufacturing industry so that lack of information about basic science and I realized its importance. Anyway, if someone wants to do something basic always important and make it easy to deal with. If international students enter the NSU, they can learn the basics in the place at the same time enhance your ability for a prospective project.»
«This program has an applications based approach and will teach you to use the most recent tools and methods available to the data science industry. The course can be theoretical or practical depending on the students inclination since electives offer the choice of theoretical and practical courses. This course helps people transition from conventional courses like IT and Mathematics to the more lucrative Data Science field where their existing skills can be utilised and new skills can be developed.»
«The school has a good ranking, the cost of studying abroad is not expensive, and you can experience the true exotic style.»
«Big Data at NSU is ideal for international students because here you will live a wonderful 2 year experience with the best academic atmosphere and top grade accommodations. Akademgorodok is amazing, it is a small academic and entrepreneur city, full of research institutes, start-ups, nature and forests that is why sometimes is called the "Silicon Forest".»

Many foreigners associate Siberia with a very harsh climate. That is only partly true. The weather in Novosibirsk is not as extreme as it is usually expected. The city is located in Western Siberia which is characterized by a milder climate. The Altai Mountains in the South protect the region of Novosibirsk and creates a microclimate: winter is not as tough as in neighboring regions and the air is not too dry. Novosibirsk is sunny throughout the year and there are not many rainy days.
Winter is usually very sunny and fluffy snow is everywhere from December to March. Don’t forget to practice some winter sports! The average winter temperature is -15 ° C, and the coldest period lasts approximately 2-3 weeks in January and February, when the temperature drops to -30-35 ° C. However, because of the dry climate, it does not feel as cold x as it might seem and it is easy to protect yourself by wearing warm clothes.
Summer is usually hot in Novosibirsk. The average daily temperature in July, the warmest month, is +25 ° C, and there are sometimes hot periods up to + 30 /+ 35 ° C. Water in the rivers and in the artificial sea (the “Ob Sea”) gets warm so locals enjoy spending time at the beach and swimming.
