'You can become part of a high-level education'

Anna Shpektor (research assistant in the Centre for Cognition and Decision Making and student at the Faculty of Mechanics and Mathematics at Moscow State University) this summer participated in the Yale Summer Session. She tells about her experience.

What were the main criteria for choosing the program of summer education? Why did you choose the USA for study?

I wanted to extend my background in psychology and acquire more experience abroad. Last year I went to Cambridge, UK for the summer. This year I decided to continue studying abroad and I chose the United States. This gave me an opportunity to experience different educational systems. I chose Yale University which is an Ivy League University, which offers a large number of courses in psychology. I took two of them: “Nature, Nurture, & Human Development” and “Madness & Civilization”.

How did you find a financial aid?

I asked several finance companies that provided funds for students to travel abroad. As a result, I received funding from the foundation "Intek".

What was the process of your study? Tell us about your typical day at Yale.

During the summer, Yale offers the exact same courses for undergraduate students as they do during the school year. Summer session involves a lot of Yale students because they can receive the full credit for these courses. As a result you can become part of a high-level education. However, the summer session is almost 3 times shorter and as a result it is quite intense. A typical day consists of a three-hour class and a large amount of independent coursework. In the evenings local students often arrange activities for us. Over the weekend there were organized trips to cities such as Boston, New York. We also had some trips to several beaches.

What are the most important skills you get from the course?

In the weeks spent in America, I learned how far I can push myself. The experience was very intense yet topics were extremely interesting and I felt that the teachers were very experienced. For example, I had a class about behavioral genetics. From beginning to end, we progressed from the basics by extracting DNA from strawberries, and then we finished the course by following up on the recently published data.

Please provide some advice for students who are interested in studying abroad.

Almost all universities have web-sites dedicated to review teachers and courses. I would advise everyone to research information provided by current university students before choosing which courses to participate within the university. I mistakenly chose only to look for official information provided by the university. As a result, one course was very interesting, but the other course was not compatible with my expectations. Overall, it was an amazing experience to study at Yale University.
