Minsk State Linguistic University reviews

Some of the teachers are good but the administration of the Russian as a foreign language school treats students as a cash grab. But even worse they helped another foreign student basically steal $ 1250 from me. The other student was a scoundrel but the university is even worse because they used the excuse of bureaucracy to hold the money from me until the contract expired. Then they used the excuse of expired contract to not pay me the money. I have a baby about to be born to me and my girlfriend and basically they robbed me. Do not trust the people who run this university .I tried to make them aware of the deadline on the contract 3 times before it expired and they ignored me and said it would be fine they would pay me. In the end they stole from me.
Thank you for your feedback, sorry to hear that happened to you.
