For the First Year Students

Hi, freshman!

Today your first week of study at IIR is ending! And so today our project is coming to the end (but that's not for sure).
 
That is why we decided to give you a couple of tips from students and graduates of the IIR that have passed the entire "initiation ceremony" in our walls. Let your student life be as exciting as those who are quoted here!

М.: "Тут не так, як про наш інститут говорять! Якщо ти вже всередині, «наш», то зрозумієш, про що я. Тут немає тих стереотипів, про які ходять легенди. 
Зараз ІМВ це майданчик, з якого можна просто втілювати свої мрії в реальність. Головне - не боятись починати щось нове, використовувати можливості знайомств, погоджуватись (хоча б на початку) на більшість ініціатив і самому бути активним. 
ІМВ може дати тобі набагато більше, ніж красивий диплом, знання і мови. Можливості - ось що цінно. Не втрачай їй, використовуй і кайфуй від того, як трансформується твоє життя "

В.: "Загалом інститут у нас хороший. Вчитися місцями і часом цікаво. Єдиний, напевно, мінус, це цвяхи. 
Ті, шо стричать з парт в наших аудиторіях, і ті, шо забивають твої калєгі в домовину твоєї оцінки.
Тому шо боротьба за бал на семінарі є, без перебільшень, «вольной»: і вільна вона здебільшого від будь-яких правил. Відповідає людей мало, але по багато слів кожен (і далеко не завжди по суті). Тому готуйся до того, шо доведеться купувати багато одягу і ще більше заспокійливого чаю.
Якшо не любиш чай, моя тобі порада: забий на ті цвяхи. Толковий семінарист завжди побачить знання, а якшо в останнього проблеми з зором - у тебе є модулі (про те, як вони перевіряються - тема для окремої розмови)."

А.: "Получить образование в КИМО, почти тоже самое, что закончить Хогвардс! Лестницы, тут, конечно не двигаются, но поток людей, ходящих по ним, точно может отнести тебя не в ту аудиторию. Да и после длинных ночей подготовки к экзаменам, не то, что портреты разговаривают, но и стены танцуют. 
Готовься к семинарам, как к урокам по зельеварению, документы сдавай, как список заклинаний (на память, эмоционально и с уверенностью). 
Маховика времени тут не найти, поэтому лучше сразу не совершать ошибок - на четвертый этаж подниматься только в деловом стиле, ну или с мантией-невидимкой, на крайний случай.
Подружись с вахтой, если не хочешь отхватить от нее за забытые пропуск и студенческий (ни один магл не пройдет).
Лови возможности, как снитчи, - оно того стоит.                  
И да, тайная комната пока еще не была открыта, но у тебя есть все шансы."

Д.: "Не сприймайте нічого близько до серця, особливо бали, окрім нашого Весняного балу.
Якщо у вас багато ідей, а ресурси ваші обмежені, все одно ідіть у студраду-разом щось придумаємо.
Готуй сані з літа, а гарні стосунки з вахтою з самого заїзду у гуртожиток."

Good luck, friend!

Hi, freshman!

Continuing the theme of extracurricular life, we want to introduce you to our favorite cultural events. This is only a small fraction of what's going on at the Institute. 
So, our list of "must-visit":
  • Art exhibitions in the Hall Art Gallery. Did you know that the hall of our Institute is a part-time picture gallery? Take a look - and you will see that everyone can touch the works of young Ukrainian artists (both in direct and in the figurative sense)! Exhibitions are regularly updated, so getting a portion of inspiration before classes can be almost round the clock :)
  • A career day is an event where demand and supply meet in one place. On this day, you can chat with representatives of various organizations, ask them about the conditions / requirements for employment, or even schedule an internship in a dreamed company.
  • "Rainbow of the countries" - the favorite entertainment of all IIR students without exception! It is a holiday of cultures and traditions, during which each course represents a separate country: its national dishes, clothes, history and customs, - completing all this with modern vision and creativity. Break-dance of Arabian sheikhs or Spanish bullfighting? Why not?
  • "Mr. Diplomat" is a competition traditionally timed to celebrate the Day of the Diplomat on December 22nd. The objectives of the competition are to test the participants for the qualities and knowledge necessary for professional success in the diplomatic career: speaking skills, intelligence, etiquette, knowledge of history and foreign languages. So we advise you to be in the role of a contestant, or at least once to become a spectator of this show.
  • "Miss of IIR" is officially the most elegant event of the year. 10 girls of different courses and specialties fight for the title of the first lady of the Institute, demonstrating their beauty and talents. As part of the competition, photo and video, training defiles and, finally, a grand final show. However, it is better to see once than to hear a hundred times!
  • "IIR Charity Ball" - a new tradition that really fascinated at first sight. This is a classic Viennese ball devoted to the theme of spring and flowers. Classical music from the live orchestra, a buffet table with a glass of champagne, inviting stars and unforgettable emotions from debutant performances awaited guests. We advise you to visit teh ball this spring and spin on an unforgettable waltz with your partner!

Hopefully, it will now be easier for you to focus on the number of events at the beginning of the year. Till next time!

Hi, freshman!

If you have the impression that the institute's life consists only of classes and exams, we have to cheer you up: not of learning alone!

In fact, the daily life of the IIR is much more diverse than you can imagine: meeting with ambassadors, cinema shows, debates, games, videos ... In short, 16 student organizations and 4 departments of the Student Council will certainly not let you get bored during the year!

You can become a member of any of them, turning to the chairman, during the self-government fair, or by filling in an introductory questionnaire from the club - just follow the announcements during the year!

Hi, freshman!

No, of course, we do not hint at the fact that you won't remember everyone from the first time, but why risk it? Below, we will attach references to the professors of all departments of the Institute of International Relations, as well as to the administration and their contacts. Know the faces of those who will be around for 4 years!

#I_am_freshman_at_the_IIR

 

Hi, freshman!

 

We continue to introduce you to student life, and today we will tell about the DIFFERENT KINDS OF STUDYING MONITORING, because we are sure that you hear words such as a test and an exam every now and then.

 

That's why read our post!

A TEST is a preliminary assessment of the student's knowledge. The test does not have an estimate on the national scale. For his result the student is credited to the score in the "passed" or "not passed", that is, a mark about whether the student's knowledge of the "three" or not. On the same day there may be several tests. According to the Bologna assessment system, the student still gets points on the 100-point scale (from 20 to 40) and they are added to your final score (up to 60 - unsatisfactory, 60-74 satisfactory, 75-89 - well, 90- 100 - excellent).

Tests are carried out over during the week, when other classes continue. The test can be in the form of a test, a  game, ticket responses or project protection.

AN EXAM is the final assessment of a student's knowledge of a particular discipline. It is conducted during the exam session. In one day there should be no more than one exam.

There are given a few days to prepare for the exam. Students in 2-4 weeks ahead are given a list of questions, which will then be divided into examination tickets - up to three questions in each. Before the examinations, teachers arrange consultations, during which they give explanations on the issues. It is advisable to come and ask questions.
The exam is usually conducted in the form of an oral or written answering to the questions. In addition to questions about the theory, the ticket might have a practical task: the analysis of a real case or problem solving. The teacher can also ask additional questions beyond the ticket.
 
The exam results are evaluated according to the national scale, where the highest score is "excellent", lower - "unsatisfactory", and the Bologna 100-point scale (40 points). If the student received an "unsatisfactory" exam, then he must come for re-examination. 
 
So everything is not very difficult, as you see!
 
Good luck today and on the first week of studying!
 
 

#I_am_freshman_at_the_IIR

 

Hi, freshman!

Are you ready to come next week to the best university in the country? We try to do as much as possible so that you do not worry and ready for the first days of study.

We remember how it was simple at school: you only had lessons, on which the information was explained, and the material was fixed practically.

However, at the Institute, there is a DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CLASSES. 

Therefore, we offer you today to familiarize yourself with what lectures  seminars are.

Lecture (from the Latin "Lectio" - reading) - a form of instruction, when the teacher orally teaches (reads) a significant volume of educational material. A lecture is a teacher's monologue, which can be accompanied by slides or visual display on a board. In this case, the main task of the listeners is to receive and memorize (we also recommend to note) new information.

Seminar (from the Latin "Seminarium" - the school) is a thoughtful and prepared dialogue on a given topic. Seminars are held to repeat and consolidate already familiar material. At the seminar, a teacher discusses with the students the most relevant issues of the topic, emphasizes the intricacies and nuances, and clarifies problematic points.

Also, the seminars are the classes at which you will receive grades for further (final) evaluation. A teacher also tells the topic of the next seminar so that you can prepare and respond.

 

So, the basics are explained, and we are waiting for you on Monday at 11:00!

#I_am_freshman_at_the_IIR

 

Hi, freshman!

As you already know, there are no diaries in the Institute, to which you definitely got used to in 11 years of schooling.  No, that does not mean that you do not have to do a homework (believe there will be enough of it).  However, now you are faced with the schedule of the IIR, not very understandable at first glance.

We prepared a small instruction so that you don't ask yourself HOW TO UNDERSTAND THE IIR SCHEDULE??

Let's start with the fact that you can find the schedule HERE.

Vertical blue lines divide the schedule on the years of study, horizontal on days of the week. So, you should look only on the first column so far!

If you look at the instruction attached to the post, you can analyze the shedule for Monday with us.

№1 - Day of the week
№2 - Time of the lecture
№3 - Division of lectures (mostly seminars) by acadmic groups (follow the column of your academic group)
№4 - Division of lectures by language groups (follow the column of your language group) - only lectures on foreign languages
№5 - Classes written on the entire length of the line- lectures. Students of the whole course should be present.
№6 - Classes, written on the length of certain academic groups - seminars to be attended by students of certain academic groups.
№7 - Classes, whose schedule is changed by weeks (upper / lower) according to their location on the schedule. You can find out the week on the bulletin board near your department.
№8 - Auditorium number
№9 - Your teacher

We hope that we were able to explain you the basics so that you are ready for the first day of study.
 

We wish you success and are waiting for you on September 3rd at 11:00 in the Large Assembly Hall of the IIR!

#I_am_freshman_at_the_IIR
