This time `Travel Office` visited a graduate of the Department of Germanic Philology Galyna Tymoshchuk. Thus, students of the first-fourth years of studying accompanied by their lecturers Olena Medvid, Alla Krasulia and Olena Nazarenko quickly filled the room, as they wanted to hear about ample perspectives for them from SumDU.

Six months ago, the possibility of distance learning frightened students. "How will lectures and practical classes be conducted?", "How will we write module works?", "How will we pass exams?", and "How to defend a thesis in such conditions?" - they wondered. As it turned out, there was no reason to worry.
#SumDU_translators along with lecturers completed the previous academic year and started a new one. So we asked them what they think about this year. And that's what they say about it.

Olha Shumenko, Associate Professor at the Department of Germanic Philology together with her British colleagues under the auspices of the UK Government has been actively involved in the Her Majesty Government Project for almost six months now, which has many years of multi-agency experience and represents all aspects of training.
