Здравствуйте! My name is Alexandre, I am 20 and I come from Aix-en-Provence, in the south of France. I study international relations, political sciences, economics and geopolitics at Sciences Po Aix.
I have always been interested in Russia and its role in the world. This is why I have chosen Moscou and the RANEPA as my destination for my Erasmus.
Later, I would like to work in international relations with a focus on Russia. I am looking forward to learn more about it and discover this amazing country this semester!

Russia has always interested me because of its incredible average of cultural and ethnic groups and the paper which has played over the world’s history. In addition, one of the topics I preferred the most about international affairs is geopolitics so, in which place is better to learn about it than Russia? Language, culture, territory and people. Those are the different things I would like to discover during my exchange here in IPACS and Moscow.
