The enrolment at Strelka Institute of Media, Architecture and Design for the academic year of 2011-2012 is finished. This year, 43 students will enter the doors of the Institute. Most of the students come from Russian cities; two people will fly from Milan and another two — from Riga. There are students who will have to travel even farther: three people will come from New York, Bogota, and the Chinese city Ji’an. The longest journey from home to Strelka, however, lies before the new student from Melbourne, who will have to fly the distance of 14,447 km. Most of the students specialize in architecture; there are also young experts in philosophy, cultural studies, and psychology. Congratulations to the new students! We wish them success and creativity in the new academic year.
