Meet Nora Kalinskij: An international student with a passion for exploring Russian-European relations

Nora Kalinskij was born in Lithuania and grew up in Paris. She is in her third year studying Human Social and Political Sciences at St John’s College and focuses on the Politics and International Relations subject “track” of her course.

In this short film Nora tells us about her interest in Russian-European relations and how her language skills enable her to view current affairs from different cultural perspectives. She explains why as a prospective student she chose to apply to St John’s and how the College has helped her to pursue her interests in languages and Russian foreign policy with summer schools and courses.

Nora also talks about the student society she started at St John’s – the Culture Hub – which aims to bring students from the diverse College community together to explore their different perspectives on world issues and events.
