    a student of a Saratov university

    Student B. You are a British student who has come to Saratov on a student exchange program. You are talking to a student of a Saratov university about the system of transportation in your countries/cities.

    Above is a situation for students to make up a dialogue (paired work). Is the indefinite article correctly used here (if we don't know which particular university the student is from)? Is the instruction as a whole correct?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    If there is more than one university in Saratov, "a" is correct.
