Despite the coronavirus pandemic and the restrictions related thereto, the RTU MIREA Institute of International Education continues to take an active part in the activities aimed to attract foreign nationals to study at RTU MIREA. Thus, in October and November, the staff of the Institute of International Education took part in a series of educational events, such as I’m going to study in Russia! and To Acquire Knowledge We Go to Russia, organized on the initiative of the Federal Agency for the Commonwealth of Independent States, Compatriots Living Abroad, and the International Humanitarian Cooperation (Rossotrudnichestvo).
The events were aimed to promote Russian education and the achievements of the Russian science, and to expand cooperation between educational institutions of partner countries.
The I’m going to study in Russia project enveloped countries such as Turkey, India, Mongolia, Laos and Thailand. To Acquire Knowledge We Go to Russia event was held in Serbia, Slovenia, Romania, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina. In total, representatives of 38 Russian universities were involved in the project. The total number of attendees at the entire cycle of exhibitions exceeded seven thousand people.
I.S. Solunova, Deputy First Vice-Rector, and E.A. Slezkina, Deputy Director of the Institute of International Education, made presentations informing future applicants about the infrastructure of the University and the unique opportunities that RTU MIREA offers to its students, as well as educational programs and admission specifics for foreign nationals. Issues relating to admission, entrance examinations, visa support, adaptation to the new way of life and the accomodation of foreign students in Russia evoked the greatest interest among international participants willing to get education in Russia.
