Export of higher education was on the agenda of the seminar. By 2025, the number of international students has to reach 750,000 (to compare, in 2017 there are 280,000 international students)
«We have to seriously consider realization of the Russian education export project, elaborated by the Russian government. The main challenge is the quality of international students enrollment and the number of international professors that has to comprise 10,2% from the total faculty number», said RUDN Rector V.Filippov.
One of the tasks of the project ins improving the legislative base and facilitating life of international students in terms of legal aspects. Another issue is increasing attractiveness of educational programs and promoting Russian higher education brand.
In 2017, the RF Ministry of education and science signed new agreements with Morocco, Slovakia, Kazakhstan, Burkina Faso, Philippines, Columbia and Korea. In 2018, it is planned to sign agreements with Abkhazia, Angola, Eritrea, Nicaragua and Spain.
We were not expecting the results we got this day, 40 students who love Russian language took the first step to learn Russian and they did great on their first day of classes! Tomorrow two more groups will start learning Russian without leaving their home countries, using the digital technologies of our Faculty!
“In mathematics, there are several ways to achieve a result — I always wonder how a student will solve a problem. And problems in computer science give more freedom of solutions, therefore computer science develops creative thinking ”, says Stanislav Strashnov, author of the modules "Mathematics“ and ”Informatics" of the Digital Preparatory Faculty of RUDN University.
The academic year at RUDN University traditionally begins on September 1. This is the first odd week of training. Classes will be held in two formats: face-to-face — in university classrooms and remotely.
