RUDN is participant of the exhibition session and a series of expert workshops at EAIE Conference and Exhibition 2018. Peoples' Friendship University of Russia is the Russian leader in internationalization: representatives of 155 countries study here, and the share of foreign students is more than 27%. It has an elaborate system for selecting talented students, adapting freshmen, teaching foreigners and supporting the best students. By 2020, RUDN is planning to increase the share of foreign teachers to 10.2%.
The university is ready to share the best practices, but the main goals of the delegation are to expand the network of foreign partners, increase the number of programs of inclusive training and double diplomas, and find new opportunities for scientific cooperation with universities from the tops of world ratings. Thus, meetings with representatives of the European Association for International Education for the development of academic exchange of students for the Erasmus + project are planned.
On the first day the exhibition stand was visited by Sergey Smirnov, first secretary of the Russian embassy in Switzerland. RUDN experts met with representatives of the best universities in South Africa, China, France, Turkey and Ireland.
RUDN representatives represent other leading universities at EAIE Conference and Exhibition 2018 – among delegates of the Polytechnic School of France (École Polytechnique, Paris) is Kristina Lutsik, international PR specialist, graduate of the Peoples’ Friendship University.
The conference of the European Association for International Education (EAIE Conference and Exhibition) is one of the largest annual world exhibitions and conferences devoted to issues of higher education. In 2018, it is held in Geneva (Switzerland) from 11 to 14 September. For details: https://www.eaie.org/geneva.html

“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.
