RUDN experience in the internationalization of education is presented at the EAIE Conference and Exhibition 2018 in Switzerland
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.
