RUDN Regional cluster in Zambia
Members of the delegation met RUDN students from Zambia and had working meetings with RUDN Rector V.Filippov. RUDN and the Zambian Ministry of education signed an Agreement on forming the first RUDN regional cluster in Zambia on the base of the leading universities - Copperbelt university, Zambian University, Sunningdale university and others. RUDN Center will hold intellectual contests and Olympiads, teach Russian and other subjects training future students for further studies in Russia. Teaching will be available not only to Zambian citizens but citizens of 8 neighboring countries as well.
During the visit the delegation will see the Medical Institute simulation center, Mission Control Center of the Institute of Space Technologies and laboratories of the Agrarian and Technological Institute. The visit will also include working meetings in the Zambian Embassy and Saint Petersburg and will last till 15 October.
Cluster approach unites organizations of the regions. Educational institutions, state services, industrial companies and the private sector are given one communication platform to implement regional projects including training highly qualified staff for the countries’ economies. The first cluster in South Africa with the center in Zambia is interesting because Zambia is the only country in the region boarding on 8 countries and traditionally realizing cluster approach due to strategically important geographical position.
Leading Zambian universities are positive about joining efforts and having a constructive dialogue. Authorities of the University of Zambia and Sunningdale have expressed their readiness to join the Regional cluster.
The World Legislative Congress of the International Federation of Translators (FIT-IFT) officially approved the membership of RUDN University.
5 students, 3 universities, 1 goal — to get the most out of your studies. The material focuses on the Institute of Law students who were able to complete internships at the partner universities of RUDN University. Some of them have already returned with new impressions and useful experience, others are abroad and continue to study. We talked with the students and found out how the adaptation to the new university was going on, what made studying different and how the internship helped defend their thesis.
