RUDN University opens a Resource Center at the Al-Asseya school, Syria

November 12, a delegation of the Russian Ministry of Education and Science and Larisa Efremova, Vice-Rector for International Affairs of RUDN University, opened the Resource Center for Russian Education on the basis of the private school “Al-Asseya” in Damascus, Syrian Arab Republic.

Leading experts from Russian universities will teach physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology and Russian.

“The Al-Asseya school has branches throughout Syria, where more than 1,600 children study. We have already met schoolchildren who plan to study at leading Russian universities.

The Resource Center is a kind of teaching guidance school for the preparation of Syrian teachers for high-quality teaching of physics, chemistry, mathematics, biology and the Russian language.

In the future, RUDN University with the Syrian Ministry of Education will conduct a broader training program for the advanced training of Syrian teachers,” said Larisa Efremova.

The purpose of the Resource Center is to attract and prepare talented foreign applicants to study at Russian universities, teach core subjects to students of specialized senior classes, increase the prestige of Russian higher education in the world, and increase the number of talented foreign students.
