In the run-up to the admission campaign 2021, Mordovia State University took part in the II International Educational Exhibition "Prospective student - 2021", held in the Republic of Kyrgyzstan. The event was organized by the Center for the Promotion of the Russian Language and Culture under the Non-profit organization "Russian without Borders". The exhibition had two venues: Bishkek and Osh. The agenda also included career guidance events in secondary schools of the Republic in the above cities, as well as in the Zhalal-Abad region. Other Russian universities attending the exhibition venues: Nizhnevartovsk State University, I.N. Ulyanov Chuvash State University, Udmurt State University, etc.
Participation in the exhibition allowed us to successfully present the educational and scientific potential of our University, to communicate directly with prospective students and their parents. Prospective applicants in return had a better insight into academic programs offered by our University, rules of admission of applicants from Kyrgyzstan.
The event envisaged meetings with school principals and the teaching staff of the Osh region.
The University was represented by Elena A. Naumkina, Deputy Head of the International Relations Office, and Sergey G. Kostryukov, Head of the Chair of Organic Chemistry.
The exhibition revealed that the interests of Kyrgyz school leavers are diverse ranging from information technology and electronics, construction engineering and architecture, economics, law, and tourism, to medicine. Our University is prepared for challenges and keen to administer to the learning requests of prospective applicants. A pleasant reminder of our University was a set of educational materials on the Russian language and country studies granted to the senior learners of Bishkek secondary schools.
The event received wide media coverage by republican mass media, including the news channel "Ala-To 24" and the newspaper "KoutBilim".
