International students are actively involved in social life
Lobachevsky University’s international life is gaining momentum after a break caused by coronavirus restrictions. A number of international student events took place during this spring season on the UNN campus: the UNN sports relay "Sport. Knowledge. Power”, the international youth festival of Chinese culture, the Navruz spring festival, the Lobachevsky UniverSum festival of cultures, and numerous other events. In addition, the UNN Asia-Pacific Centre opened this spring.
International students have also been stepping up their participation in international and national events.
At the end of March, for example, international students from Tajikistan Faizullo Yakubov and Abubakr Gaforzoda took part in the international conference "Current Issues of Security in Central Asia" organised at Belgorod State National Research University with the support and assistance of the Gorchakov Foundation and the Russian International Students Association.
Faizullo Yakubov was invited by the conference as a moderator. The conference sections dealt with security issues in Central Asian countries as well as Russia's security.
