UNN delegation pays a working visit to the Republic of Uzbekistan
An official delegation of Lobachevsky University took part in the International Educational Exhibition "Education and Profession" held in Uzbekistan.
During the exhibition in Tashkent, a new format of UNN's work with university entrants was successfully tested for the first time: entrance examinations were held on-site. Lobachevsky University was the only participating institution to use this format, ensuring that the university was extremely popular with the exhibition visitors. More than 120 school students completed assignments in mathematics, chemistry, physics, Russian language, biology, literature and computer science in order to become students of Lobachevsky University in the future.
A working meeting with the directors of local schools and lyceums was held in the city of Fergana. During the talks, bilateral cooperation between UNN and each of the 14 local schools was discussed. Possible forms of cooperation included open lectures, implementation of joint career guidance, educational and youth projects, and participation of Fergana school students in Olympiads and competitions organised by Lobachevsky University.
During the Fergana stage of the 23rd International Educational Exhibition "Education and Profession", which was held at the Fergana Youth Palace, more than 130 persons visited the UNN booth. Of great interest were the programmes in fundamental and clinical medicine, IT, economics, philology, pedagogy, international relations and law offered by Lobachevsky University. Many of the school students, 9th and 10th graders, are planning to take part in our Future Researchers - Future of Science Olympiad, which will have its international track in Uzbekistan this autumn.
Konstantin Kemaev, Deputy Vice-Rector of Lobachevsky University, and Natalia Lartseva, Specialist of the International Cooperation Office, also visited Fergana University, where they had a working meeting with Islomzhon Zokirov, Vice-Rector for Research, and Sharof Shukhratov, Vice-Rector for International Cooperation, and discussed a draft "road map" for developing cooperation in the coming years. Many points of common interest were found in this discussion. The Uzbek partners were particularly interested in the joint Bachelor programmes in the 3+1 format (in technical and economic fields) and the Master programmes in the 1+1 format in the humanities.
