MADI to further develop International Programs

On July 30, MADI discussed the strategic directions for the development of the university's international activity as part of the university development program

Acting Rector Andrey Keller, Vice-Rector for International Relations Rustam Mirzaev, Head of International Cooperation Department Viktor Blagodatskikh, Dean of the Preparatory Faculty for Foreign Citizens Andrey Novikov, Director of the Center for Training Foreign Citizens Yekaterina Gagarina, as well as heads and representatives of related departments and services took part in the discussion.

The participants discussed the key tools for strengthening the positions of the university in the global scientific and educational system, looked into the specifics of working with foreign students, analyzed the progress of the “coronavirus crisis” admissions, and studied the prospects for the implementation of international projects and agreements.

Important topics of discussion were the interaction of the Center for Training Foreign Citizens with other departments, increasing students’ performance and introducing motivation tools for all parties in the educational process, including motivation to continue education at the next level (e.g. master's programs). The meeting stressed the need to develop new educational programs for foreign students, as well as English-language educational programs.

The meeting decided to resume systematic interaction with state authorities, NGOs and public organizations to strengthen international relations and expand the admission of foreign students. It was also decided to run a project for the development of the material and technical facilities to create convenient learning environment for foreign students. In addition, a system of social services and mentoring will be developed and phased in.

This was the second meeting of the administration with the "international" departments of MADI in July. Previously, experts discussed the specifics of organizing work at the Preparatory Faculty, analyzed passport and visa support and migration registration of foreign citizens, and also outlined the ways for development of international projects in science and technology.
