South Ural State University facilitates the adaptation of its international students to the conditions which are new for them. Big part in this process is played by engaging them into extracurricular activities, sports and recreation. Many students who come from abroad take the opportunity to master winter sports in the cold season.
South Ural State University was visited by a delegation from Southwest Forestry University (China) intended to discuss prospects of cooperation with SUSU.
The delegation included Vice-President of Southwest Forestry University, Xu Hui, Director of International Exchange and Cooperation Office, Yang Song, and Dean of the Institute of Mechanical Engineering, Yang Yongfa.
South Ural State University (SUSU) is located on the border of the European and Asian parts of Russia, in the city of Chelyabinsk. The convenient location and good academic traditions have led to more than 2000 international students from 52 countries studying in our university today. What academic fields are popular among students from Uzbekistan? Are university graduates in demand in the international labour market? Olga Yaroshenko, Vice-Rector for International Relations at SUSU, spoke about this with a correspondent from Sputnik.
The SUSU Pushkin Institute research, education, and coordination centre holds events for students from China aimed at promoting Russian and education in Russia. Students were very interested in this form of education.
