EEUA at Education fair in Shenyang, China
February 15, 2014, EEUA representative in China participated in Shenyang International Education Fair held in the biggest city in the north-western part of China, the administrative centre of the Liaoning province. This exhibition is one of the series of four exhibitions organized by the company Liaoning Huanxing Economic-Trade Culture & Education Co., LTD (SAS).
The event was attended by the representatives of HE institutions from Japan, Denmark, the USA, Canada and other countries. EEUA was the only organization representing Russian universities and this was the first time Russian universities took part in this kind of event which has proved to be quite a success.
Although the largest event of this event organizer is annually held in June, this exhibition scored really high attendance and was visited by many prospective students who were mainly interested in Musical field, Engineering and Management courses. In most cases Chinese students prefer to study in Russia in the Russian language so first they take 1 year Preparatory language course. The students were eager to know the details about language courses, tuition fees, admission procedure, visa requirements etc.
EEUA rep also visited the office of Liaoning Huanxing Economic-Trade Culture & Education Co., LTD (SAS), conducted training on using EEUA online agent account system, answered numerous questions about education in Russia (living conditions, part-time jobs, degree recognition, climate etc.) and discussed the Agreement with Eastern European University Association. Apart from that the parties also discussed the topical issues of Chinese student recruitment, in particular Russian language exam, and the education interests of contemporary students.
