EEUA at EDUEXPO, Colombia
April 01-15, 2014, EEUA representative traveled to Latin America in order to participate in the largest education fair in Latin America – EDUEXPOS. The 1st part of the fair was held in Colombia on April 01-03, 2014, and was visited by more than 1500 students and their parents looking for the options of doing Bachelor or Master degrees overseas.
The fair was held 3 days - 2 days in the capital city Bogota and 1 day in Bucaramanga. In both cities the students came in bulk to EEUA stand to pose questions and enroll for the courses in Russia. The students were thrilled with the opportunities offered at Russian state universities due to the government support of the universities and were eager to get as much information about Russian education as possible. EEUA gradually acquainted the students with the admission procedure and the courses available at Russian state universities. The students were particularly impressed with worldwide recognition of degrees and the affordable tuition fees which start from just USD 1400 per year.
The students were interested in Postgrado, Maestria and Pregrado in Russia. Among the most demanded “carreras” were Medicine, Engineering, MBA, Economics, Mining, Aviation and Biology. The cities where the Colombians would like to study were mostly restricted to Moscow and Saint Petersburg, however quite a number of students with less funds expressed their willingness to study in such regional cities like Ryazan, Samara and Belgorod.
We are sure that many pupils who visited the fairs will become prospective students of Russian universities either this year or next year.
EEUA is ready to help all interested Colombian students to come to Russia and enter the Russian university of their dreams!
