Visit to Hulunbeier University, China
The Head of the International Relations Center of Belgorod State University Mr. Evgeniy Kapustin and the Executive Director of the Eastern European University Association Mr. Bogdan Voronovskiy visited Hulunbeier University during their stay in China. Hulunbeier university is the biggest and the most influential university in the Inner Mongolia (a region in China). Therefore the EEUA team considered it a great opportunity to meet up with the representatives of this university to strengthen the positions of the Russian and Ukrainian higher educational markets in China. Therefore the initial goal of the visit was to discuss the possibility of mutual collaboration in different spheres. As a result of the negotiations the agreement between Belgorod State University and Hulunbeier University was achieved. In terms of the agreement double diploma programmes will be launched for a range of specialties, as well as Russian language internships at Belgorod State University for students of the Pedagogical faculty at Hulunbeier University. Drafts of treaties have already been prepared and will soon be signed by the rectors of the universities. Apparently, a new era of cooperation between Russian and Ukrainian universities and Chinese universities began! We look forward to developinf relations with our Chinese partners and thank them for their hearty welcome, an interesting talk about the infrastructure and the facilities of the university and a sightseeing tour around the city of Heylar.
