The Head of the Department of the International Activity of the CFU named after V.I. Vernadskiy Alexander Mashchenko stated about the event.
The similar interviews with candidates from Syria will be conducted next week.
“The selection of candidates is also implemented by the group of experts from the Rossotrudnichestvo, Embassy of Russia and range of universities. Selected applicants have the right to list several universities they want to enter. The final decision on what university the candidates will be sent to is made by the Rossotrudnichestvo. Some of the candidates, who apply for getting an education in Russia, noted the Crimean Federal University as a priority higher education institution for getting an education. We hope we will get students from Lebanon”, — Head of the Department of the International Activity of the Crimean Federal University Alexander Mashchenko told.
