16.09.2016

TSU signed a memorandum of understanding with a world university that took 13th place in the ranking of QS World University Rankings 2015/16 - Nanyang Technological University (Singapore). Already, this winter the Russian Language School for 20 students from the partner university will take place in Tomsk.

- Our cooperation with Nanyang Technological University began in March 2014 at a convention QS WorldClass, where we met with the Rector and the industrial partner of TSU Alexander Avstrievskih (Artlife) at the invitation of Kevin Downing. We met with the vice president of the university Professor Er Meng Hwa - says Artyom Rykun, TSU Vice-Rector for International Affairs. - This is a strong modern university, and I think that we will collaborate in many areas of science and education.

According to the Vice-Rector, it is planned to organize mutual training, academic exchanges, educational programmes, and collaboration in the areas of science, such as joint research projects.

In 2016, students from 37 countries have submitted documents to TSU. For the first time, entrants from Jordan, Ghana, and Antigua and Barbuda have enrolled at TSU. Applicants from Asia (China, Laos, Indonesia, Mongolia, India, Bangladesh, and others) and Europe (Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and others) have traditionally had a high interest in our university. For the second year in a row, graduates from Arab countries such as Iraq are choosing TSU. In addition, citizens of Nigeria, Pakistan, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, and Bulgaria have decided to study at one of the prestigious universities in Russia.
