The international students have come to Tyumen as part of UT’s agreement with the Ural Federal University on the provision of network educational programs. The program is overseen by Dmitriy Skipin, Elena Yarkova, Anastasiya Vylegzhanina, Ruzilya Nasyrova, teachers at the Institute of Finance and Economics.
On their first day in Tyumen the guests from Mexico were taken on a guided tour of the city, during which they learned about its history. They were also given a tour of UT campus and told about the University’s educational TV channel “Eurasion” and Tyumen State University’s international projects.
“The students were especially interested in the “STEP in Russian Energy: Society, Technology, Environment, Policy (Management of the Russian energy sector”) supplementary course for foreigners, held at the University since March 2016″, says D. Skipin, Acting Head of Economic Security, Accounting, Analysis and Auditing Department. “This is not our first intake of international students under our network cooperation with UrFU. Their predecessors gave the “STEP” program rave reviews and our new Mexican students are also interested in participating in such projects”.
During their internship, the Mexican students aim to carry out research into the topics of their masters dissertations.
