The Annual Educational Fair “Russian Education - 2018” with the participation of leading Russian universities, jointly organised by the Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC) in New Delhi and Rus Education, was held on May 27, 2018.
This was the 19th edition of the Russian Educational Fair in India. Keeping in mind the increasing interest of Indian students in Russian education, the Fair was aimed at informing students about the availability of various options available in Russian universities. The Fair enabled students to interact directly with the faculty and international representatives of the universities. The Fair wass also aimed at creating awareness on the quality yet highly subsidized engineering and medical programmes offered in Russian higher educational institutions. The universities participated in the Fair are well-known across the world.
Mr. Fedor Rozovskiy, Director, Russian Centre of Science and Culture, along with the representatives of the Russian universities, inaugurated the Fair by lighting the traditional lamp.
In his inaugural remarks, commending upon the ardent interest and excellent response shown in the large presence of Indian students and their parents regardless of the scorching summer heat, Mr. Rozovskiy exhorted them to make their own option discreetly and wisely in choosing the subject and university for higher studies in Russia for a better career.
In a Press Conference held at the RCSC on May 25, 2018, Ms. Elena Barman, Head of the Education Department, noted that the standard of higher education in Russia is considered to be one of the most advanced and sophisticated. However, the cost of higher education is relatively cheaper because it is highly subsidized by the Government of the Russian Federation.
