The Russian Centre of Science and Culture (RCSC) organised an information stage and a qualifying round of the Maths Olympiad, within the framework of an international educational project called "Time to study in Russia!" in New Delhi on April 6-7, 2016. It was jointly arranged by representatives of the National Research Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU), Corporation Rosatom, ‘RusEducation’, the centre providing information and guidance for higher education in Russia, along with the Centre for Russian Language Teachers’ Training, RCSC.
"Time to study in Russia!" is an initiative of a group of leading Russian technical universities, ROSSOTRUDNICHESTVO and the Russian Ministry of Education and Science. The project includes organization of maths competitions, educational exhibitions and presentations by leading Russian universities. The main aim of the Olympiad in India is to pick the most talented graduates from Indian schools and colleges for training in technical and economic fields in Russian universities. The Russian government will determine the quota and numbers and disseminate information about higher education institutions involved in the project.
For the Olympiad, students, their parents and members of educational administration held a conference and training seminar. Tatiana Perova, Head of the Russian Language Training Centre, acquainted participants with the benefits of higher education in Russia, describing the conditions there and procedure for registration for those who will be funded by the Russian government. Lyudmila Larina, Deputy Director of the TPU’s Institute of International Education and Language Communication, made a presentation about the school and spoke about the "Time to study in Russia." project. RusEducation shared experiences of working with Russian universities. Natalia Kudryashova, Representative of Corporation Rosatom in India, outlined career prospects of nuclear energy professionals in India.
The participants, eager to go to Russia for higher education, had an opportunity to discuss pressing issues like the mutual recognition of diplomas and differences in medical and engineering education in both countries.
An intensive promotion campaign for the "Time to study in Russia!" project took place in Delhi and Chennai. Around 630 people attended the information stage (presentations for pupils and students) and around 400 young Indians participated in the Olympiad from schools, colleges and universities, including IIT Madras, Anna University, Hindustan University, VELS University, Rajalakshmi Engineering College, Boston International School, Jawaharlal Nehru University, Delhi University, BPS Mahila Vishwavidyalaya, and other educational institutions.
