Siberian Federal University plans to expand cooperation with Uzbekistan
On March 11, 2021, a delegation of the Embassy of the Republic of Uzbekistan headed by Timur Rakhmanov, the Consul General of the Republic of Uzbekistan in Novosibirsk, visited Siberian Federal University. During the business meeting, they disscussed expansion and development of existing Russian-Uzbek relations in the scientific and educational sphere.
The delegation met with representatives of the Science and Education Cluster in the field of Economics and Management, the School of Civil Engineering, the School of Space and Information Technologies, the Polytechnic School and the School for Humanities.
“Today, inter-university cooperation between our countries plays a key role. In the future, we see a greater representation of your university in Uzbekistan and an increase in the number of students. Special attention in the republic is paid to the development of tourism and hospitality,” said Mr. Rakhmanov in his welcoming speech.
Students from Uzbekistan studying at SibFU also took part in the meeting. Doniyorbek Salimov, a student of the School of Gastronomy, told his story of choosing a university.
“I entered the new School of Gastronomy because of a good perspective and a wide range of the practical activities in various restaurants of the Bellini group. I came to Krasnoyarsk to study this unique program and receive a double diploma from SibFU and Institut Paul Bocuse. In the future, I am planning to become a chef,” told the first-year student.
According to Anna Mezit, head of the Department for International Cooperation, the opening of a career counselling center for applicants in Uzbekistan will become one of the hotspots for freshmen.
“We are always open to new partnerships and are interested in expanding scientific and educational contacts. Currently, 33 students from the Republic of Uzbekistan are studying at SibFU. Undoubtedly, there should be more. We have something to offer in various areas of training and advanced training, from the construction of unique buildings and structures to the preservation of historical and cultural heritage,” summed up Anna Mezit.
