Russian language students of one of UK’s leading universities had the opportunity to learn about professional and educational prospects in Russia from the representative office of Rossotrudnichestvo in London.
Job opportunities and work experience in leading Russian corporations attracts students from all over the world. Along with the love for Russian literature and culture, this is one of the reasons why foreign students study Russian. Third-year Durham University students got answers to their questions about potential internships in large Russian organizations, as well as practical advice on finding prospective employers in Russia. Russian education, which becomes more attractive year to year, was also discussed in the course of the meeting. Students who have already started their studies in Russia on a fee basis were interested in the possibility of switching to Russian state-funded programs.
The meeting was organized by Russian language teacher at Durham University, Olga Zabotkina. For many years Olga has been introducing students to the Russian language and literature not just through language classes, but also through thematic meetings, conferences, performances and other interesting events.
