Date of material placement: 5-02-2014, 16:19.

Dmitry Sumskoy (First Pro-Rector, NCFU) had a meeting with the most active senior students and post-graduates Other participants were Lyudmila Alieva (Department for International Affairs) and Irina Lukiantseva (Head of Department for Youth Policy, Student Bodies, and Initiatives. The meeting was far from purely official, yet with tea and cookies.

In his opening speech Dmitry Sumskoy stated that the NCFU has been established to offer quality training in the region, so the students should not have to travel to Moscow or St. Petersburg. Yet, to be competitive it takes highly competent teaching staff. And even though University can boast of good teachers nowadays it still needs more young experts including those who got their experience abroad. For this purpose the NCFU is launching a new project, which, as Dmitry Sumskoy explained, shall imply allocating funding for the best graduates to undergo Master training abroad within fields that are of specific interest to the NCFU (one of them is Service and Tourism). Such training shall be subject to contract with the NCFU, under which such students upon graduation from foreign institutions will be liable to return and teach at their Alma Mater for a certain period of time. This would allow students earning a European degree at the same time bringing new expert knowledge to the NCFU.

The University, in turn, has something to offer to students, too, because the salaries paid at our University rate among the highest in the region. There are also new buildings being constructed that will offer the employees and students comfortable working environment and dwelling as well. Also, the NCFU is currently establishing an Association for Graduates, which is to become a serious sponsor to various projects.

Dmitry Sumskoy also told the participants that there are more other significant projects that are already being run at the NCFU, e.g. joint Master Programmes where students can study part of their courses in a different Federal University at the same time having all the credits transferred. This will allow earning degrees from more than one Federal Institutions at the same.

Another option is the Double Degree Programme aiming at helping students study abroad. As of now there are agreements signed with Universities from Austria, Italy, Germany, Norway, Portugal, and other countries. In 2013 alone 43 NCFU students received their training abroad, so First Pro-Rector asked students not to be shy: "You should take the risks while young, just move ahead, develop! We are offering you huge possibilities now, so just go!”

Lyudmila Alieva supported Dmitry Sumskoy’s words stating that "Each year we have the contest of Erasmus Mundus. However many students stay away from that being not confident enough of their capacity. But just take my word for it, we did have many average students who did really great when placed for studies in Europe. Please, always believe in yourself, try it!”.

"The best graduates should stay with us. It is due to your help that we are planning to have a huge leap forward. When back with new knowledge you will be able to develop newer ideas thus making our University better”, - these were the final words Dmitry Sumskoy gave to the audience.

Next week already foreign language tests will be launched for students, so many of them may start their training in the best colleges of Europe soon.
