VLADIVOSTOK, April 12 (Itar-Tass) — Over 600 foreign students will begin to attend the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) this year under Master and Bachelor degree programmes. Those will be young people from China, Malaysia, the Republic of Korea, the Democratic People's Republic of Korea, India, Japan, Indonesia, and Mongolia, an official in the FEFU press service told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
In order to attract attention, FEFU has planned out several arrangements: FEFU representatives are to hold Open-Door Days for potential applicants in the Chinese cities of Suifenhe, Mudanjiang, and Harbin at the end of April and in the city of Heihe early in May, with the presentations of the educational programmes of FEFU Schools, lessons of the Russian language, and concerts to be given FEFU performing groups.
In the second half of July, the Primorsky (maritime) Territory will receive about 150 young people from Pacific Rim countries: an International Summer School will be held to acquaint the visitors with FEFU educational programmes.
By 2019, the share of foreign students at FEFU is to account for 25 percent, or 7,500 young people, according to FEFU development programme. More than 800 foreigners already attend lessons at the University.
