TSU will prepare special offers for teaching students from Indonesia

A delegation from Indonesia headed by the Deputy Governor of North Sumatra, one of the country’s largest provinces, recently visited TSU. The guests viewed the University’s developments in biotechnology, information technology, and the production of products from materials with shape memory, and visited Artlife, TSU’s commercial partner. At a meeting with TSU’s Rector, they discussed creating a TSU preparatory faculty in Indonesia.

The delegation that visited TSU included Teoh Seng Lee, Honorary Consul of the Russian Federation in Malaysia; Muhammad Fauzi Nasution, Honorary Consul of the Russian Federation in North Sumatra; Musa Rajekshah Anif, Deputy Governor of North Sumatra; and Muhammad Armand Effendy Pohan, Head of Research and Development for the Government of North Sumatra.

- We already have two students from North Sumatra, both of them studying in the quotas of the Russian Federation. However, the government of North Sumatra is ready to send more students to TSU, said Musa Rajekshah Anif at the meeting.

Currently 12 Indonesian students and one graduate student are studying at TSU, in international relations, geology, biology, and economics. Another 18 future TSU students are studying at the Pre-courses Department. The university actively collaborates with Indonesian universities: since 2014, five joint summer and winter schools have been held for students from both countries. TSU has collaborated with Udayana University, Padjadjaran University, Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology, University of Pattimura, Pertamina University, and Gadjah Mada University – the Indonesian Harvard, which the President graduated from.

- We very much hope that your visit will be a catalyst for new projects in collaboration between the two countries in education and business, - TSU Rector Eduard Galazhinsky welcomed the guests. - For example, we can consider creating a preparatory department in North Sumatra, which will allow covering a greater number of people who want to study at TSU.

  The participants also discussed the opportunities that are opening up for students upon admission to TSU. These are joint programs with universities in the UK, France, and the Netherlands, the Software Engineering program, and a special mathematics educational course now being prepared for launch, which will use adaptive content and be attuned to the individual basic knowledge and features of each student, based on individual trajectories and data analysis. 

Indonesia is among the countries that are priorities for TSU in the export of education. Indonesian partners have a great deal of interest in Russia, Russian culture, and the Russian language.
