New Delhi: 19th August 2020: (RCS and C//Education Screen)::
The 21st Annual Educational Fair "Russian Education - 2020" was held in India from 16 to 18 August. The event was organized by the Russian Centre of Science and Culture in New Delhi and its traditional partner-the educational company RusEducation, which has been helping Indian citizens to enrol in Russian universities for over 20 years.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the exhibition was organized on the basis of a specially created online platform. This format made it possible to significantly increase the scale of the event and provide access to it for applicants throughout the country. The educational exhibition provided an opportunity for students and their parents to communicate directly with university representatives via video communication and online chat, and to submit their application online. Visitors were presented with video tours and photo galleries of Russian universities and the cities in which they are located, as well as reviews from former and current students. In just two days of the exhibition, it was visited by more than 10 thousand people, with a peak activity of two thousand visitors at a time.

This year, 10 Russian universities took part in the exhibition, including: Perm State Medical University, Orenburg State Medical University, Mari State University, Moscow Aviation Institute, Southern Federal University, Siberian State Medical University, Ufa State Petroleum Technical University, Ural Federal University, Novosibirsk State University and Far Eastern Federal University.

A series of webinars was held on the side-lines of the virtual educational fair, at which participating universities presented their organizations, spoke about the available programs and answered questions from Indian applicants.

A Virtual Round table Conference “Education in Russia. Perspectives for Indian Students amid the Coronavirus Pandemic" also took place within the framework of the educational fair. The event was held on the ZOOM platform with live broadcast on Facebook and the exhibition website.

The main speakers of the conference were: Deputy of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation Sergey Veremeenko, Rector of Orenburg State Medical University Igor Miroshnichenko, Rector of Ufa State Petroleum Technical University Oleg Baulin, Vice-Rector for Educational Activities of Perm State Medical University Natalia Minaeva, Head of International Affairs Department of Mari State University Natalia Kanashina, Chairman of RusEducation, Professor Syed Kamruzzaman, Head of the Representative Office of Rossotrudnichestvo in India Fedor Rozovsky, Co-Chairman of RusEducation Admiral R. K. Dhowan (Retd),  Vice Chairman of RusEducation Air Marshal (Dr) Pawan Kapoor (Retd) and others.

The event participants shared their experience in developing the infrastructure of their universities to ensure a more comfortable stay for foreign students, introducing new English-language programs, working in the context of the coronavirus pandemic, and also discussed the prospects for further development of interaction between our states in the field of higher education and the most pressing issues we face in this area.
The second stage of the online exhibition will take place in September 2020.
