More possibilities of student exchanges with the Russian federation
Portorož, 9 December 2015 – Assoc. prof. Igor Jurinčič, Vice Dean for Research and assoc. prof. Gordana Ivankovič, Vice Dean for Study Affairs, welcomed the new director of the Russian Scientific and Cultural Centre Mr. Jurij Meteljov, and talked about establishing cooperation with the Russian universities in the field of research, education and consequently teacher and student exchanges. We are looking forward to this cooperation especially in the field of wellness and medical tourism, but as tourism has a wide range of activities, it offers many possibilities for knowledge exchange.
The Russian Scientific and Cultural Centre in Ljubljana organises a wide variety of events and lectures on Russian culture and society, thus connecting Slovenia to Russia and enriching their collaboration. As we are noticing an increase in the interest for our study programmes by Russian students, we are really looking forward for this new cooperation.
