Sergey Mikhailovich, technical specialty is your choice since childhood

Payments are almost invisible during training

The Bank provides such a loan to pay for training in basic programs of higher and secondary vocational education in organizations that have entered into a tripartite agreement with the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia and RosinterBank.

At the moment, the rate is 7, 625% per annum. In RosinterBank, this loan is called “Offset”.

When do you need to repay the entire loan amount?There is a grace period for the payment of the principal debt for the entire period of study. That is, the student pays only interest on the loan during his studies, and the main debt begins to be paid 3 months after graduation.Payments are almost invisible during training. For the first two years, only part of the interest is paid: 40% of the accrued interest – in the first year of lending, 60% of the accrued interest – in the second year.

Starting from the third year and until the end of the studies, only interest is paid on the loan, after which an additional three months of additional deferral of repayment of the principal debt is given so that the student can find a job, and only after that, the principal debt is repaid within 10 years.

Interview with the rector of N.N. R. E. Alekseeva, professor, doctor of technical sciences Sergey Dmitriev

Sergei Mikhailovich, is a technical profession your choice since childhood?

I was born into a family of an engineer and a doctor – my mother is an honored doctor of Russia, and my father has always worked in the defense industry. I was interested in radio engineering since childhood: at about 7 years old I assembled the first detector receiver, in those days it was not so easy.

I thought I would be a radio operator, but then in high school I started reading about nuclear physics. At that time, our housemate was a scientist – academician Fyodor Mitenkov, who ran one of the “closed” enterprises (now it is Rosatom – OKBM Afrikantov).

We talked with him, he gave me books, so I consciously decided that I would be a nuclear engineer, an engineer-physicist and entered the physics and technology faculty at the Gorky Polytechnic Institute, which was then closed in Nizhny Novgorod.

I like it when people are passionate about our common idea.

Please tell us about your student life – how did you remember it, what was the brightest and most interesting?

The first thing that I remember as a student was the conscious acquisition of good fundamental knowledge. In my student years, I began to engage in scientific work. I also remember our industrial practices at nuclear power plants – at Beloyarskaya, Kola.

I would especially note the active social activity – I was a member of the Komsomol committee, headed the council of excellent students, since I myself was an excellent student. Life was eventful.

Why did you connect your life with the university?

I wanted to continue doing science, I was good at it.

What do you find most interesting in your work?

The most interesting thing is communication with a large number of people, communication with students. I am an “acting” professor and enjoy lecturing. I like it when people are passionate about our common idea and then achieve their goal.

What character traits help you in your work?

Purposefulness, perseverance in achieving goals, perseverance, efficiency and communication skills, without which it is very difficult to work.

What is your life credo?

The motto with which I go through life is “Lucky for those who are lucky themselves.”

Do you have a favorite book, favorite movie?

Everything in my life is connected with science – and this is reflected in my literary and cinematic preferences. I like the film “Nine Days of One Year”, where Batalov played the scientist Gusev, the book by Daniil Granin “Bison” about the geneticist Timofeev-Resovsky. And from the “unscientific” – “The Golden Calf” by Ilf and Petrov.

Interview with Denis Konanchuk, Deputy Academic Dean of the Moscow School of Management SKOLKOVO

The Global Education program provides Russian students with the opportunity to study at the best universities in the world at public expense.

Read about how to become a member of the Program, what job prospects open to graduates after training and about the difficulties of student life abroad, read our special material.

What are the requirements for candidates?To participate in the Global Education program, you must be a citizen of the Russian Federation, have a higher education at least a bachelor’s level, not have an outstanding criminal record and independently enroll in one of the leading foreign educational institutions from the approved list (288 universities in 32 countries of the world) in priority areas.

The Global Education Program has been in existence for the third year. How many students have been trained so far, how many will be taking it this year?The Global Education program was approved by the RF Government Resolution No. 568 dated June 20, 2014.

Its actual implementation began in October 2014 with the launch of the official website and the announcement of the first pilot selection of participants. Therefore, we can talk about more than 1.5 years of implementation of the Program.

Engineering takes the first place – over 35%, the second – science – over 25%

To date, 224 unique participants are the winners of the Program (the total number of winners is higher, since some candidates have won several selections).

Of these, more than 120 participants are currently studying at leading foreign universities, 7 have already completed the training process and are working in Russian organizations according to their qualifications.

What are the areas of training? Why only these directions?The decree of the Government of the Russian Federation enshrines the goal of the Program: the preservation and increase of scientific, pedagogical, medical and engineering personnel, managerial personnel in the social sphere, as well as support for Russian citizens who independently entered the leading foreign educational organizations, and their subsequent employment.

Can you single out some areas that are especially in demand among students?For more than 1.5 years of the Program’s implementation, the statistics on the demand for certain areas have remained approximately stable.

The first place is confidently occupied by engineering – more than 35% (including due to IT specialties), the second – by science – more than 25%, directions in education, medicine and management in the social sphere occupy approximately equal positions with minor changes depending on the recruitment …

Interview with the head of the ICC “Artek” Konstantin Fedorenko

A lot of foreign children come to Artek, more and more every year. In what language do they communicate with our guys and with Artek people from other countries?

Yes, indeed, a lot of foreign children come to us, we are developing our strategy “Artek OPEN”. In July, we hosted the largest international session of 2019 “We are different – we are equal”, children from 76 countries came, all of them took part in more than 100 artek-wide events on the topic of dialogue between cultures and peoples.

Over the past few months, among other foreign children in “Artek” there were children from Syria, they learn Russian at school, there it is a compulsory subject. Mongolia has resumed a national competition in the Russian language, the main prize of which is a ticket to Artek; the competition is shown on central television and is very popular there. In this August shift we have children from 31 countries.

The geography of countries is expanding where Russian is taught and where parents, in spite of political moments, are trying to send their children to us at Artek. Perhaps the most famous example is the final of the Live Classics competition, which we host every year. Foreign students learn Russian prose by heart and compete in the Artek Arena to see who will best represent the selected work. Only about two million from 60 countries submitted initial applications for this competition this year, and 255 children came to Artek. I can say with confidence that the work of “Artek” in this direction is bearing fruit: every year we observe a quantitative and qualitative increase in communication in Russian between Artek residents. If in 2017 the children’s Serbian delegation spoke almost only English, today the majority of foreign children speak Russian.

Why do Russian children need such intensive communication with foreign children in Russian?Such programs are very enriching for all participants. The foreign guys will “tighten” their Russian and will find new friends here. And our children will see that the Russian language, which they speak every day and which, perhaps, does not seem to them an important subject at school, turns out to be a huge wealth, that it is appreciated and studied all over the world and that love for the Russian language and literature can be not only enjoyable, but also directly beneficial.
