Today we’ve signed the Memorandum of Understanding and the Agreement on joint training of students specializing in four Bachelor’s degree programmes. We hope for the fruitful collaboration in the near future.

Today, our delegation has met with PSU for the first time. We’d like PSU delegation to visit our university as well and learn more about its material and technical resources, departments and faculties. Then we will discuss further perspectives and directions for future cooperation. We have a strong desire to work in the research sphere. We’d like to publish our scientific papers in the PSU journal and invite PSU to publish in our university journals. Today we have also agreed on conducting joint scientific conferences, symposia and seminars. In the near future we are going to open joint Master’s degree programmes”.
