This is a once-in-a-lifetime kind of opportunity and students simply can’t afford to miss this. The Russian Education Fair just ended in the city of Kolkata and there were some major takeaways from the event. The contemporary world presents many challenges and Russian education handles them perfectly. A total of thirteen Russian Government institutions participated in this fair which was held on 12th May, 2016 at the Russian Centre for Science & Culture, Kolkata. The top Medical and Engineering universities of Russia interacted with the students and they got a clear idea about the higher education scenario of the country.
Why Education Fairs are important?
The approach of marketing has changed quite a lot in the recent past and customers are tired of targeted messages. Exhibitions handle this issue differently as customers attend the event with a much more relaxed mindset. Educational institutions have increased in number and the competition in student enrollment is huge. Education fairs have become extremely important for both students and teachers. Volgograd State Medical University, Tver State Medical University, Northern State Medical University, Moscow Aviation Institute and several other renowned universities participated in this fair and they provided both UG and PG Programmes in medicine, engineering, sports management, aviation, aerospace and other disciplines.
