In honor of the 25th anniversary of friendship between Russia and Vietnam, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced 2019-2020 the cross year of Vietnam in Russia and Russia in Vietnam.
Derzhavin University strengthens and develops cooperation with Vietnam. So, the International Summer School of Active Youth “Our Unity in our Diversity” was held at TSU. 15 students from different Vietnamese specialized schools came to the Tambov Campus.
- Last year, at the initiative of the Hanoi branch of the Institute of Russian Language named after A.S. Pushkin, we specially organized a school only for students from Vietnam, who had been studying Russian at the TSU for three weeks, - said Tatyana Osadchaya, vice-rector of TSU for International Relations. - This year the delegation of schoolchildren from Vietnam, who arrived at the International Summer School, became larger. It included the winners of the Russian language Olympiad in Hanoi.
Teachers of TSU named after G.R. Derzhavin, along with colleagues from other Russian universities, participated in the Russian language Olympiad for schoolchildren in Vietnam. In particular, assignments were developed by the director of the Center for International Programs and Projects of the Office of International Relations, Maria Matveeva, and Doctor of Philology, Professor Antonina Shcherbak.
Irina Bezukladova, head of the TSU Department of International Relations and Maria Kornishina, deputy director of the Center for International Education last year presented Derzhavin University at an educational exhibition in Vietnam.
For more than a year TSU has been cooperating in the fields of education, science and culture with the Hanoi branch of the Institute of Russian Language named after A.S. Pushkin. Cooperation provides for the implementation of joint research projects, competitions, festivals, educational courses and advanced training for Russian scholars.
In a number of projects dedicated to the Cross Year, the Center for International Programs and Projects of the Department of International Relations of TSU together with the Hanoi branch of the Russian Language Institute named after A.S. Pushkin developed a regional study course "Russian Studies" to participate in the competition for a grant from the “Russkiy Mir” Foundation under the program "Professors of the Russian World". If the result is positive, the project will be implemented in Vietnam on the basis of the Hanoi branch of the Institute of Russian Language named after A.S. Pushkin from October to December 2019 for 300 Vietnamese students.
