For the first time in its international relations history NMSTU has welcomed a delegation from Australia. Professor In Sik Chang and student enrolment agent Alexander Petrov from King's Own Institute in Sidney, Australia gave a presentation of the Australian institute with the highest percent of native Russian speakers among its students.

This multicultural institution with nationals of more than 70 countries among its students is situated in the heart of Sidney and enjoys an excellent reputation as a provider of quality business and English language education. The NMSTU leadership and King's Own Institute discussed the possibility of launching student mobility programmes based on the credit transfer system.

The two universities also looked at the possibility of launching a double degree programme. The Australian guests pointed out that the students might face certain difficulties getting Australian visas, at the same time they have every prospect of success. Besides, the certificate of mobility programme completion will make it much easier for potential Master’s students to acquire their Australian visas. On the whole, a King's Own Institute diploma will boost one’s employment prospects not only in Russia but also abroad.

In the world as globalized as today’s world is, a young person is free to decide if he or she wants to spend four years studying at the same institution or maybe make most of it and sign up for an exchange programme. In today’s world offering such opportunities it wouldn’t probably be wise to do your degree at the same university. Being a modern dynamic institution, we do provide such an opportunity to our students – they can become exchange students, learn English, test themselves in a foreign country. After all, it is through such experience that a young person goes through a personality growth. I would surely be happy to see all our students go for it. If you look at the guys who come back after a semester abroad, you see a great change in them. They bring new mentality and a lot of new knowledge with them. And then they can’t but strive for more – for further growth and putting their innovative minds to work, thus making our lives better,” NMSTU’s vice rector for international affairs Aleksey Korchunov said in his closing speech.
