A new international educational program at the Far Eastern Federal University (FEFU) brought together students from BRICS countries, TASS reports.

The students from each country will spend a semester at FEFU, studying together in areas of interest to each of the five countries and at the same time key to the university. It includes the study of the oceans, medicine, cybersecurity, business and project management, as well as international relations. Russian teachers as well as prominent professors from other countries are involved in the project. 

Almost forty participants in the FEFU Academic Excellence and Honors Education program joined the students.

Before the start of the program, the foreign students went on tour across Vladivostok and the university. A mobile app was developed for them - it contains  the class schedule and the campus map.

Students will take part in lectures, research seminars, engage in project work, and also get the opportunity to discuss the current global agenda and study Russia's foreign policy and its role in BRICS. At the same time, the program participants will be offered open lessons of their native language in a conversation club, master classes on the cultural traditions of their country, and informal communication.

In total, more than three and a half thousand foreign students from 74 countries study at FEFU.
