"Study in Russia-2020" education fair in Alexandria, Egypt

On August 29th, 2020 the "Study in Russia-2020" education fair was successfully held in the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Alexandria, Egypt. It was organized by the group of Russian state universities RACUS with the support of the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Alexandria.
It was the first education fair held in offline format since the coronavirus pandemic restrictions in Egypt took effect. The fair generated a lot of interest, as during the months of lockdown the issue of obtaining higher education in Russia became even more relevant. This is why RACUS organization has been very active on the Internet using multiple online sources of information in Egypt. The fair was a success and respected all the precautionary measures recommended by the relevant Egyptian services (wearing of masks, social distancing, etc.), which allowed school leavers and their parents to get answers to all their questions from members of RACUS organization.

Education fair visitors found out that 20 state universities of RACUS group offer more than 500 study programs in medicine, engineering, economics and humanities, taught in Russian and English and that the 2020/2021 academic year will take place in traditional offline format. Visitors were mostly interested by Russian medical study programs. Parents of future students have been as usual concerned with the security issues of staying and studying in Russia, members of RACUS organization in Alexandria have managed to allay their fears, because the epidemiological situation in Russia is one of the most stable in the world at the moment. It is controlled by the government and the prognosis is optimistic. Russian research centers have already developed medications and vaccines against coronavirus that have already been tested.

RACUS organization would like to thank the Russian Center for Science and Culture in Alexandria and personally its director Marat Gatin for the help in setting up this education fair which, we hope, will help Egyptian school graduates to come and study at Russian universities.
