Its program included a scientific conference, a photo competition and an exhibition of the best works, a friendly soccer match between the world team and the team of Crimea and many other activities.
According to the organizers, Crimean universities are very popular among foreign students, and this is due to several factors at once. First and foremost, local universities have a tradition of training qualified personnel. In the Crimea is a very mild climate and a huge variety of cultures and religions. Today about two thousand students from more than fifty countries study in the peninsula.
While getting a profession, foreign students get acquainted with history and culture of Russia and Crimea, learn Russian language and take part in public life. This is one of the main traditions of the Russian higher school.
