Cooperation with Egypt within the framework of the Center's activities has been taking place for a long time — the last few years there has been active work with the AGES company and its head Osama Mohamed. Covid restrictions have eased slightly, and now working meetings can sometimes be held in person over a cup of traditional Egyptian tea.
"It was a great pleasure for us to welcome Dmitri to Egypt, to see him for the first time in such a long period that we spent online, working together meticulously on building of work processes," Osama Mohamed, who knows the universities of our country firsthand, shared his emotions. He received his first education in Tyumen.
The agenda of Dmitri's visit included presentations of Russian universities for Egyptian applicants, meetings with local universities, their managers and owners. A separate field for heated discussions is the academic recognition of Russian educational organizations in Egypt. We all know that "shortlist" of accredited universities, which, for one reason or another, the Egyptians showed to Russia in the spring of this year.
The first day of the visit was marked by several meetings, including a return trip to Sadat City University, where Nersesyan was received by the president of the university Ahmed Byomi, who recently visited the capital of Russia. A day later, the parties held a meeting in Tanta and arranged an auto-trip from Cairo to Alexandria.
"We had a good meeting with the President of Tanta University, Dr. Mahmoud Zaki. Founded in 1972, this university has become one of the academic leaders of the Egyptian market. About 135 thousand people study there. The university experts are members of our Education Exporters Club. We are happy to do productive work for the benefit of the common goal. As a result of the negotiations, we have planned a visit of Dr. Zaki to Russia in the coming months," Dmitri Nersesyan said.
