Dmitri Nersesyan, Head of the Education Export Center, together with Yulia Petrova, Deputy Secretary General of the Eurasian People's Assembly, took part in the hearings of the Civic Chamber of the Russian Federation on attracting and accompanying foreign students.
Dmitri Nersesyan shared the EEC's experience of developing an international agency channel for foreign students recruitment.
"I consider it crucial to create a professional association of educational consultants and develop this industry up to the creation of a professional standard. At the current stage of development, Russia is an attractive country for foreign students and recruiting companies, which increases the likelihood that some agents will not do a completely conscientious job. We must find a way to protect universities and students from these risks through regulatory mechanisms of the professional community," Nersesyan said.
The most important issues of recruiting were discussed at the hearings, they were attended by leading Russian experts in the field of international education, including Pavel Shevtsov, Deputy Head of Rossotrudnichestvo, Larisa Taradina, Director for the Development of International Education and Cooperation, Avbakar Nutsalov, General Director of the Rakus organization.
