Expert opinion

Comment by Deputy Vice-Rector of Bauman Moscow State Technical University Dmitry Drobyshev
The international educational map of the last 4 centuries looks like this. There are two main educational centers — North American and European. The USA, where more than 750 thousand students study, together with neighboring Canada hold a third of the global student foreign contingent. The total educational turnover of Europe, both in terms of the number of students and money, is quite comparable to America. The third is in Australia.

Three flows of educational migration are directed to the centers. The main flow is "East-West", its main channel runs from Southeast Asia in the North American direction. A slightly smaller flow is to Europe. Another transcontinental flow is "South-North", from Southwest Asia and North Africa. Basically, it is also focused on America, less — on Europe. Finally, there is a stream connecting Europe and America, unlike the first two, it is two-way.
Due to the current geopolitical situation, Russian students were "cut off" from the opportunity to study in Western countries. In this regard, students studying at the BMSTU started to consider the possibility of continuing their studies in Asian countries, mainly in China.

Bauman Moscow State Technical University, being one of the founders of the Association of Technical Universities of Russia and China (ATURC), which includes more than 40 universities from each side, has wide opportunities to organize the flow of students to partner universities. Moreover, it should be noted that the Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China provides a large number of scholarships for free education, and to minimize language barriers, it is working to increase the number of study groups studying Chinese.
