The online meeting

March 28, 2023 Department of Social Communication, Faculty of Psychology with the assistance of Department of International Relations Tomsk State University invites university professors, Russian and Vietnamese students, and teachers of the Russian language in Vietnam and their students to take part in the online meeting «Let’s Get Acquainted: How the University Brings Russia and Vietnam Together».

The Siberian city of Tomsk has historically developed as a space of intercultural communication. Being in the center of the Eurasian continent, it has been equally open to the West and the East. Although Tomsk has cold climate conditions and stands aside from the major transport hubs, the city is worth visiting and choosing as a place to study because of the hospitality of Siberian people, and the special cozy atmosphere of an old city.

Tomsk State University (TSU), the first Russian University beyond the Urals, celebrates its 145-year anniversary this year. In 2020, TSU became the most international university in Russia; it was chosen by students of 70 countries. Over the past few years, the Bachelor’s Program in Advertising and Public Relations at TSU has attracted students from Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, China, Indonesia and Vietnam.

At the moment, 10 students from Vietnam are doing the Program in Advertising and Public Relations at TSU. In 2021, four Bachelor students graduated from TSU with BAs in Advertising and Public Relations and returned to Vietnam. All these students finished the same Vietnamese specialized schools for gifted children earlier (Secondary School named after Trang Phu in Haiphong and High School named after Nguyen Chai in Hai Duong). The teachers of these schools prepare their students in an atmosphere of cultural trust to Russia. Graduates of Vietnamese schools, overcoming stereotypes about Siberia, come to Tomsk and do their degrees successfully at TSU, and the university is grateful to them for this.

On 28 March, from 19.30 to 21.30 (UTC +7) the online meeting Let’s Get Acquainted: How the University Brings Russia and Vietnam Together will be held as part of the International University Conference Connect-Universum-2023. The event will be held in a hybrid format (office 022, University Building 4, TSU + online Zoom meeting).

The meeting is organized for those who are interested in:

  • – strengthening the intercultural dialogue between Russia and Vietnam;
  • – the role of universities in the development of Russian-Vietnamese relations;
  • – the experience of Vietnamese students who decided to study in Siberia;
  • – the impressions that Vietnamese students who study at TSU have about Russia and Siberia;
  • – the ways to overcome intercultural differences between Russian and Vietnamese students;
  • – the features of training programs for specialists in communications at the universities of Russia and Vietnam;
