The forum was held as part of the jubilee events dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University.
Diana Khoderyan and Ruzanna Matinyan, students of the Russian-Armenian University majoring in Journalism, participated in an international media forum in Bishkek. The forum was held on October 12 within the framework of the jubilee events dedicated to the 30th anniversary of the Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University named after the first President of Russia Boris Yeltsin and gathered students from Russia and national Russian universities.
Note that a delegation headed by the RAU Rector, Doctor of Economic Sciences of RA and RF Professor Edward Sandoyan left for Bishkek from RAU. RAU representatives took part in the panel discussion "Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University 2050: Prospects and Priorities" and round tables (read more here >>
). The student program was very intensive: in addition to the forum, other interesting events were waiting for them.
"The goal of the forum is to help young media professionals expand their circle of professional contacts and gain new in-demand skills,"
highlighted Konstantin Mogilevsky, Deputy Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, in his video greeting.
According to RAU students, the work during the media forum was in full swing. As a result of the two days, a Telegram channel "Media Kabat" was created, a platform for exchange of knowledge, experience and cultural values between students and lecturers.
"The main goal of the forum was to create a common media channel of communications. We worked in teams, creating our own information platforms: of course, this is a new experience and new opportunities," said Diana Khoderyan.
As part of the forum, participants also met journalists from Sputnik Kyrgyzstan who answered students' questions, gave professional advice and conducted a short tour of the editorial office.
"When I entered university, I dreamed of participating in forums like this because it's a cool opportunity to travel and study at the same time," shared Ruzanna Matinyan.
It should be noted that Valery Falkov, Minister of Science and Higher Education of the Russian Federation, also attended the events for the 30th anniversary of the Kyrgyz-Russian Slavic University.
