Maximilian Spinner of German Embassy meets linguistics students
On November 27, USU hosted Mr. Maximilian Spinner, regional representative of the German Embassy in Moscow, who met students of the international relations institute as part of his visit to Ulyanovsk intended to promote contact s between Russian and German regions.
The guest was especially interested in learning about the Russian-German faculty that offers dual degree opportunities for students willing to complete their education both at USU and a German partner institution.
Mr. Spinner told the audience about various initiatives taken by the embassy to promote German language studies in Russia, where German remains the subject of intense interest, despite the growing popularity of English.
The speaker promised to assist USU in expanding cooperation with German educational institutions to include more student exchange and internship opportunities, summer language schools and scientific conferences.
