IUNC Latin America was held on March 04-05 and united around 30 university representatives from different parts of the world. The participants mostly came from Latin America - Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia and Argentina, though some universities from far-away countries like Russia and Spain also made their way to the conference. Besides, universities from Australia, UK and USA were present at the conference.
The prescheduled appointment format once again proved to be highly efficient allowing the participants to quickly find potential partners and have direct contact with them. Besides, by meeting potential partners face-to-face the universities were able to get unbiased first-hand information of the possible cooperation areas and peculiarities of a certain education market.
The morning part of the conference as usual featured several parallel sessions:
Int’l HigherEd Cooperation Review (based on latest EEUA survey) by Mr Bogdan Vornovskiy, Easstern European University Association
From "Study abroad" to "International Education": What changes? What challenges? by Ms Vera Cerqueiras, FLACSO Argentina
Full Scholarships in Russia by Ms Ekaterina Lyubimova, Ural Federal University
It is notable that 3 universities from Russia came for IUNC LA - Pirogov Russian National Research Medical University, St.Petersburg Polytechnic University, Ural Federal University - showing the high interest of Russian universities in collaboration with their BRICS peers.
IUNC Latin America was conveniently scheduled adjacent to FPP EDU Media giving the participants the unique opportunity to meet with agents and students as well.
We strongly believe next year IUNC Latin America will gather still more participants uniting the best HE specialists from this region!
