MAI Attracts More and More Prospective Students from Uzbekistan
In recent years, Moscow Aviation Institute has created the most comfortable conditions for admission of talented schoolchildren from near-abroad. This year, Moscow Aviation Institute successfully ran an enrollment campaign for applicants from Uzbekistan.
Now, 189 students from Uzbekistan study at Moscow Aviation Institute, of which more than 70 people entered in 2019. The most demanded directions among the applicants are Aircraft Engineering, Applied Informatics and Management. Prospective students from Uzbekistan have high potential: for example, freshman Artyom Barsov got the highest score among all applicants from the CIS in 2019.
In December, representatives of MAI International Department again visited Uzbekistan with the aim of holding a series of meetings with the governance of leading educational organizations, prospective students and their parents.
The events were organized on the basis of the leading lyceums and educational centers of Tashkent: Alfakom Education Center, International House Tashkent Lyceum, Lyceum under the Polytechnic University of Turin, Academic Lyceum of Computer Technologies under Tashkent State Technical University (TSTU).
About 1000 applicants and their parents had the opportunity to attend MAI presentation meeting and ask questions to university representatives and current students from Uzbekistan who moved to Moscow 2 years ago, enrolling Moscow Aviation Institute through distance examinations in Tashkent.
As part of the events held at the International House Academic Lyceum and Alfakom Education Center, business games were held, in which potential applicants were able to test their strength as directors of the enterprise. Their task was to build a plane by attracting MAI students from various specialties. This game in a relaxed atmosphere immersed the schoolchildren in the atmosphere of real serious work and allowed them to get acquainted with MAI training areas.
Today, Uzbekistan takes 1st place among incoming students from the CIS countries at Moscow Aviation Institute. In the 2019 admission campaign, Olympiads and distance examinations at several sites were held in Tashkent, that helped identify schoolchildren with high potential in various areas of study.
“This month we launched the telegram channel @maiuzb,” said Alexander Novikov, a representative of MAI International Department. “It will be broadcasted by students from Uzbekistan, who have recently entered MAI. They will share their impressions about training and student life in Moscow. Such a format will help applicants to put themselves in MAI student place and to plunge into the academic reality before admission.”
Educational events held by Moscow Aviation Institute in Tashkent allow prospective students to get acquainted with the university and make important decisions that determine the future. According to our forecasts, in 2020 the intake of international students from Uzbekistan will increase, and, in turn, Moscow Aviation Institute will continue to create better conditions for admission.
