On August 29, 2019, the annual general meeting of the faculty, heads of the departments, divisions and services was held at the Russian new University (RosNOU).
Rector Vladimir Zernov in his speech highlighted the success of university students:
“Our students win many interuniversity and all-Russian competitions. They are better prepared than students of many state universities, especially in the field of linguistics and information technology. Of course, this is an indicator of the good work of RosNOU professors.”
Vice-rector for Academic Affairs Grigory Shabanov summed up the results of the past academic year, talked about the tasks for the new academic year, noted the best professors, and also reported on the results of the admission campaign:
“Both the number of applicants and the average score were increased this year. For state-funded student places, the average score amounted to 75.95 and for self-financing places – 60.7.
For the first time, the applicants with Unified State Examination scores of 100 points were enrolled at RosNOU.”
Vice-Rector for Scientific Work Evgeniy Palkin stressed the importance to develop student science and to improve basic departments; also he described the recent progress achieved in scientific activities:
“University science is implemented in specific forms, and each university’s science has its own features. One of the reasons for that is the frequent change of regulatory requirements. Among the main tasks for us is finding a balance between real scientific research and its reflection in various necessary documents.”
