ISU students have returned from France. In September 2015 Fеdor Eskov, Tatiana Stepanova, Anton Makarenko (International Institute of Economics and Linguistics) and Galina Makarova (Service and Advertising Faculty) left for study under the program “Business English” at the University of Savoy Mont Blanc (Chambery, France).
In April 2014 ISU and the University of Savoy Mont Blanc concluded the agreement on double-degree programs. The program is aimed at training specialists to be employed in state and private companies working with foreign partners.
– At first, it was not easy to integrate into a new culture, follow new traditions, and get used to new methods of teaching. But we managed to cope with all these difficulties. We met new interesting people, and we had classes with other foreign students from Romania and Italy. It was amazing! We had a chance to learn English and French with native speakers, participate in various events, - Tatiana Stepanova expressed her opinion.
Cooperation between Irkutsk State University and the University of Savoy is in progress: in March the professor from France is invited to deliver lectures at ISU.
