Students ofanASU Partner Take Traineeships atRegional Enterprises

Konstantin Markelov, the Acting Rector ofAstrakhan State University, has met with Italian students who came toAstrakhan toundertake externships atindustrial organizations ofthe region. The Rector asked several questions tothe students onthe level ofcomfort ofstaying atthe university, their work atthe enterprises and heard out their wishes ontheir stay inAstrakhan.

It should be recalled that the group of MA students from Ca’Foscari University of Venice, an international partner of ASU, came to Astrakhan in May within the Erasmus+ grant programme to undertake study programmes and traineeships.

Each of the nine students received an individual programme of externship at three organizations that are partners of our university. A group of students will have a traineeship at the United Shipbuilding Corporation, some students will do the course at the office of the special economic zone "Lotus", while the others will head for Elena Group to undertake a fashion externship at Calzedonia, Intimissimi, Benetton Group and Mondo Italia Gallery.

As the students know Russian quite well, they don’t need any additional Russian courses. However, they expressed a wish to study marketing and economics in Russian. At the enterprises, the students are given tasks on translation from Russian into Italian and English.

As it was noted by Olga Egorova, the Director of the Project Office of International Cooperation and Development, it is possible that these very students will work someday at joint Russian-Italian enterprises or help develop the relations of our countries, having this invaluable experience of traineeships at Astrakhan enterprises.
