UrFU delegation to attend communications workshop in Thailand

A select group of students from Yekaterinburg's Ural Federal University will travel to its sister campus in Thailand later this month to attend a workshop on school leadership and communications.

The workshop, which will be held from July 26 to Aug. 15, is presented as a partnership between Ural Federal University in Thailand and the International University College Burapha (BUUIC). During the first 10 days of the workshop, students will be trained in Russian-language communication skills centering on university leadership.

The next portion of the workshop will help develop Russian students' knowledge of Thai culture as they work alongside their Thai counterparts in areas of global communication, conflict management in Thai culture, motivation and personality types. The workshop will be conducted entirely in English.

When the training session is complete, each student will receive a certificate on completion signed by officials from both UrFU-Thailand and BUUIC.
