A new member in Campus Europae!

The European University Foundation - Campus Europae (EUF-CE) has just grown to 20 European Universities, being involved in the network, organising academic exchange and taking part in the internationalization process of their universities: We are proud to welcome the "Yaroslav-the-Wise Novgorod State University" (NovSU) from Russia in our network!

NovSUNovSU has been created in 1993 from the merging of the two oldest Higher Education Institutions in Veliky Novgorod: the Pedagogical and Polytechnical Institutes. Followed by the inclusion of the Novgorod Agricultural Academy, NovSU became the largest Higher Education Institution in the Novgorod region and counts nowadays 8 institutes, 4 colleges, a Re-Training Faculty, Research Centre, Scientific Library, Centre for New Information Technologies, Innovation Department, Publishing Centre, Marketing Centre, Press Centre, and other subdivisions.

NovSUA bit of history about NovSU: In the year 1030, Prince Yaroslav the Wise settled in Novogord the Great and started teaching priests' and seniors' children reading and writing. The Education was seen as being  vital already in the 11th Century - thus one can find traces of various educational institutes across the middle-age. It is an evident consequence that in the recent development NovSU took the name of Prince Yaroslav the Wise: "Yaroslav-the-Wise Novgorod State University".

NovSUVeliky Novgorod is a historic city in the North-West of Russia, located between Saint Petersbourg and Moscow and its population amounts to 220.000 inhabitants.
