50 Universities of Eurasia – 2021

Special edition OCA Magazine (London)

Higher education in the countries of the Eurasian region has deep historical roots that gave to the culture of the world such great geniuses as Khwarizmi, Ulugbek, Avicenna, Lomonosov. Many scientists who were educated in higher institutions of Kazan, Moscow, Bukhara, Samarkand and St. Petersburg made a huge contribution to the world civilization. Hundreds of years later, these scholarly traditions are continued by more than 1,500 universities in the Eurasian region.

Our editorial board decided to publish (inspired by Forbes magazine) a special issue of 50 Universities of Eurasia 2021. The issue will be interesting for scientists, international students and experts in the field of higher education. The aim of the project is to bring together top universities, experts and media representatives to promote academic education and research opportunities in the region.

A special edition of OCA Magazine: 50 Universities of Eurasia-2021 will be published in London in June 2021 in English. Due to the space constraint, we have reduced the number of participants from the countries and regions of Eurasia, which are located on the territory of the former Soviet Union.

We invite you to take part by nominating ‘your’ university for publication in the most prestigious journal dedicated to the Eurasian region, published in London since 2009. 

Select university can publish an article about its achievements with infographics and/or an interview with the president.
