«Odessa International» – about Odessa, International-style!

  The first international newspaper in the history of Odessa – «Odessa International» was created by the Odessa I.I. Mechnikov National University. This is the only periodical for foreign students in our city. There are more than five hundred foreign students in Odessa.
  «Odessa International» is published in English and Russian languages. The educational potential of the city and the range of educational capabilities of ONU will be discussed on its pages. “OI” will advise foreigners on where to go if they want to study in Odessa.
  The newspaper was initiated on the basis of the ONU press-service by lecturers and students of the University that work with foreign colleagues. “The foreign students that come to study at ONU every year need up-to-date and available information, - note the editors of “OI” assistant professor Vladymyr Poltorak, Vladymyr Nemertsalov and third-year politology student Semen Postolov. – This is why we try to make our newspaper as useful as possible for them.”
  The project is unique to Odessa and the whole Ukraine. Monitoring investigation revealed that there are similar publications in Switzerland and Canada. «Odessa International» will be published monthly and distributed for free among ONU foreign students. It may also be found at various socialization centers, in public institutions, language and cultural centers, universities of Odessa. In the first issue of the newspaper, readers will learn about the biggest areas of Ukraine, find out about the attitude towards international marriages in China, discover what attracts Italians in Odessa, become aware of fashion trends that are forecasted for this summer and much more.

  The newspaper’s first presentation was visited by the general consul of PRC – U Syaoin, who also was the first consul to appear in “The consul’s speech” rubric. The foreign students from various parts of the world came to the presentation and read the new publication eagerly.
