On the Problem of Internships for Students Studying Abroad

To the Ministry of Higher Education and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

Arrangements were made by the department yesterday for students studying abroad in the chemical automation technology major at D. Mendeleev University of Chemical Engineering(of which we have two).

Students majoring in electric vacuums already working at the factory (of which we have three) were originally told they would intern for six weeks, but after arriving at the factory were informed that the time had been changed to only five weeks.

Yesterday, the school sent a general branch committee member to the factory.  His attitude toward me was cold, and he informed me that their five weeks of internship would include one week of classes, further reducing their actual internship to only four weeks.  When I was negotiating with the school concerning the problems of students in other majors, I also brought this up and asked them to go back to the original plan.  I am currently standing by, awaiting instruction.
