Russian language courses are designed to help non-native Russian speakers achieve the proficiency required to study in Russian-taught academic programmes.

Teachers of the School of Russian Language and Natural Sciences do the essential educational work at the department. They are highly qualified experts with decades of experience. In their work, teachers use the latest language teaching techniques; the educational material and the methods of its presentation are placed under scrutiny to design the course, its duration and the number of teaching hours. 10 teachers with Ph.D. work at the department.

Teachers of the department are at the same time tutors of groups and international students’ supervisors. They teach the Russian language, assist in the social and cultural adaptation of students, organize and conduct various extracurricular activities. The academic year at the Department of Foundation Studies is saturated not only with academic work, international students are also involved in public, cultural and sports life of our university. Guided tours, exhibitions, meetings, concerts help students get to know Russia, its culture, and people.

Thus, Russian students of the local universities have the opportunity to learn about the culture and traditions of the peoples of other countries by visiting interesting, colorful exhibitions organized by students of the Department.

All this contributes to the development of tolerance among the youth.
