International Relations Department

The RSUH International Relations Department as an element of the RSUH educational, research and innovational development was founded in 1994 for coordination and practical realization of international cooperation with foreign partners. Our primary goal is to encourage the RSUH integration into the world research, educational and informational field.

Today the RSUH cooperates with more than 120 partners worldwide, among which are Great Britain, Germany, Italy, the USA, France, Sweden, Egypt, South Korea, Japan, Canada, Poland, etc.

Today at the RSUH there are 15 joint education and research centers, 2 institutes and 22 international specializations which connect our University with leading educational institutions from all over the world. RSUH international centers have 26 foreign partners and more than 500 students.

Educational methods in international centers are focused on professional training of students from different divisions which provide international specializations such as Division for Archival Studies, Division for History, Political Science and Law, Division for History and Philology, Division for Theoretical and Applies Linguistics, Division for Management, Division for History of Art and Division for Sociology.

International Centers have unique collections of books and information materials (more then 14000 exemplars) which help students to learn more about their specializations and to deepen their knowledge of foreign cultures, traditions, history and languages.

With the help of foreign embassies and active student participation, International Relations Department organizes different cultural and research activities such as exhibitions, conferences, concerts, presentations of famous writers and days of national cultures, etc. Cultural Cooperation with foreign partners gives a wonderful opportunity to learn more about national  traditions and customs, history and languages of different countries.
