Russian Language at KSTU
It is almost 60 years since the time when the first overseas citizens became the students of our University. More than 3000 foreign students from 91 countries have received their education at KSTU since then. At present Pre-University Department for foreign citizens conducts the training of prospective students from far neighbouring countries.
Training of national specialists for foreign countries is an essential part of the external economic activity of the Russian Federation. The degree of involvement of each individual University in the process of training highly qualified specialists is an important indicator of the rating level of that University in the world educational space.
Pre-University Department for foreign citizens has been set up to contribute to the improvement of international status of KSTU, its competitiveness among educational institutions of the region and Federal Fishery Agency. Our Department aims to provide training of overseas citizens for their further education at the University or other higher educational institutions of the Russian Federation, to promote the Russian language in the world and to strengthen its prestige as a language of international communication.
Pre-University Department for foreign citizens teaches overseas students Russian as a Foreign language; it provides students with training in the theoretical disciplines and humanities necessary for their studies at the KSTU and other higher educational institutions of Russia and CIS countries (mainly technical and marine science).
Apart from this, Pre-University Department for foreign citizens prepares students for certification testing in Russian as a Foreign language; the Department provides consulting services in the field of teaching Russian as a Foreign language.
