The Russian language proficiency among foreign students can be checked in various ways, while choosing the best in the country is a very hard task. Once every 2 years, the All-Russian Olympiad for RFL students takes place at the RUDN University, teams of all higher educational institutions of Russia are invited to participate.
The team could include up to 5 people - a leader, 2 students of science and technology and 2 students of general humanitarian majors. The participants cannot be representatives of Russian-speaking families, foreigners studying in a school where they teach the Russian language, holders of bachelor's degrees in the fields of “Philology”, “Linguistics”, “Translator”, “Teaching the Russian language".
The Olympiad took place in 2 rounds. First, all participants wrote a 3-hour essay based on the visuals. For 3 hours, foreign students had to write an essay reflecting the topic and tasks.
All participants went to the second round, but only 12 people became finalists - 6 from each specialty.

About how the practice was organized for medical students of the 4th and 5th years, which residents were “hired” back in March and which exam is the main one for the final year students - in an interview with Alexei Abramov, MD, professor, director of RUDN University Medical Institute.
“The very name of the form of training – “full-time” (ochny in Russian) - means the opportunity to teach, looking in the eyes (ochi in Russian)." Do you think these are the words of a philosopher or a philologist? They are not. This is engineer Pavel Davydenko, assistant professor of the Department of Mechanic and Instrument Engineering, RUDN Engineering Academy. In distance teaching he uses his son's toys to explain the principle of gearing and manipulators of industrial robots. And the daughter gives him room at her desk after she takes online lessons at school.
