"The significant decision to establish our University was made 60 years ago", rector of RUDN University Vladimir Filippov
Dear colleagues, students, graduates, partners!
The significant decision to establish our University was made 60 years ago. We have worked our way from a higher education institution which mainly trained staff for developing countries to a comprehensive research university — from Peoples’ Friendship University to RUDN University, the scientific and educational centre which is well-known and recognized in Russian and world rankings.
Today the University brings together students from 158 countries, and the number of RUDN University alumni increases by 5-6 thousand year by year — our graduates work in almost all countries.

This became known after the publication of the THE World University Rankings by Subject 2022: Social Sciences. In Social Sciences RUDN University is in the group 401-500.
