The educational part of the project was developed by RUDN University academics:
- Exam Russian (for university applicants);
- Business Russian (for career);
- Native Russian (for emigrants);
- Intensive Russian (for students);
- Modern Russian (for travel);
- Easy Russian (for children);
- Professional Russian (for specialists);
- Literary Russian (for readers);
- School Russian (for secondary school students);

- Practical Russian (for employees);
- Virtual Russian (for Internet users), etc.
The platform is intended for adults and children, who study Russian to prepare for exams, use the language in professional and business environment, communicate online, and other purposes.
A modern interactive platform and a clear mobile application allow you to practice wherever is convenient: at home, in a cafe, in a park, or on the way to work. You can choose a convenient time for classes and your own shade of Russian from the multifaceted palette of courses.
The personal training program for each student in the applications and on the website is built by a special algorithm based on the proficiency level and learning goals.
“Long before the pandemic, RUDN University began to develop distance education, elaborating a large number of applied electronic and digital courses in Russian as a foreign language, and today it was completely ready for new challenges and the transition to educational smart technologies”, said Anzhela Dolzhikova, RUDN First Vice-Rector - Vice-Rector for Educational Activities.
“In 2020, when the need for high-quality online training services had increased dramatically, MTS began developing a platform that can programmatically build an individual learning path for each student. Combining the IT resources of MTS and the many years of experience of RUDN University teachers and methodologists helped create a product that will be useful to thousands of people around the world. I believe that teaching the Russian language together with the leading university of the country has become one of the most interesting solutions for the development of the educational direction of the company ”, said Vassily Aleksutkin, project manager of Smart Rus.
300 students from 31 countries have been learning Russian online with RUDN University teachers. The Digital Pre-University Faculty of RUDN University celebrates its first anniversary on September 15!
The academic year starts in a mixed format at RUDN University from 1 September 2021. International students who are unable to enter the Russian Federation due to the closed borders start studying in a distance format. All other full-time students will study on campus taking into account the recommendations of Rospotrebnadzor.
