Olympiad in Russian as a foreign language: who among RUDN international students knows Russian better?
The second round of the Olympiad was attended by 1st – 4th year foreign students, who had passed the correspondence written stage in their faculties. The in-person student competition was traditionally held separately in two directions - general humanitarian profiles and natural science and technical profiles. Participants presented and defended projects before the jury, the latter noting both good and fluent Russian (B2 +) and the culture of Russian verbal communication, as well as knowledge of regional geographic material and general cultural background material on the subject of the Olympiad and the ability to present this knowledge in a project in Russian.
The work of the finalists was evaluated by the heads of the teams of the faculties under the chairmanship of Elena Baryshnikova, PhD, associate professor of the department of the Russian language and the methodology of its teaching.

The paramedic’s task is to provide urgent, emergency medical care to the patient despite of often unfavorable conditions. Rough roads, high vehicle speeds, or poor teamwork do not contribute to saving lives. Medical students can now try real work in an ambulance - an ambulance simulator has been opened at RUDN University accreditation and simulation center.
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.
