Congratulations of RUDN Rector and President on the University's birthday

For RUDN University 2020 is the year of digitalization, new challenges and achievements. We've all learned how to work online – both1st-year students and professors. We launched the Digital Preparatory Faculty so that new students can start learning Russian before they come to Russia.

 

Liberia, Malawi, Norway, Trinidad and Tobago and Eswatini (Swaziland) have joined us - now we have students from160 countries. We trained over 5,000 students from 114 countries and hosted our first online graduation party. We have a new employee on the team – Aya, the robot cat, who answers questions about RUDN

 

For almost a year we worked and studied from home, but this did not make us less productive. We rarely saw each other in person, which made face-to-face meetings even more joyful.

 

Rector’s assignment for the next year - continue to develop professionally and enjoy more live communication.

 

My holiday greetings to RUDN students and staff! Happy birthday, RUDN University!

Oleg Yastrebov
Rector of RUDN University

2020 began with a big celebration of the 60th anniversary of our university. Finally, it became a year of reboot for us. We had to change all programs to make them suitable for digital format. We didn’t see each other’s eyes but monitors. Stable Internet connection was more important than a green traffic light on Leninsky Prospekt.

 

I am grateful to every teacher who was able to organize online classes in just a couple of weeks.

 

I am grateful to every volunteer who helped people and still continues to help. 1,000 RUDN doctors worked in hospitals. Hundreds of our volunteers came to help the elderly. Dozens of students helped neighbors in hostels.

 

I am grateful to our graduates. Many supported the students who had to return home. Thanks to their help, RUDN University has remained the most multinational university in Russia - Liberia, Malawi, Norway, Trinidad and Tobago, and Eswatini (Swaziland) have joined us.

 

I am grateful to the parents of each student who helped their children get higher education in real time.

 

This year has proven that together we are a university that makes the world a better place.

 

Happy Birthday, RUDN University!

Vladimir Filippov
President of RUDN University

Victoria Orlova, a student at RUDN Medical Institute: During four courses of study I have been thinking “Why is the profession of a nurse so underestimated?”

It is widely believed that a nurse is supposed to give and bring. But this is absolutely not true. My name is Victoria Orlova, I am a 4th year student of the Medical Institute of the Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia, majoring in “Nursing”.
