The programs of international academic and student mobility are an integral part of the Bologna system. It is necessary to emphasize the double diplomas programs, included training and international student exchange. Over the years, the PFUR (Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia) has been cooperating and developing partnership relations with the world's leading universities, including Spain. At present, the PFUR and the University of the Balearic Islands (UIB) have signed the agreements relating to the establishment of double diplomas programs: programs of the double master's program "Cultural heritage: research and management" (since 2009); and the candidate/Ph.D. double diploma program (since 2015). The graduates from these universities are able to have state diplomas of two countries - the Russian Federation and the Kingdom of Spain. Participation of the students in these programs contributes to the professional mobility of young professionals, whose main goal is the opportunity to receive the multifaceted education in the selected field of study, as well as an acquaintance with the cultural values of the European environment.
In this paper the authors examine the global trends of shaping the need for lifelong learning, which change at both the technology foundation and the intellectual learning environment. The development of the Internet and the growth of its information and communication opportunities contribute to the development and rapid expansion of remote education. The effectiveness of the training and studying in the remote (online) environment will directly depend on the scientific and methodological feasibility of the developed techniques, forms, methods and learning technologies.
El autor pone el acento en la capacidad de la Federación Rusa para integrar a las migraciones del espacio post soviético, evitando una posible crisis migratoria a partir de la experiencia, normatividad y organizaciones de la Federación, mismas que podrían servir de guía para resolver la crisis migratoria de los países europeos. A pesar de las grandes dimensiones de la migración, Rusia no atraviesa, a diferencia de Europa, por una crisis migratoria. En gran medida ello se debe a que la Federación Rusa como un Estado plurinacional y como sucesora de la urss tiene la experiencia histórica de aplicar los principios de la concordia entre naciones. También se examina el modelo ruso de adaptación sociocultural de los migrantes laborales como un elemento importante de la política estatal de migración de la Federación Rusa, se muestra el papel de las instituciones de la sociedad civil en el proceso de adaptación de los migrantes.
One of the fundamental principles of the Bologna Convention is to create conditions for mobility of teachers and trainees, in this context, the intellectual migration provides the possibility of such mobility. In the period of universal mondialisation and internationalization of cultural, historical and educational traditions at universities are global goals. And in this context the program of double magistracy creates the conditions for such activities as academic mobility and its implementation in the framework of interuniversity cooperation is one of the fundamental points of the bilateral agreement between RUDN University and UGA. This type of migration became possible with the development of the Bologna process as well as increased attractiveness of Russia for expats and intellectual migrants and on the other hand, the traditionally high evaluation of French level and quality of education. In turn, the implementation of programs of double diplomas promotes intellectual migration between Russian and French universities in particular expanding the conceptual framework of scientific relations and academic mobility.
Russia solves the problem of university’s unified cross-cultural educational environment formation quite successfully. It has educative and training potential in the development of students’ cultural and linguistic abilities for their social and civic competence formation, willingness to live and work in a multicultural, multi-ethnic, multi-confessional Russian society. Most foreign students study in Moscow and St. Petersburg, as well as in major cities of the Russian regions. The largest number of foreigners at universities are at the Peoples' Friendship University of Russia (Moscow), Moscow State University, named after M.V. Lomonosov, Saint Petersburg State University. A bright example of such environment is Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (PFUR), where are currently studying the representatives of 154 countries, including the CIS. As a result of the intercultural communication within the international student community of Russian universities, the graduates who came from the CIS countries decide to stay in Russia after graduation and to enter the national economy, while in case their return to the homeland, they potentially become economic, political and cultural influencers.
The article is devoted to the children of migrants in Russia and the implementation of their right to education. The authors deal with the legal and organizational problems of providing education for the children of migrants in the Russian Federation. Migrant children, their legal status, and socio-cultural adaptation have been the focus of attention recently as this problem is one of the complex issues of migration regulation processes. Migrant children being potential citizens of the Russian Federation will be able to influence the political and social processes in the country actively. A sound, balanced migration state policy can help migrants and their children to integrate into the host society, and education is one of the ways. In particular, a great role is played by teaching the language of the country. The authors focus on the Russian legislative practice in the sphere of migration and describe how the Russian law deals with the problem of the children of migrants. The situation of education of the migrant children in Russia is discussed and perspectives for the legislation development is indicated.
Considering the fact that starting from January 1, 2015 the complex exam is introduced for the first time in the Russian Federation for the foreign citizens, who apply for obtaining the employment and residence permits, this article reveals the educational policy strategy on this category of foreigners. This policy is considered within the framework of the migrants’ adaptation and integration into the Russian society. The authors of this research studied the effectiveness of new testing by collecting and analyzing statistical data. The sample included 492 respondents. The test results showed that the "Russian language" module turned out to be the most difficult. The survey conducted among foreign nationals also has indicated that the majority of them are having trouble with learning the Russian alphabet, as this alphabet, according to the respondents’ opinion, is very different from the Latin alphabet of the Romanic languages. Moreover, the number of received points has practically no correlation with the gender factor related to the candidates. The practical value is that this study became the basis for the development of a single database for statistical processing of test results.
Objectives: The aim of this article is to give a linguistic and methodological description and check the efficiency of a new integration testing model based on the concept of migrant civic competence. The authors develop and justify the definition of this concept and study its structure and content. Methods: The experiment was focused on verification of the comprehensibility of the new migrant civic competence testing model and quality of test materials developed within its frameworks. To achieve these goals, the authors used the methods of 1. Theoretical analysis in modern testology, sociology, general didactics, interdidactics, linguodidactics, cultural anthropology, and cognitive science in accordance with the research problem; 2. Statistical data processing and 3. Interviewing testers and RFL teachers. Findings: The results of the study have confirmed that the test materials meet all the necessary requirements and the test tasks are comprehensible to the majority of migrants who take the integration exam to receive a residence permit. Based on these results, it can be concluded that the proposed model can be used to develop test materials for other categories of migrants. The observations and key findings presented in this article may be useful for testers, testologists, and teachers involved in the migrants’ training and testing system. Application: The mentioned problem requires a special attention to the testers, testologists and authorities that take part in creating the test materials.
The article deals with consideration of the exam module system and its constituent part of the module “History of Russia”. The methodological bases of this module and its competence are revealed and its requirements to the knowledge level on the history of Russian, offered methodologies of preparation and practice of foreign citizens’ testing in the area of history are substantiated. Studying the history by migrants arriving in Russia is considered as a means of their adaptation to the general conditions of life in the country.
