Press about us


The newspaper “Smolenskaya gazeta” conducted interview of Roman Beliutin, the head of the Department for International Relations at Smolensk State University. He said that the role of foreign languages in our life grows. Russian institutes of high education want to cooperate with European educational institutions, that’s why now the guarantee of successful career is proficiency in foreign languages.



The Department for International Relations at Smolensk State University tries to expand cooperation with international institutes of higher education. The main partner of Smolensk State University is University of Hagen, where our students have an opportunity to take European certificates of degree and get bilingual courses “Economic German”. One more point of cooperation with Germany is participation of students (Foreign languages) in educational programmes of German Cultural Center named after Goethe.

We’re going to arrange Summer school for international students in Smolensk. There will be lectures, seminars etc. Within this Summer school students will find out new things about culture and history of our country and our city.

Now we are entering into cooperation with Polish universities. First we’ll communicate in English but we understand that we live in the multicultural and multilingual world, so we’re going to consider the opportunity to teach Polish at Smolensk State University.
