> Russian-German Faculty

Dean Candidate of Pedagogical Sciences, Larissa R. Radchenko


The Russian-German Faculty was established in 1999, as a joint educational structure of Ulyanovsk State University and Universität Duisburg-Essen (Germany). The main concept of RGF educational programs is the training of highly qualified specialists according to the traditions of classical university education of Russia and Germany. The program is carried out in two stages. The first three years students are trained at USU where they learn the German and English languages, have additional training in special subjects then training is provided at universities of the cities of Duisburg, Osnabryuk, Furtvangen, Krefeld (Germany).

Duration of training depends on the program chosen by the student. Graduates of the Russian-German faculty gain diplomas of the state standard of the Russian Federation and Germany.
