We live in an epoch when society is involved in the process of globalization. That’s why we follow the statement of famous scientist of XX century Mikhail Bakhtin: in dialogical meeting of two or more cultures they don’t merge and don’t mix, every culture keeps its unity and opened integrity but they enrich each other.

Our students learn not only Udmurt and Russian languages, but also English, German, Finnish and Hungarian. Students work on probations in the best universities of Finland, Hungary, Germany, Estonia and for their part introduce Udmurt culture to the students of foreign HEI’s.
