A Preparatory Department for international citizens was opened in February 2015 at the USTU International Department. The University was given the opportunity to accept for study foreigners who did not speak Russian. During the first year, they study Russian and other necessary subjects, and then, in the summer, pass entrance exams and enter higher education programs (bachelor and master). Last academic year there were 18 international students studied Russian in 2 groups.
The teachers of the Preparatory Department do great work. In 10 months, international students master the Russian language to a level acceptable for continuing university education.
